Bad Company 2 Vietnam Expansion & VIP Map Pack 7 Dated + Details


Finally the news I personally have been waiting for since it was announced back at this years E3. We finally have a firm release date on the Vietnam Expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Drum roll please…December 21st. Dice wasn’t kidding around when they said Winter 2010. The long awaited expansion will drop just as the season changes for xbox 360 and ps3 owners. If you are fortunate enough to be running the game from Steam you will be able to access the content on the 18th, three whole days prior to when I will be sinking my teeth into this multiplayer goodness.

If I was only getting this expansion come the 21st it would have been enough for me. But DICE being in the giving mood that they are going to be releasing VIP Map Pack 7 free of charge for persons with a VIP account that came with the game when you bought it new. Map Pack 7 will feature 4 never before seen maps on Bad Company 2. Two of the maps are fan favorites Harvest Day and Oasis from the original game, while the other two maps are all new to the series, and find their inspiration from two different locations in the games robust single player campaign. And all of this wonderful content will be hitting xbox live tomorrow, Dec. 1st.

When the VIP Map Pack 7 hits Live tomorrow it will not be alone. DICE will be releasing a patch in the games title update that will fix a large array of problems and provide support to some other well needed areas. Here is a complete list of all the patches that will be contained in the massive 2.6 GB update tomorrow.
