  • The Battlefield 2 Stealth pack expands the stealth and strategic elements of Battlefield 2 by introducing new characters and new features Of the many features we’ve envisioned for this pack, at the core is a new character class, the agent. The agent, is a unit that is pure stealth, performing a variety of missions that are both combative and strategic in nature. Think Sam Fisher or Solid Snake in Battlefield 2. The agent is a lightly armored, fast moving, stealth soldier who moves swiftly across the battlefield, not only killing enemies, but accomplishing class specific missions that benefit his entire team. … A new class, for a new style of combat, the agent brings many new features that greatly expand the diversity of combat occuring on the battlefield. In the screen above is a concept model of the agent, the arrow pointing to the right is an image of the agent moving at high speed in stealth mode. To the left is an agent who has just fired his weapon, thus becoming completely opaque. This highlights one of the agents key features their camoflauge… The agent is a character with a unique arsenal, unique attributes, and class specific objectives, is a character that will surely lure many more to the already extremely popular battlefield 2 comes equipped with a unique arsenal And features that allow them to persue covert missions
  • Speed makes you visible, Yes but you run fast! (the above screenshot is exaggerated to highlight this point) The agent can also jump further then normal units -Can Climb some structures (like the Special Infected in Left 4 Dead) -dangle off the sides of buildings. -and double jump To retain gameplay balance, the Agent’s armor is decreased to compensate
  • The heart and soul of the agent’s combat system melee…
  • Now When Ever this tank respawns it appears on all team members radar
  • Battlefield 2 "Stealth Pack" Proposed Expansion Pack Presentation

    1. 5. High Concept: The Battlefield 2 Stealth pack expands the strategic elements of Battlefield 2 by introducing a unique new character to the battle: the Agent. The Agent is a unit that is pure stealth, performing a variety of missions that are both combative and strategic in nature.
    2. 6. Features <ul><li>Active Camo </li></ul>
    3. 7. <ul><li>Enhanced Agility </li></ul>This exaggerated screenshot serves to demonstrate the increased speed and acrobatic abilities available to the agent, such as the double-jump. These come at the cost of decreased armor, contributing to balanced gameplay.
    4. 8. <ul><li>Melee Abilities </li></ul>The agent’s devastating close combat skills allow him to immobilize or kill his foes with powerful martial arts techniques and deadly throwing knives
    5. 9. <ul><li>Weapons </li></ul>In addition to his devastating melee attacks, the agent is initially equipped with a high powered silenced pistol; his kit upgrade would include a crossbow.
    6. 10. <ul><li>Secondary Equipment </li></ul>
    7. 11. AGENTS MISSIONS <ul><li>OVERVIEW </li></ul><ul><li>Unlike other character classes, the Agent class is tasked with completing “special missions” that are not directly related to the result of the battle, but benefit the team as a whole. </li></ul><ul><li>These special missions allow the Agent to maintain his individuality while directly contributing to the squad combat and teamwork environment so central to Battlefield 2’s gameplay experience. </li></ul>
    8. 19. Agent’s impact on gameplay: <ul><li>The Agent exists to stimulate gameplay on a more strategic basis by providing the player with a wider range of opportunities and features. He opens up the game to the stealth genre audience and augments the existing gameplay for the classic Action & FPS gamer. </li></ul>
    9. 20. UNIQUE STEALTH PACK LEVELS: D.C. METRO STEALTH PACK: MAPS Sea Shadow Washington D.C. Area 51
    10. 21. SU-37 RAH-66 COMANCHE C130 & AC130 Specter Gunship TOP SECRET : AURORA
    12. 23. THE STEALTH PACK ADDITIONAL AWESOME FEATURES: TAKE DOWN ABILITY The Agent kit would be provided with a new ability whereby when one or more teammates stack up behind the character, a visual cue would appear on the screen, allowing the player to hit a certain key and throw a flash-bang into the room. At this point the Agent and his teammate(s) would rush in automatically and kill all enemies not behind cover. The number of enemies killed cannot exceed the number of teammates performing the Take Down. This mechanic has been demonstrated in Novalogic’s Black Hawk Down . BLACK OPS This voted upon character class would be selected in the same way as a commander. He would essentially be a Covert Ops super soldier – a true Delta operator – and reinforce the individualism and ranking systems inherent in BF2. MISC While we have many more ideas, what we have presented here constitutes the core of the pack, and is scalable to include more or less if the Stealth Pack is considered for development.
    13. 24. STEALTH PACK PRECEDENT Secret Weapons of WWII was an expansion of Battlefield 1942’s game play mechanics which maintained the game’s inherent balance and appeal. In the same way, The Stealth Pack will expand playability and appeal, adding new game mechanics without disrupting the original balance and gameplay dynamics of Battlefield 2. © The ideas expressed in this power-point presentation are copyright 2006 by Tyler Friddle, Tom Lewis, Jamie Vann, and Hans Vancol
