- Take to the Skies, and then some! - Powered by one of the best engines in any online multiplayer game, Frostbite, you can bank, roll and loop your fighter plane while dog fighting with the enemy or dive-bomb a hostile squad. Leave nothing in your path as you drive a powerful tank through forests, houses and sandbag bunkers with a gunner on the roof. Flank the Marines with a fully loaded landing craft and turn the tide of the battle for the Imperial Japanese! The vehicles available can be devastating at the hands of an experienced Battlefield veteran so prepare to put your skills to the test.
With three fully equipped classes to choose from, you choose which role to play in the battle. As an infantry soldier your job is to push the opposing forces from their strongholds, take out vehicles with your powerful recoilless rifle, man an anti-air gun, or drive a tank. Thre rifleman is at home in the trenches with the trusty bayonet and can thin out the opposing infantry ranks for those crowded situations with the M1 or Type 5 rifle. The camouflaged scout will sniff out the enemy and strike from a distance, using a long distance m1903 or Type 98 rirle, but don't underestimate the scout when it gets up close and personal; they have Expack explosives which can level walls, soldiers and vehicles before you can say, "Boom!"
