Last week, EA and DICE’s Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2 became backwards compatible on Xbox One. This week, they have now been added to the EA Access Vault, allowing those with a subscription to download and play two of the best Battlefield titles.
While combat is limited to 12v12 gun battles for the most part, this is more suited to Bad Company 2 which was built with consoles in mind. This is represented by the fantastic map design, which catered to the then refreshing mode of Rush. Nowadays, modern Battlefield titles feature more open maps, ideally suited for Conquest gameplay.

I’ll consider hopping onto Bad Company 2 this Sunday if it means catching up with some of our fans, so let me know if you’re interested in doing that. It’s been a while, but hopefully I’ll still be able to hit choppers with my tracer darts to aid rocket troopers! Oh the good old days. These were a blast.
As for Battlefield 3? Well the series started to get a lot faster in its gameplay from here on in, but if you play Battlefield these days, you should adjust rather quickly. The maps are also very well made, including Damavand Peak, which saw the attacking team having to base jump from one objective to the other. Simply stunning to see. Maybe it didn’t age well, I’m now sure. I’ll give it a look at least!
