|The year is 2142, and the dawn of a new Ice age has thrown the world into a panic.
The math is simple and brutal: The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction
of the Earth's population. Some will live, most will die. In Battlefield 2142,
players will choose to fight for one of two military superpowers in an epic battle
for survival, the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition. Armed with
a devastating arsenal of hi-tech assault rifles, cloaking devices and sentry guns,
players will also do battle using some of the most imposing vehicles known to man.
Massive battle Mechs wage fierce combat on the ground, while futuristic aircraft
rule the skies. When facing one of these new behemoths, players will need to use
their wits and an arsenal of new countermeasures like EMP grenades to level the
playing field. Team play features allow up to 64 players to enter the action on the
front lines as part of a formal squad, or work behind the scenes in Commander Mode
to direct the strategic assaults of their teammates. With in-game success, players
increase their rank and unlock awards, including new weapons, medals and more,
delivering the most comprehensive and flexible persistence in the Battlefield
universe to date.
