" EA Announces Battlefield 1943 Community Challenge That Unlocks Additional Bonus Map “Coral Sea”
DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced that Battlefield 1943™ will kick off a worldwide community challenge that, when achieved, will reward players by unlocking a fourth map called Coral Sea. The WWII Coral Sea map will be unlocked when the multiplayer community achieves 43M kills on Xbox Live and the same number on PlayStation®Network. When it ships this summer, Battlefield 1943will include three maps (Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, and Wake Island) plus this fourth bonus map, all for $15.
Coral Sea is designed to showcase the intense battle in the skies, offering an all-new Air superiority game mode. The legendary WWII action this map provides will have players dog fighting in this airplanes-only map, proving once again DICE delivers on a first class online vehicle warfare experience better than anyone else! Players will be able to track the progress of their respective console communities at www.battlefield.com/1943 (http://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.battlefield.com%2F1943&esheet=5975465&lan=en_US&anchor=www.battlefield.com%2F1943&index=1)."

Sweet, we'd better make it to 43M kills before those guys at the PSN does it :P

Of course. There's no way the PS3 players will beat the 360 players to the kill count, if only due to the larger gamer base on the 360, we'll still beat them on it.

People from the PS3 have made their way to the 360, the reason? More noobs playing this game = more for them to kill and more experience to learn and more strategies. :D

So of course the 360 will get it first, and i'm glad for it to be coming this month, I have nothing better to do then stay and rape face on games. :D

So does the winning community get sole usage of the map?
Or does it simply unlock for both as soon as the winning community pops it.......basically just giving kudos to the winner but ultimately both consoles reaping the real reward of the free map?

Any clarifaction greatly appreciated.


EDIT : I just re-read it and it reads like both consoles get it but only after they have clocked up 43M kills....duhhh.
It is going to be xbox for sure......PSN just plain refuses to even accept my card details to add money......stupid lump of shit :confused:

I will be there, adding to the kills!

How long do people think it will take to get the 43m kills? I will definately be putting my fair share of kills into getting the map;)

In a recent interview one of the folks from DICE said they are anticipating 43 million kills to hit in about week or two. That's fast if you ask me. I wonder if trial version kills count as well. Anyway I'm saving my MSP for this one, 1200 is not a bad price for probably the most technologically advanced XBLA game ever.

25th or the 1st I have been hearing, no one knows and its frustrating lol.

06-22-2009, 09:42 AM

Will the players who buy the game after the 43million kills have been hit still get that map?
Im thinking of getting it after a while its been out, And dont want to get it after the kill mark has been reached and the map only unlocks for the people who conributed?
If so il probably go out on the streets and beg for money to get this :D
