The demo will feature three variations of the Gulf of Oman map from Battlefield 2, which is set in a near-future conflict between three clashing powers: The United States, China, and the fictional Middle Eastern Coalition (MEC). The single-player, 16-player, and 32-player versions of the map included in the demo will pit the US against the MEC in time-limit-based combat. (China is not playable in the demo.)
However, the demo will not include any additional maps or other features found in the retail version of Battlefield 2. Besides the Chinese forces, the full BF2 will feature 30 vehicles and 20 soldier kits from all three sides. It will also sport a total of 12 maps, each available for 16, 32, and 64 players. Online play will be enhanced with voice-over IP and persistent character scoring, while the new battlefield commander mode will give players a tactical edge on the, er, battlefield.

Weiter findet sich auf ein BF2 Q&A zum Spiel selbst, dass am 23. Juni in den Händlerregalen in Deutschland stehen wird. Die Amis dürfen schon am 21. ran, um sich auf uns vorzubereiten. 🙂

Gamecloud – How do you think the clan and community features of Battlefield 2 will be received?

Ben Smith – I think that three core features are going to go over huge for the community at large. These features are: Battlerecorder, the BF2 Editor and Stats and Tracking. Starting with stats and tracking, I think this feature alone is worth the price of admission. There’s nothing quite like looking at the scoreboard and immediately being able to get a sense of which players have been playing Battlefield the longest and with the most dedication (just by seeing their Rank). And then, being able to progress through the ranks and gaining access to cool new weapons is going to be quite a draw for players to keep coming back. The BF2 Editor, our ful-featured Mod Tool, is going to enable the Community to make amazing new content and imagine entirely new and different battlefields compared to the core product, and this too will keep players coming back for more. Finally, Battlerecorder is going to allow players to relive their most impressive matches over and over again, and even easily create video highlight reels. For clans, this tool will become the ultimate Match Analysis tool, allowing leaders to view player’s roles and tendencies from any angle and at any speed.
