Until ''Battlefield: Bad Company'', all games in the series used the Refractor engine, developed by Refraction Games for use in their video game ''Codename Eagle'' (DICE later bought out Refraction Games). After that, DICE switched to using Frostbite Engine (which they also developed), though some of the spin-off still use Refractor.

->''"Honor. Faith. Land. Oil. Wars are fought for any number of reasons. But on the [[TitleDrop battlefield]], every soldier has to find his own. As things turned out, [[TheSquad me and my buddies]] found a pretty interesting one..."''
-->'''-- Preston Marlowe''', ''Battlefield: Bad Company''

A series of FirstPersonShooter games by DICE (Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment, based out of Sweden), with help from Creator/ElectronicArts and other associated studios. It is DICE's major franchise. Apart from this series, the only other games DICE has released recently are ''VideoGame/MirrorsEdge'', and the multi-player aspect of the recent modern-set ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' reboot.

These games are notable for being [[TropeCodifier among the first]] to make large-scale use of mobile vehicles in an FPS game, as well as using large maps. The games are designed to be played in multi-player mode. The earlier games had no 'single-player' campaign, only multi-player missions with bots. For games set in 'reality' these maps and missions recreated important battles in ''1942'' and ''Vietnam''. ''Bad Company'', however, changed this, coming with not only a cohesive, new storyline, but a group of notable characters that stuck with you the entire game, with their own distinct personalities and voices.

Due to its {{Abandonware}} status, ''Battlefield 2'' and ''2142'' are not sold or online anymore, however the folks from [[https://bl2142.co/ Revive Project]] had provided a modified version of the two games for free and also running small but growing group of servers. Playing with bots and mods are still possible though.

* RecurringRiff: Most of the games in the Battlefield series base their Main Theme around the Theme of ''Battlefield 1942'', but each has their own unique genres that fit the individual games' theme. The singleplayer campaign trailer for Battlefield 1 even mixes the main theme's beat into the otherwise unrelated trailer song, Suns and Stars.
