The game will  become available on both the PlayStationStore and the Xbox Live Marketplace for about $15 (or 1200 Microsoft Points).

A PC version is also in the works, but its arrival has been scheduled for September.

Battlefield 1943 is an all-new multiplayer game that offers endless hours of 24-player action in popular maps inspired by Battlefield 1942, now updated with the Frostbite engine. The total destructibility afforded by the Frostbite engine ups the ante and leaves players with nowhere to hide.

“Using the same Frostbite engine that we developed for Battlefield: Bad Company, we are able to take players back to WWII and return to the roots of the Battlefield franchise, but with a new twist– destruction,” said Gordon Van Dyke, Producer on Battlefield 1943.“We want to offer gamers the most accessible online shooter experience and the best value found in any premium download title with Battlefield 1943.”

In Battlefield 1943, players will play as either US Marines or the Imperial Japanese Navy and fight for victory at Wake Island, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima.
