Developer DICE’s highly anticipated remake of the classic Battlefield 1942 comes out on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network today. Retailing for 15 USD on both platforms, Battlefield 1943 includes four maps from the original Battlefield 1942. Guadacanal, Wake Island, Iwo Jima and the Coral Sea are all remade with state of the art graphics and destructible environments using the Frostbite Engine.
Battlefield 1943’s release is the first XBLA and PSN digital distribution title to rival a retail game in terms of visual fidelity and multiplayer options. You can view the official launch trailer below.
Finally bringing the magic of Battlefield 1942 to a console audience for a very small price, Battlefield 1943 could very well become a multiplayer juggernaut on Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. The title has already received considerable critical acclaim, garnering an 85 average on Metacritic.
If you want to try out the game, a Battlefield 1943 multiplayer demo is now available on Xbox Live and Playstation Network for download.
