Map Pack 7 arrives for download today
Finally, the waiting is over and DICE, in conjunction with Electronic Arts, has confirmed the date for the upcoming Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam add-on pack. While everyone knew the Vietnam add-on was in development for release before the end of the year, it is only known that the actual release date has been confirmed.
PC owners who have Battlefield Bad Company 2 will get a little ahead of the game with the news that the PC version of the Vietnam add-on will be available for purchase and download from both the EA Store and Steam on December 18th. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will have to wait till December 21st to be able to purchase and download the add-on for their platforms.
According to what our sources are confirming to us, the Vietnam add-on will go for $15 for PC and PlayStation 3 owners, while it will cost 1,200 Microsoft Points, or $15, for Xbox 360 owners.
In the meantime, while players eagerly await the release of the Vietnam add-on (which will add four new maps and period weapons and vehicles for players to experience), DICE is dropping Map Pack 7 later today; it will include two new maps, plus updated versions of Harvest Day and Oasis from the first Bad Company title.
Map Pack 7 will be offered free to those BFBC2 players who registered their VIP codes (which were included with each new purchase of BFBC2). Those who do not have a VIP code will be forced to purchase one to enjoy the new Map Pack 7 offerings as well as additional free DLC content.
