STACK’s Favorite Features
Ultimate Online Vehicle Warfare: By land, sea or air, the online world is invaded with the most satisfying vehicle combat experience to date. Ride through enemy lines with an ATV, or take them out from the sky in a transport helicopter. If it has a steering wheel, you can drive it; and with online multiplayer mode fined-tuned as well, the battle won’t stop until your internet crashes.
Variety of Multiplayer Modes: Team up with your crew and compete in four different multiplayer modes, each with a specific focus. Be an offense-minded player and attack the enemy, or drop back and defend the rush of incoming troops using Battlefield Conquest mode. Test your teamwork using two new squad-focused modes—Squad Deathmatch, in which players compete in groups of four to see who can outlast and survive the longest; and Squad Rush, where two teams are pitted against each other as attacker and defender. No matter what mode you choose, the team with the closest bond will triumph.
All-New Single Player Campaign: When you need a break from your crew but still want to kick some butt, the infamous “B Company” squad returns for an all-new single player campaign. Without giving away too much of the story, the scenario starts with Bad Company stumbling upon a secret shipment of prototype generators, which the Russians are using to create a weapon that will destroy the U.S. What does the group of elite soldiers do? The only way to find out is to pick up the controller and join the campaign.
STACK’s Take: This game is straight-up insane. There’s so much action with every mode, you’ll never want to put down the controller.
