Battlefield 1943 Storms The Front Next WeekS

Join the battle to unlock the Coral Sea map next week, when DICE deploys Battlefield 1943 over Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

World War II is alive and well on July 8th and 9th, when DICE's first download-only installment of the Battlefield series hits the Xbox 350 and PlayStation 3. 1200 Microsoft Points or $15 delivers 24-player battles across three maps to your console in the form of a 560MB download. The Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, and Wake Island maps should keep players going until they reach the goal required to unlock the fourth map. Once the worldwide community reaches 43 million kills between both platforms, the Coral Sea map is unlocked, doubtlessly making it impossible to find a game on the other three maps for at least a week afterwards.

Gotta love fostering community spirit through killing.
