Share And Comment

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.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2's demo has proved irresistible to gamers

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”.

The single player campaign will again feature the return of Pvt. Preston Marlowe, Pvt. Terrance Sweetwater, Pvt. George Gordon Haggard Jr., and Sgt. Samuel D. Redford as the main characters of the game

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.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
