Electronic Arts and Digital Illusions announce that their popular Battlefield franchise will make its console debut on the PS2 later this year. First screens inside.

Electronic Arts and Digital Illusions have today announced the development of Battlefield: Modern Combat for the PlayStation 2. Currently scheduled for release toward the end of this year, the game will be the first in the Battlefield series to appear on a console and will allow up to 24 players to battle one another simultaneously online while also communicating with one another via USB headsets.

Battlefield: Modern Combat will allow players to fight for one of three military superpowers--the United States, China, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Players will have access to more than 70 different state-of-the-art weapons and advanced weapon systems in the game, including heat-seeking missiles, laser-designated bombs, and more. The 30-plus vehicles in the game will include tanks, helicopters, and other fast-attack craft.

Further information on Battlefield: Modern Combat is scarce at present, save for the fact that players who enjoy in-game success will be able to increase their ranks and can garner promotions in what EA describes as a persistent online world. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.
