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.

I remember videos for BF2 right before it came out and they showed content that wasn't there (grappling hooks and certain nighttime maps, etc) - a short time later they announced a booster pack at 30.00 a pop and it had this content that was mysteriously supposed to be in the original game....

This is the same thing. They will add in stuff for us to buy, but the problem will become the servers and the people that play - how do you do a rotation? Will people just be kicked when you go to the new maps and they don't have them?

oh well.

Everything at this point is mute considering the problems that are in the game that I am now considering play stoppers. I love the game to death, but my attention is now elsewhere until they unfu*k some of the problems.

Heavy Rain, Just Cause 1 and 2, God of War 3, Metro 2033, Bioshock 1 and 2, and the GTA4 addons shuold give them enough time....hopefully.

70 hours for a 40.00 game. Not bad. Just hope I can double that playtime after they fix it.
