Battlefield: Bad Company was originally released for consoles in 2008, and it packs the same first-person shooter combat that the franchise has become known for. Where previous entries in the series had focused on major multiplayer battles, however, Bad Company packed a full single-player campaign with a dose of humor.

Battlefield: Bad Company follows a wayward band of ordinary soldiers who decide that sometimes the gratitude of a nation just isn't enough. Featuring a dramatic storyline loaded with a unique attitude, the game delivers the series' trademark sandbox gameplay in a universe where almost everything is destructible.

The game was also the first to be built on EA DICE's Frostbite engine.

Battlefield: Bad Company joins its sequel, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 on the backward compatible list, and it is available through the Xbox Store for $14.99. However, if the game is already in your library, you can start playing it right away. And for more entries in the backward compatible catalog, be sure to check out our comprehensive list of titles.

  • still my favorite of all the Battlefield games.  The campaigh full of misfits, was fun, entertaining with great gameplay.  And the Multiplayer was some of the best around at that time.
  • I was waiting for this one, as I never played it. I loved the Bad Company 2 and I'll be playing this one as soon as I finish my current game. I would like to see the Bad Company back, I used to think they would bring them back as a DLC for Battlefield 3 and 4, if not a full game. No luck so far.
