DICE: Free Maps "Crucial"

Computer and Video Games has word from DICE senior producer Patrick Bach that DICE had "generous" amounts of DLC planned for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, saying: "we don't ever want to charge for our maps." He says they "insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial when it came to keeping our community happy and playing together," adding, "We're owned by EA but we're still very much DICE." A free VIP map pack for Bad Company 2 was released yesterday, as sales got underway for the Xbox 360 edition of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 stimulus package, which was $15.00 USD.

Free Maps? I logged in today expecting to have to download something but it was in there all ready to go. These maps were in the game prior to now this just unlocked them. Would be as if MW2 kept some maps unplayable in certain game modes then one day turned them on in that game mode and called them "free maps". And they aren't free to people who buy used so those guys don't get to play together with other for "free".

This is a clever way to operate however. But calling this free content and comparing it to something that is DLC everyone pays for is misleading to say the least.
