Neowin has learnt that a ESRB ratings certificate issued for Electronic Art's upcoming Battlefield Bad Company 2 game, reveals an interesting piece of information about the first person shooter's storyline. If you don't wish to know anything about the game's storyline, stop reading now!
So what's the spoiler? According to the rating issued by the US and Canadian based Entertainment Software Ratings Board, the game is going to contain a World War II level before moving to the modern day. The summary, which can be found on the ESRB website, reads:
"In single-player mode, players conduct missions on an unnamed Japanese island during World War II and then move into the modern day through jungles, deserts, and snowy terrain."
Apart from that there is nothing special. The game will contain guns, gunshots and "large sprays of blood", as well as some profanity.
The inclusion of a World War II level may go some way to explaining the ability for Battlefield 1943 weapons to be used in Bad Company 2, which was revealed in the official Battlefield 1943 Twitter feed in July last year.
Kotaku muses that the inclusion of the level may also be a case of DICE and EA testing reaction to the possibility of another World War II based Battlefield.
