Though EA has been so tight-lipped about the status of the Windows edition of Battlefield 1943
that it raised concerns the game would never be released for PC, the EA Store
is now offering the game via digital distribution
. Here's word on the game: "It's time to do your part in the action packed battles of the World War II Pacific campaign! Pick your path - be it as a rifleman crawling the trenches, a steel fisted tank commander, or ace fighter pilot dog fighting to protect the skies. Play as a lone wolf or with your friends, coordinating to turn the tide of battle. Whatever you choose, you get to enjoy the thrill of a fully featured online shooter with the unique Battlefield gameplay." Thanks Matt. Update:
Unfortunately, this all seems to be some sort of mix-up. Here's a tweet from EA
explaining: "BF 1943 PC is not available. This is an error on EA store. We are working to sort it out."
