Battlefield: Bad Company Ships to
Retail Stores Today

The blockbuster entertainment
experience of the summer has arrived!

The gold rush is here! EA Digital
Illusions CE AB (DICE) today announced that its highly anticipated summer
release, Battlefield: Bad Company has shipped to retail stores. The game will
land on retail shelves on June 25 in North America and June 27 in Europe.
Launching on PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360, players will join the ‘B’ Company, a
wayward band of soldiers more interested in the pursuit of gold and personal
financial gain than following the rules.

Battlefield: Bad Company delivers a
deep single-player campaign loaded with dark humor, intense combat and deafening
destruction. Players take on the role of Preston Marlowe, a young soldier whose
antics land him in the division with the highest mortality rate alongside other
troublemakers Sarge, Haggard and Sweetwater. Players will tackle harsh terrain
and fierce enemies with their squad of renegade soldiers as they search for an
elusive treasure using dozens of vehicles, weapons and deadly toys all at their
disposal for explosive experimentation.

Gamers can also jump online for some
intense multiplayer action as players become either an attacker or defender in
the Gold Rush multiplayer mode as they protect or destroy crates that hold
precious gold and their ticket home. As gamers embark on their quest for
financial freedom, they’ll experience the same classic Battlefield gameplay
including access to numerous vehicles, weapons and open maps as well as the new
tactical destruction that only Battlefield: Bad Company can deliver. The popular
Conquest mode made famous by the Battlefield franchise will be offered as a free
download* later this summer.

Battlefield: Bad Company is
developed by Sweden-based developer DICE,
