Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike HQ
Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike HQ (PC)
Three new maps provide the setting for the Booster Pack. High up in the Alps the EU uses launch pods to assault a PAC Titan docking harbour in the map Port Bavaria. Bridge at Remagen, the scene for one of WWII’s major battles, is once again the setting for intense battles as both sides fight to secure the bridge. Finally, night has fallen when the EU launches their assault on the city in the Liberation of Leipzig.
Battlefield 2142™: Northern Strike introduces two new vehicle types. The heavy IFV Goliath is a massive, slow-moving firing platform available to the EU. It is used to provide cover, as well as health and ammunition, to nearby infantry. The fast-moving hovering light IFV Hachimoto, available to the defending PAC only, is an efficient vehicle killer when staffed by a well coordinated pilot/gunner team.
With ten new unlocks and ten new awards, Battlefield 2142™: Northern Strike offers unprecedented persistence for a Booster Pack. The epic Titan mode introduced in Battlefield 2142™ is available on two maps, and for the first time in an urban setting. All maps also feature Conquest mode with the Conquest Assault Lines set-up, in which the attacking army now has to conquer all control points before taking the enemy’s main base.

|DICE not working on futuristic Battlefield "would lov... (3)|
|Lars Gustavsson of Swedish dev DICE confirms there's no 'Battlefield 2143' in the works at the studio, "but I would love to make it," he said. A lot of people "ran over and wanted to apply" for 2142.
The sci-fi nature of the futuristic Battlefield affords greater "creative freedom" as its not constrained by a "historical and contemporary" setting. The in-development Battlefield 4 is set in modern day.

|PC users "own set of requirements" not shunned in Bat... (5)|
|DICE understands PC gamer fears that Battlefield 3 will fall prey to 'consolization' what with it arriving for both Xbox 360 and PS3 too, but don't panic.
They know porting anything from consoles gets "flamed hard," as PC gamers "are more forgiving" of complexity. BF3 gets "special attention" on PC.
