The original Bad Company
spinoff in the Battlefield
series kept the franchise's setting firmly in modern times, but if the Bad Company 2 ESRB description
is true, you'll be seeing a return to WWII in the sequel. At the very least, the game's opening will bring players back to the Pacific side of the war, with the ESRB description saying, "In single-player mode, players conduct missions on an unnamed Japanese island during World War II and then move into the modern day through jungles, deserts, and snowy terrain."
Just like we've discovered in our way too many hours
with the game's multiplayer demo
, the description details the inclusion of "melee attacks with a power drill" (yes, seriously) and the characters use of profanity "during cutscenes and in the heat of battle." And yes, we're just as excited by the former as you might imagine.
