DICE’s Patrick Bach, senior producer for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, has revealed a bit more of what to expect with DLC once the game is released next month.

Turns out, the game will come with a “VIP” code allowing the purchaser access to the DLC network.

“We want people to insert the code they get when they buy the game to get access to DLC,” he told MTV. “It’s connected to your personal account, more or less, and what we want to do is give you something extra, added value, for that.

“In the future you will get more content, for free, if you have this VIP code.”

Reiterating what he told WorthPlaying last week, Bach compared it to the Cerberus System in Mass Effect 2, where once you enter the code, you are granted access to game’s online store which is directly connected to your account.

New multiplayer maps are the free DLC that will be available at launch, and if you happen to buy the game used – expect Project Ten Dollar to be applied upon downloading the content.

Game hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 March 2 and March 5 in the US and UK, respectively.
