Battlefield 2 demo debuting on GameSpot

GameSpot will world premiere the demo for EA and DICE's much-anticipated military shooter.

Although Battlefield 2 won't invade stores until June 21, PC gamers will get a chance to test-fire a demo of Electronic Arts' shooter sooner. EA confirmed today that it is planning to release a sample of Digital Illusions CE's forthcoming modern-combat shooter "very soon." When the Battlefield 2 demo is released, it will make its on GameSpot, and will be initially available not only to GameSpot registered users but also to unregistered visitors as well.

The Battlefield 2 demo premiere is a part of the buildup to the upcoming release of GameCenter. The GameCenter sneak peek release for GameSpot Complete subscribers is also forthcoming, and the full version of Battlefield 2 will be one of the top multiplayer games supported in GameSpot's upcoming premium gaming service. For more information on GameCenter, check out www.gamecenter.com.

The demo will feature three variations of the Gulf of Oman map from Battlefield 2, which is set in a near-future conflict between three clashing powers: The United States, China, and the fictional Middle Eastern Coalition (MEC). The single-player, 16-player, and 32-player versions of the map included in the demo will pit the US against the MEC in time-limit-based combat. (China is not playable in the demo.)

However, the demo will not include any additional maps or other features found in the retail version of Battlefield 2. Besides the Chinese forces, the full BF2 will feature 30 vehicles and 20 soldier kits from all three sides. It will also sport a total of 12 maps, each available for 16, 32, and 64 players. Online play will be enhanced with voice-over IP and persistent character scoring, while the new Battlefield Commander mode will give players a tactical edge on the, er, battlefield.

While waiting for the , gamers can check out GameSpot's new Hands-On Impressions from a near-final build of the game.

yeah i can play SP on full power, but to get it to run smooth in MP i need to crank down most of the graphics to medium. But thats still with 4xAA and 8x AF.

I did get this last night tho:

I had that problem but i reset all my gfx settings and set them again and it played fine.

Its pretty fine..dumb map for jets..you get to fly straight for 4 seconds then you have to turn. I like the buggy or the blackhawk the most...not gunning but being the driver and havin my guys on vent be gunners. :support:

I only see acouple people do the bunny hopping when you goto shoot at them. It doesnt help alot though cause jumping is really slow. I dont like the fact taht you have to shoot people with 2 full clips or 8 sniper rounds.

With me i did it thru the game. If you have a newer ati card go grab the new catalyst drivers, they might help.

@GRT: Yep thats BattleField for ya mate. 2 clips all the rest. Still a great game tho. Need code has improved aswell. I have had very little lag.
