The first week of March brings a ton of PC games to fans including a first person shooter, a sci-fi RTS sequel and a WWII naval sim game:
Battlefield Bad Company 2
: While the first game in the first person shooter series skipped the PC, developer Digital Illusions
is making up for that by giving the PC port for the sequel a lot of unique features compared to the consoles. Up to 32 players in multiplayer? Check. Dedicated servers? Check. DirectX 11 support? Check. Will this game be the Modern Warfare 2
killer? Stay tuned.
