DICE's downloadable multiplayer-only shooter Battlefield 1943 launched today on the Xbox 360, as celebrated by this swanky brand new launch trailer, though it's been a rough landing.
"Good news, the game is incredibly successful beyond even my expectations," writes producer Gordon Van Dyke in a forum post. "We have reached server capacity, but the bad news about this now [means] some people can't join unless someone leaves."
More servers are currently being added to resolve the issue, and in preparation for the PlayStation 3 launch of the game tomorrow. A PC release is due in September but for now you can view lots of screenshots to see in our gallery.
In other BF news, Battlefield Heroes came out of beta last week!

|I think they must have fixed the server issues by the time the ps3 version was released. I got on to servers no problem. Classy game. Nice graphics. Suicide jeeps are much easier than '42 as the dynamite actually sticks to stuff. It's pleasant driving around in a tank at the moment as there aren't that may good pilots. Good fun Nostalgia overload...|
