Battlefield: Bad Company (BFBC) is a first-person shooter under development by Digital Illusions CE. Bad Company will be the first Battlefield game to be developed specifically for next-gen consoles.

Destructible Environments
One of the new features exclusive to Bad Company will be the addition of 90% destructible environments. Most of the terrain will be able to be destroyed, enabling players to create strategies with this new opportunity. For example, snipers might be able to blow away a corner of a building so that they could use that section as a place from which to fire. This does not mean that they are invincible, however. Vehicles such as tanks will have the firepower to destroy many of these buildings, encouraging the player to retreat and find another strategic point. How important this feature will be in the game is still unknown.

Squads
In a move similar to Battlefield 2142, the amount of soldier classes will be lowered, resulting in a combination of the classic soldier classes. This will create "new loadouts of weapons and equipment."

Weapons
Available weapons are currently unknown, but they will likely contain modern favorites as well as some new concepts based on future weaponry, such as the XM8 carbine with an M320 grenade launcher that is shown in a few of the screenshots. Also in the magazine "PLAYSTATION", it has a screenshot of the player holding a bazooka and the M8 assault rifle.

Ironsight
Ironsight is an aiming mode to be featured in the game, as it was in Battlefield 2. Aiming in Bad Company will now cause your firing direction to move in random directions to take away repetitive fire, just as it would work in real life. Using Ironsight will help to improve a player's aim, causing the player to focus on his target and temporarily blur out surrounding objects.

Gameplay Modes
Well-known for its popular multiplayer support, DICE will take on a different strategy for this game and focus additionally on the single-player component, while still maintaining the multiplayer features expected from a Battlefield game.

Single Player
While not much is revealed at the moment, the story, which takes place "just a few years into the future," involves a group of four AWOL soldiers fighting for money as well as payback. Their adventures will take place in locations such as Eastern Europe and other locations around the world. Whether or not the plot will involve the world's superpower armies is yet to be seen.

Characters
* Haggard is a soldier who apparently has a careless personality, shown by his amazement at his ability to "blow up anything." After discovering this fact from the narrator, he aimlessly fires at two buildings and before taking out the cameraman. He considers himself and the sergeant to be a great team.
* The currently nameless Sarge, Haggard's superior officer, has a more serious attitude toward whatever situation he is in, although he still has a somewhat prideful personality, using the war as a way to obtain "gold, revenge, and whatever's worth fighting for."

Multiplayer
Multiplayer mode will support up to 24 players though some sources are hinting 50 players, the same amount as Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Revealed screenshots hint that battles will take place in environments similar to Battlefield 2. Example locations will include towns and tropical areas. Recent screenshot confirms the return of the US HMMWV, tanks, and helicopters.
