New Battlefied Series Will Be Announced This Friday

34 second read


Ben Cousins of EA has announced that they will be announcing an all-new Battlefied this Friday.

Just to be clear, by “all-new”, I mean a completely new Battlefield series of games. In other words, this will not be Battlefield 3, or Bad Company 3, or Battlefield Heroes or even a nineteen-forty-something-or-other either.

They have really put the emphasis on the fact that this new Battlefield will be “completely new” and also shot down rumours that arose because of a URL that EA had snatched up a short while back for “Battlefield Assault”,

We will have more on the matter come Friday.

  1. I’m hoping it’s Battlefield 1861 American Civil War. I would gladly be a confederate soldier fighting off the yankees for my right to bear arms, impregnate slaves and look totally fabulous in a grey outfit!


    Seriously though, I really wish game devs would look outside the lame WW2 and AMERICON modern warfare box and consider all the awesome global battles over the last few centuries. Shit! I’d even play a Battlefield 1899 The Second South African War.

    Where are the local game devs? Comeon guys, make South African games for South Africans.

    Interesting. I just hope it isn’t a Call of Duty/Medal Of Honor clone. I’d hate to see EA jump on the bandwagon.

    The Battlefield games have always been in a class of it’s own and I hope to see it stay that way.

    DICE need to combine Battlefield with their other game …. Mirror’s Edge!

    Imagine a combat game where you move as fluidly as you do in Mirror’s edge .. it’s be *amazing*

    I’ve been PREACHING exactly that point for years!!!…ok months!..

    but how cool would a SA FPS game about the Anglo Boerewar be!…and obviously excluding any racial unertones goes without saying…just capturing the suspense and adventure the boers, brits and locals during that time would be amazing to play.

    I’m surprised the SA War is not an RTS game.

    You could even have a game based on the Border Wars, granted it was South Africa’s Vietnam, but still. You can tell the story from both sides, the idealistic black kid volunteering to join the liberation forces, after his father gets picked up by the police, and the white kid, fresh out of school drafted into the SADF, and fighting for “volk en vaderland”.

    The possibilities are endless.

    @Christo If I was developing the game I would include the racial overtones because obviously that was the norm in those days, but you can always “Hollywoodify” it, by making the main guy conscious of all the injustices. It wouldn’t be a stretch though.

    For instance, the British soldier who comments on the concentration camps, or chooses not to shoot on black refugees or the Boer rebel who uses his sniping ability to keep the Imperial Army from executing black and boer prisoners. etc. etc.

    I just wish DICE could step back from war games for a second and give me my Mirror’s Edge sequel. It wasnt perfect but it was still a great FPS platformer and it has so much potential to expand.

    Oh man, a Red Dead redemption style game set on the frontier in South Africa (during the 1800s), complete with dodgy stereotypes, gold miners, zulu warriors, dodgy British imperial soldierrs.

    Damnit! I would buy that game!!
