DICE to start the New Year off right
While the PC players of the recently released Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 were able to win the community challenge and complete the 69 million support actions, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players were still working toward getting the Operation Hastings map unlocked.
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will have to work no more, as DICE has unlocked the Operation Hastings map for both platforms, although they didn’t achieve the support actions goal. DICE claims that they chose to unlock the Operation Hastings map early, as they wanted to start the New Year off with a bang.
While no exact numbers have been released by either DICE or publisher Electronic Arts on how well the add-on pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 sold, whispers that we hear seem to indicate that sales have been a bit better than expected for the PC platform and a bit behind what they expected on the Xbox 360; and PlayStation 3 sales have lagged a bit.
Still, if you have not purchased the Vietnam add-on and you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed; we have spent a lot of time over the holiday playing it and we can tell you that it is well with it.
