Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Patched

A post by DICE's Barry Tingle to the Electronic Arts UK Community Forums has word that the latest patch for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is now available, albeit a day later than planned. The patch is version 522175, though there is room for confusion here, as word is: "522175 is merely a re-packaging of the datafiles from 522174. Therefore, version 522175 reports itself as 522175 in the auto-patcher, but does still say "522174" in the game's splash screen." They also say the version for Steam "will launch later, possibly tomorrow, as it needs to go through extra QA before it goes live on Steam." The change list follows.

Single Player -
Fixed: Graphical issues on some systems on SP_03 (at start and when displaying background mountains at “Up river”)
Fixed: Character voice issue during cut scenes in SP_03b (only affected Spanish)
Fixed: Hang when killed using TOW Launchers in SP_05
Fixed: Graphical issue on some systems on SP_05 (displaying background mountains)
Fixed: Voice volume in cut scenes on SP_06

Some of the issues on that list are seemingly quick fixes, like the scoreboard overlapping, the MG shield and other weapon center issues, UAV inversion, the end of round horn annoyance. Compared to this fix list which has like...1 gameplay fix, and everything else interface related (multiplayer wise).

Yeah if you are a BF fan, it's probably worth it.

I've got 40 hours in multiplayer and I'm not bored of it yet, it's not Battlefield 3 but it's a good shooter, the destruction stuff adds a fun twist to the feeling of being in a war torn situation.

They're slowly releasing new maps for the game which should help out, right now there's only about 4 maps with dual game modes (the main ones, conquest and rush).

It's not as much of a grind as Battlefield 2 was to unlock stuff, though most of the lower tier weapons are better than the ones you unlock at higher ranks.

The single player was fun but more of a throw in bonus compared to the multiplayer.

Is this worth picking up? I haven't played much of any MP game in months, and I hear the SP is short and not worth it for SP alone. How is the MP compared to BF2? Aren't the maps smaller and more like CoD? I never really could get into CoD style MP.

Gamestop still has the limited edition and are offering $10 off, a $10 gift card and free 2-day shipping when ordering online.

Change: Displays version number on Front End Legal Screen

I guess they already need to release a patch for the patch.
