Aussies Ignore Battlefield 1943, EA Adds Local Servers Anyway

After a chaotic launch that rendered the game unplayable for many, EA has committed to delivering Australian servers for Battlefield 1943.

Following up his hopeful post from yesterday, DICE producer Gordon Van Dyke has now confirmed local servers are on the way. On the official orums, he wrote:

“Australian Servers are Happening! I got official word this will happen within the next few days! So if you already bought it this should make your experience 1,000,000,000,000 times better!”

Fantastic news. Especially considering what he wrote next:

“I had to fight hard to get this after we got the sales numbers and Australia had really low sales numbers, it was 8 times less than Japan, 24 times less than the UK, and 34 times less than the USA! I hope I see this change so I can add even more servers in your region!”

So, let’s get this straight. BF1943 sells badly in Australia and EA still decides to get us some local servers? I kinda like this new EA.

Although I guess many of you may have been holding off after hearing about the launch problems. Are you now keen to give it a try?
