Overview

Battlefield: Bad Company (also known as BF:BC, or just Bad Company) is a first-person shooter currently under development by EA DICE, and scheduled for release on June 23, 2008 on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game was hinted at just before the release of Battlefield 2, and then announced sixteen months later.

Bad Company applies some new features to the franchise, including an environment that can be almost entirely destroyed, and a single-player storyline.

Story

The player takes on the role of Preston Marlowe, who is a rookie to 22nd Army battalion, B-Company, a squad of insubordinate soldiers who are risking everything by going AWOL on a personal quest for gold deep behind enemy lines. It has been stated that the movies Kelly's Heroes and Three Kings have been strong influences for the story.

Critisms

There have been criticisms regarding the game's development and downloadable extras. DICE has stated that five of the ten weapons will be available instantly with the Gold Edition of the game, or by ranking up to level 25 in in the regular game.
