For those who are not familiar with the title, BF2 is a action based modern combat game. It features weapons, vehicles, and armies that exist in the real world. It's also one of the most popular multi-player games currently on the market.

Just recently, I bought the expansion pack "Special Forces". While flipping though the manual (yeah, I'm one of those people that DOES RTFM) I came across something that twigged me a little.

Quote (page 6): "With Authentic Special Forces firearms, a full arsenal of technologically advanced gadgets, and night-fighting stealth tactics, the covert armies give you even more weapons in your fight for the new world order."

This set me to thinking about some of the featured aspects of the game. It's predominately based on USMC forces battling it out with China and a group called the "MEC" (Middle Eastern Coalition, a stereo-typical "terrorist" analog). The expansion pack has added Britain to the fight against these "evil" forces and have added Russia and "Insurrectionists" as new "bady guys". Interestingly enough, many of the maps involve Russia fighting a unnamed "Rebel" faction (as opposed to the "insurrectionists" that the British and US face).
Locals that the game takes place in are widely varied, portraying the home nations of every country EXCEPT for Britain and the US. All battles are fought on "Enemy" soil.

So with all this in mind, I ask you, does this sound just a little ominous? It IS just a game, but everyone knows that desensitization is the first step towards making something acceptable.

Oh, one final note of interest; There is a disproportionately large number of H&K weapons featured in the game. Enough to make eyebrows raise and wonder if there was some product placement involved.

Maybe not, but who knows?

Some years ago, maybe 10 or so, the "fashion" in war games was the "(NATO/ONU/any aliance) fighting the bad guys, the bad guys being some third World country or faction".

So maybe they know the right people...

you know, every time someone refers to a change in the way the various countries operate with eachother, it is not a reference to some imaginary 3,000 year old plan for world dominance.

when russia and the US started to open their doors to eachother it was a new world order.

when the next world war ends, assuming there are a few folks left to restart civilization, they will refer to the new world order.

it's an expression, not a centuries old plot

Interesting post, there was a game called Americas Army which they released free. I have never played it but i heard that in that game you fight the american militia-men, which is interesteing.

Regaring the actual plan, there are three major unions, the european u, the american or pan-american u, and the asian pacific u.

The game suggests China is the country they will use to gain control in the asia-pacific union.

Russia is interesting, maybe they wont play ball, so they are gonna try and start a revolution there to take control. That would be the rebels

Regards

That is one sweet game buddy, the specops H&K unlock is amazing.

You will also notice the number of the stock maps that take place in and around oil resources.

whats interesting is that the battles occur on every place on earth,
except the us and the uk.

"war is ok and you shouldn't try to stop it,
because you won't have to ever see it first hand"

nevertheless should be a kick ass game

Maybe it just put the NWO in that part, really trying to say since it is based on modern combat, about the advanced spec ops fighting, and not really anything to do with this NWO movement. Also since really no fighting has occured in the UK or US in actual cities in it, also since terrosists dont actually attack countries, they just sneak some in and blow stuff up, if they can. And the H&K guns in here, why is that anything weird? Most are new weapons so I don't see why you had to bring that up, the weapons in the game are real, it's not a fictionally based game, so I don't know, maybe just coincidence that they put NWO in that part.

ok i know this isnt the answer to your qesution but im going to be the devils advocite. in modern times where are we fighting??... asia. special forces are fighting in asia also. if we had a US map it would be. stop the terriost from blowing up this, hijacking this, and theres only a group of terriost at a time. we make raids here and there but nothing like enemy tanks running around in the usa. ok done with the devils adovicate. i agree with you to an extent. i think ea was just trying to maek a great game and also if you think comand and conquer genrals was a NWO game then you would agree this one is. C&C:G-teams, USA, China, and the gla(global liberation army, BF2 teams(w/o expansion) USMC, MEC(middle eastern conflict),China look alota like. both made by ea and all.

And amusing update to the old thread...

It turns out that the second scedualed "booster pack" for BF2 will be taking place on American soil. It's sort of an "out there" idea to suggest that this could be part of the desensitzation campaign that is talked about in connection to the NWO, but then again... isn't this the place to bring "out there" ideas in for inspection?

Also of interest: Hot on the heels of BF2 is coming BF2142 which has an interesting future-tech angle on it as well as being backed by a plausable eco-disaster storyline.

Prophetic sybolism, or just a cool looking game?
Who knows... but could be fun either way.
