DICE, the EA studio responsible for Battlefield: Bad Company has announced that the demo of sequel, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, has had over 2 million downloads combined on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live after just a mere 5 days of release with the full game being available to buy in early March 2010.
The success of the demo on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live along with the PC beta means that the game is going to be one of the must have first-person-shooters of 2010 and may prove to be a worthy successor to the first Battlefield: Bad Company game which received an average score of 84/100 on Metacritic for the PS3 version.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to hear that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is already in the hands of almost 2½ million gamers, and it hasn’t even shipped yet”, said Patrick Bach, Senior Producer on Battlefield: Bad Company 2. He also went onto to say that the large number of downloads is proof that the game is what action gamers are looking for and the game is “intelligent, strategic warfare that our competitors simply cannot replicate”.
Gamers can obtain the full game from March 2, 2010 in North America and March 5, 2010 in UK with the choice of either a standard edition or a Limited Edition which can be pre-ordered now. The demo closes on the 25th of February and then the wait for the full game is not a long one and hopefully DICE can provide an entertaining and thrilling experience.
