Battlefield Bad Company 2's Single-Player Will A Serious Matter

We already knew that EA believes March's Battlefield Bad Company 2 poses a threat to Activision's Modern Warfare series. In terms of multiplayer, they've made the case. For single player, they're finally getting specific.

Here's the game's new single-player trailer:

Developers from EA's DICE studio, longtime makers of the Battlefield series, told Geoff Keighley on the seasons premiere of Game Trailers TV that the campaign will last 10 hours, reuniting the lead characters from the first game, but putting them in a more serious situation. The game's producer Patrick Bach promised a similar scale of action as what's been shown for the game's multiplayer. Points of emphasis continues to be that players can use the vehicles they see in the game and blow up any building.

The game's executive producer, Karl Magnus Troedsson, referred to the division of labour on the single-player and multiplayer portions of Battlefield Bad Company 2 as "a 50/50 effort".

In December, EA CEO John Riccitiello told Kotaku that Bad Company 2 is part of EA's effort to reclaim some war-game glory: "I'm not saying it's going to happen tomorrow, but in the way that Activision sort of alternates sequels of Modern Warfare and Call of Duty and owns the leadership position in FPS [first-person-shooter] , between [EA's]Medal of honour and Battlefield, I want it back."

Check out the full episode of GT TV to see if Modern Warfare owners ought to be envious.

    Good on them. Activision have gotten WAY too complacent with MW2, thinking they can do whatever the fuck they want because people will still buy their games anyway. Nothing like some healthy competition to spark innovation

    1. Make game
    2. Use Queens of the Stone Age in trailer
    3. ????
    4. Profit!

    Heck yes, This just inspired me to go out and buy the first one. Loved the use of Queens of the Stone Age as well.

    does anyone know the name of the some in the tralier? i cant find it :-(

    dammit! name of the song* in the trailer* fixed HAHA

      you think i aint worth a dollar but i feel like a millionair .. .. by queens of the stone age.

    Even though it looks like they are going after nukes instead of gold for themselves, I hope they keep some of the Three Kings feeling the first one had.

    This looks awesome!

    Love it love it LOVE IT!

    That trailer just put a layer of estapol on the already cemented fact that I'll be preordering this sucker!

    Maaaan not another game I gotta buy....im gonna be so broke

    Why are they still using XM8 guns in the game, Obama abolished all plans to use that in the Army ages ago.

    Just pre-ordered on steam. =D

    Insta-buy for me, can't wait for the beta next week on the 28th.

    oh yeah..... MW is shit compared to this.... and I didn't even care about the SP for this game..until now that is. A storyline that looks to make some sense = AWESOME!
