As a bit of a snack while we await the full meal of Bad Company 2, EA and DICE have announced that Battlefield 1943: Pacific will be released this summer as a downloabable on PC, Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. Here is a short description of the game courtesy of the press release:
"Using the same Frostbite engine, Battlefield 1943 takes players back to WWII. The game offers endless hours of 24 player multiplayer action over three classic and tropic locations; Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. Delivering the award-winning through-the-gun and vehicle warfare online experience DICE is best recognized for, Battlefield 1943 will have players battling in ruthless aerial dog fights and intense trench combat."
