Battlefield Returns to World War II Today With Battlefield 1943 on Xbox One

Battlefield 1943 xbox one backward compatibility

Only one game is coming today via Xbox One Backward Compatibility, but it’s a good one. Jump back into Battlefield 1943 almost ten years after it released.

And yep, Battlefield 1943 also enters the EA Access vault today.

No mention of Xbox One X enhancements so expect the same 720p/30fps it launched with. It won’t be a looker or play as smooth as most Battlefield games, but damn if the gameplay isn’t a blast.

Let’s take a trip back to 2009 and watch the Battlefield 1943 trailer. And enjoy that excellent classic Battlefield music.

Hell, let’s do it one more time with a look at Wake Island.

There’s nothing quite like the classic Battlefield theme.

Battlefield 1943 won’t be the only World War II Battlefield game coming to Xbox One this year. EA/DICE revealed Battlefield V yesterday, and the trailer was stunning.

I thought some of that animation looked a little too smooth, but after watching JackFrags video on all the different changes coming, I can’t wait. Seriously, watch his video. Some folks in the press and YouTube were treated to a three hour behind the scene look at Battlefield V. What they are saying about it sounds insane. And makes you wonder why yesterday’s Battlefield V reveal didn’t include more of that info.
