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.

Hey PC fans of '42, do we at DICE have a treat for you!

A remake built up from the ground, one to please the modern crowd.

However shamelessly we must inform, that 24 players is now the norm.

And gone are the many class selections, whittled down to 3 exceptions.

Serious wounds shall need no attention, just hide in the shadows for a healthy redemption.

The console release is soon to see light, but the mere mention of PC is no where in sight.

But we at DICE do indeed have a treat for you too,

and that's one last message to the PC crowd, a lively "Fuck You".
