43 million killed in 1943

The massacre that was Battlefield 1943‘s Coral Sea community challenge has ended today on Xbox Live with the 43 million kills racked up in just four days, the game’s official Twitter account informs us, meaning the $15 game that came with three maps is now a $15 game that comes with four maps. Also unlocked is a new Air Superiority mode but both it and the map could have easily been packed in with the game in the first place. So what exactly is it that everyone got out of this challenge? The joy of another countdown. And we are just learning to love them in this industry.
