Battlefield 1943 Drops In June

DICE advances World War II by a year in June, announcing the release date and pricing details for their downloadable online multiplayer shooter Battlefield 1943.

A small slice of World War II is coming to the PlayStation network and Xbox Live Arcade on June 15th in DICE's Frostbyte-driven update to Battlefield 1942. It's the US Marines against the Imperial Japanese Navy as gamers participate in 24-player battles across Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. Utilising the Frostbyte Engine for the game means that all of the wonderful destruction from Battlefield: Bad Company is taking a trip back in time, meaning if you can't kill an opponent who is hiding you can more than likely kill his hiding place.

All of this for a mere US$15, or 1200 Microsoft points. Sounds like a bargain to me. Look for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network versions in June, with the PC version coming in September for some odd reason.
