DICE is holding a week-long celebration to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its Battlefield franchise. Each day until September 28 the company will run a special feature for fans of the series, such as reposting trailers from Battlefield 1942 with comments by its original creator or organizing a chat with Battlefield 1942 veteran Lars Gustavsson, who has worked on almost every Battlefield title since the start.
To kick things off the company is discounting a bunch of Battlefield games on Origin.com, so even those who are new to the series have something to look forward to. For 24 hours only until midnight September 20, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand Expansion Pack, Battlefield 2: Complete Collection, and Battlefield 2142 Deluxe are all available for $10 each on EA’s digital distribution platform.
That’s not a bad deal considering Battlefield 3 was released less than a year ago to mostly positive reviews and currently sells for $30, with the Back to Karkland expansion landing a couple of months after release. Battlefield 3 recently saw its second expansion arrive with Armored Kill. The latter isn’t part of $10 deal, but nonetheless if you’ve missed out on the Battlefield 3 action thus far this is a good chance to jump in.
Check out the Battlefield blog over the next week for other celebration-related announcements.
Battlefield 3, the latest in a long line of Battlefield titles is likely the most anticipated game of 2011. Using the new Frostbite 2 engine the game promises to deliver jaw dropping visuals coupled with fast paced action packed fun. DICE recommends a quad-core CPU along with 4GB of RAM. As for the graphics card a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950 is suggested.
