The game will be based around aerial dogfights, trench combat and sea warfare, and is set to reinvent the classic maps from 1942 -- Wake Island, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima and Coral Sea are inspired by their predecessor and will feature a striking lack of cover.
The Coral Sea map will only be unlocked once the 43 million community kill incentive is released -- probably a little easier than it sounds given the 24-player support.
“Battlefield 1943 is going to change consumer expectations of what a downloadable game can be. By offering Frostbite’s next generation destruction technology with a full Vehicle Warfare FPS multiplayer experience at a mere 560MB, Battlefield 1943 sets a new standard,” said Gordon Van Dyke, Producer on Battlefield 1943. “Our goal is to blow people away with a fully accessible, retail-calibre game for veteran Battlefield fans and shooter fans alike to enjoy for only £9.99.”
Wake Island has already been video featured -- today we bring you Guadalcanal.
