Battlefield 1943 Priced, Hitting Consoles First

DICE's downloadable 24-person multiplayer shooter Battlefield 1943 will arrive on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this June, the studio announced today, priced at $15. nope

The promised PC version will then follow in September, carrying the same price point. Technically, it hasn't been delayed, as a vague "summer" release date was originally announced, and summer doesn't end until the autumnal equinox on September 22.

As before, the download-only game packs three maps from 1942--Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima--that have been remade with destructible environments.

"We want to offer gamers the most accessible online shooter experience and the best value found in any premium download title," said producer Gordon Van Dyke.
