Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Announced

DICE announces Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, a multiplayer expansion for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 that will take the military shooter series back to the jungles of Vietnam when it is released later this year. The Battlefield Blog has a trailer from the expansion. Word is: "The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam digital expansion pack takes all of the intensity, action and addictive gameplay of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and ups the ante with enhanced persistence, new weapons, vehicles, unlocks, awards, achievements and trophies. Featuring four new maps playable in classic Battlefield modes including Conquest and Rush, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be available worldwide this winter for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC. Price will be announced at a later date." Here's the embedded trailer.

I just want to know if I can choose my own song to blast to other players while driving vehicles. That's all I ask. Oh, and a non dominant M60/LAW rocket kit.

"BC2 is dwindling at a record pace. Same maps, over and over and over. "

The problem I have with the maps, is that they are way too micro tailored. And we play the same few maps so much over and over ad-infinitum, that everyone knows exactly where everyone else is gonna be. Makes random encounters and tactics null and void pretty well.

As for jungle warfare, I absoluetly loved that in Vietcong etc. I just hope in this Nam experience, I don`t have to wait for ever and a day just to get an M16. Just gimme the freaking weaps and let`s play.

I was going to hope for a retail release, but now that I read about it seems like a map pack rather than an expansion, so who cares.

I just remembered....I grabbed 1943 for the xbox this week - and played for a couple hours. It is basically a dumbed down version of 1942 and looks like BF Heroes....

Glad I got it at 50% off. I will put 10.00 worth of time into it. Does bring back memories of greaet gameplay, to bad it is on a console. (wasn't it going to be released on pc?)

Same maps, over and over and over. I am playing on a sweet server with great competition that is well adminned too. So it's not a community issue.. people are just bored and need new content. Which is EASILY addressed by allowing us to make our own maps and mod as we see fit.

Word. Makes me miss games like UT2004. In-game modifiers, tons of maps and modes, user content galore and even back then had a decent stat tracking system.

My interest in logging into BC2 is dwindling at a record pace. Same maps, over and over and over. I am playing on a sweet server with great competition that is well adminned too.

I really hope the next big FPS that comes out (anyone know.. Brink maybe?) allows the community to make and host their own custom content.

Ugh. I hated the original BF:Vietnam. I don't like the jungle setting at all and the music really gets on my nerves. LOL sorry for all the hate! I loved all the other BF games, but I'll be passing on this expansion.

I liked it but I agree about jungle maps, they get old really quick.

It's nice to see this is going to be an expansion pack instead of just a new full price game as Activision would have likely done.

you mean like the original bf:v was?
Eh I would argue that the differences between 1942 and Vietnam were far more substantial than the differences between CoD4:MW and CoD4:MW2 (disregarding ancillary fuckovers like no-dedi, no mods, etc.)


True, 'nam brought us mobile spawns for the first time. The chopper and shovel were game-changers. I also miss working your own mortar.

I love all of the foliage they've put in the game in the jungle maps already. I wonder if they'll amp it up even more for 'Nam. Tho I also want to do one of the city maps with collapsible buildings.

This is a pleasant surprise. BFBC2 got boring pretty fast imo and I'd love to see an expansion pack like this use all or some of the old maps and put in all new weapons and vehicles. They have the jungle set established, anxious to see more.

Bout time we got a Nam game. But what about a sp campaign? 4 maps does blow tho. 6 to 8 would be better for sure.

I'm excited, but reservedly so. It all depends on how big this thing will be as well as price. I still would have preferred a stand alone title with nice sized solo campagin. Still, colour me stoked. Wathcing Hueys fly around to CCR always makes me giddy.

Reuse and possibly remix White Rabbit (again) for the menu music, or no care about this one
