Battlefield 1943: Q&A with producer

EA today announced a July 8th (XBLA) and 9th (PSN) release date for Battlefield 1943, and quite fittingly we also received a Q&A from the XCN. The producer, Gordon Van Dyke, took time to answer a bunch of questions; he said no plans for DLC are made, but he thinks every 1942 map is fitting for remaking. I couldn't agree more, let's do it EA - I want my Omaha Beach!

I didn't add it in the news since I'm not 100% sure, but I think DICE said it only took a couple of hours for one guy to remake Coral Sea. That's promising for upcoming maps!

So, it's 4 maps total? that's really low and if it would only take a few hours sheesh... but I guess map packs for other FPS cost about. I like how in the interview they can't say they are setting a new standard on psn, BECAUSE THEY KNOW, WARHAWK>ALL!!!

uhhumm, well my 320gb hdd is ready when they ar..

Probably just because it's a dogfight-only map. There's gotta be far less work to do when you're in the air 99.9% of the time.

What's up?

    KORNdog @droezelke: I would. You'd have to prove otherwise and I'd decide if I believed you. Until then though I'll side with the victim. (1 minute ago)

    Loakum @droezelke: I'm glad that never happened to me. I'm too pretty a man for jail. They'll tear me up in a cell. (8 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Loakum: Just read Korn's reaction to it. He would say I'm guilty just because she claimed it. That says enough (11 minutes ago)

    Loakum @KORNdog: of all things to get premabanned for, it had to be something that boring. LOL!!! (12 minutes ago)

  • Loakum
    Loakum @droezelke: damn, I'm sorry to hear that. That's a hell of a thing to be accused of. (18 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: that has no bearing on what's going on here. I'd have been on her side too if she said you'd raped her until you could prove otherwise. (18 minutes ago)
