Battlefield: Bad Company 2 players, DICE has got some great news for you: two new maps will be available for download March 30th. Better still, if you are a VIP, these maps are free. Here’s the lowdown, straight from the Battlefield Blog:
Arica Harbor Conquest mode – US Command launches a break through action directly at the Russian base. Collateral damage is of no consequence. Capture and secure tactical positions in Conquest Mode across the vast Arica Harbor map.
Laguna Presa Rush mode – The valley and surrounding mountains possess a strategic value in the battle for South America, and an infantry assault supported by light armor vehicles is likely by both armies as US forces defend the nearby Dam.
VIP Map Pack 2
Every new copy of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 comes packed with a VIP code. Gamers who landed a used copy of Bad Company 2 can purchase a code through the in-game store for $15.
Now, the attentive readers out there can’t have missed the significance of the release date for the new maps. That’s right, Modern Warfare 2’s Stimulus Pack is releasing the same day (though only on Xbox 360). While pricing on the Stimulus Pack has yet to be announced, DICE’s KM Troedsson would like to point out that, by offering free maps, Battlefield is,” contradicting the industry standard and what our direct competitors are doing.”
So there you have it. Battlefield has been getting some great reviews. Free new maps are just icing on the cake. When the day comes, will you be joining the Bad Company, or will you continue to engage in Modern Warfare?
