Battlefield 2142 Expanding

Battlefield 2142: Northern StrikeToday, EA has announced the development of Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike, the first booster pack expansion for BF2142. Set to land on PCs via EA Link this March, Northern Strike will introduce three new maps, including the Bridge at Remagen, an Alpine Titan docking harbour in Port Bavaria and the Liberation of Leipzig, and new vehicles such as the European Union’s IFV Goliath and the Pan-Asian Coalition’s IFV Hachimoto. In addition, all-new badges, ribbons and unlocks will be included, among other updates.

“Our number one goal with Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike was to give fans more of the close-quarters combat, increased persistence and new toys they’ve been asking for,” said Kristoffer Bergqvist, the booster pack’s producer. “We’ve also added gameplay enhancements including two brand new vehicle types in an asymmetrical set-up. Furthermore, we’re introducing the Titan game mode into an urban setting and will debut the intensified Conquest Assault Lines game mode.”
