EA’s just announced a new expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which sees a new location: Vietnam.

Revealed during its E3 press event, BFBC2′s first multiplayer Expansion Pack will allow players to fight as either a U.S. Marine or a North Vietnamese solider.

Be prepared to run through the jungle, we reckon.

Looks like there will loads of air invasions, guerrilla warfare, and of course, loads of trees in a hot humid environment.

No word on the inclusion of Agent Orange or not.

The expansion will be made available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this winter. Pricing to still be determined.

Check out the announce trailer below.

    Expansion pack as in DLC for BC2? I guess thats more acceptable. The idea sounds pretty lame though, and its hard not to point the copy-cat finger with Black-Ops just round the corner.

    @4 Pathetic that you must clean toilets mister.

    Battlefield Vietnam was fantastic, hopefully this will be too.

    Wow, someone should really cut off the internet access in the Latvian looney bin…

    BF is a load of crap. Trying to copy CoD just as usual. They have zero originality, whatsoever.

    G1GA, I know you love trolling Bad Company stuff, but since when has CoD been a Vietnam game?

    Anyhow, I’ll be over here playing games that don’t have a multiplayer amongst the 5 worst ever made.

    Hopefully some interesting DLC here. Hopefully far better than some copy paste jobs and map design by numbers to go with my-first-FPS version 6.

    Black Ops is clearly set in Vietnam (or a significant part of, at least), DUFFKING. This is obviously some sort of desperate attempt to join the party.

    #12 5 years ago
  13. DUFFKING

    You have to be joking mate, Battlefield Vietnam came out on the PC a few years ago 0_o

    #13 5 years ago
  14. Whizzo

    2004 to be precise.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. G1GAHURTZ

    So?

    I don’t see any reason why they’d change their blatant desire to push themselves as a CoD alternative, which is why they’re doing this.

    At the end of the day, millions of people are probably going to be playing Black Ops online when it gets released. So when that happens, BC2 is still going to be a year old game with probably a whole lot less players online, if you go by the patterns on the XBL rankings for example.

    I’m not saying that they didn’t do Vietnam before, but I’m saying that they’re only re-visiting it in order to keep up with the competition.

    #15 5 years ago
  16. Whizzo

    Or perhaps DICE thought it would be a good idea to revisit something people have been asking for years!

    #16 5 years ago
  17. Erthazus

    @15 Yeah right Toilet Washer, no one plays Modern Warfare on PC now so go troll somewhere else please.

    #17 5 years ago
  18. G1GAHURTZ

    @16: So you think it’s just a genuine coincidence then?

    They’re not trying to take any potential CoD:BO customers away, and they’re not bothered with CoD:BO at all?

    #18 5 years ago
  19. G1GAHURTZ

    Shut up Erthazus, you idiot.

    #19 5 years ago
  20. LordCancer

    I like Vietnam, brings out the best in us… lol what can I get for five dolla? anyting u want.

    #20 5 years ago
  21. Whizzo

    Yes everything DICE does is because of the Call of Duty series.

    Or not.

    #21 5 years ago
  22. G1GAHURTZ

    You didn’t answer my question.

    #22 5 years ago
  23. Erthazus

    @19 Toilet Washer, stop being so mad about the thing that Battlefield games are much deeper, with 32 players on PC (24 on consoles) with destruction, vehicles and much better graphics.

    and it’s not a coincidence, it’s not like they started developing after the announcement. Vietnam was a Battlefield game long ago. So i don’t see how Toilet washer is so pissed about.

    Setting is setting. Who will have better game wins. But after the campaign level of Black Ops at Microsoft Press conference, i have no doubt that even Medal Of Honor (that in my opinion have better graphics, but worse feel then MW2 gameplay) will be better. But Battlefield:BC 2.. He he.. Whine as much as you want Toilet Washer ;) i will play a great game this year.

    #23 5 years ago
  24. Whizzo

    No I don’t think DICE have done this because of a game that was announced relatively recently when work was almost certainly in production for this expansion.

    You DARE not answer GIGAHURTZ’S question? Know you’re place people!

    #25 5 years ago
  26. G1GAHURTZ

    You’re extremely naïve then.

    Anyway, what details do you have on exactly when work was started on this DLC, bearing in mind that we’ve known about BO being in Vietnam for a good while now? In fact, when is this DLC due for release?

    #26 5 years ago
  27. G1GAHURTZ

    Hey Erthazus, I would ask you if you were involved in this, but there’s probably no way a sad retard like you could ever get a wife.

    Going a tad bit out of line here, aren’t we?

    #29 5 years ago
  30. Erthazus

    @25 He is just a toilet washer and creator of DRIV3R. He likes to make shitty games also.

    @26 “You’re extremely naïve then.”

    and you are a toilet washer ;)

    “if you were involved in this”

    sure and i’m a winner. Next question?

    #30 5 years ago
  31. G1GAHURTZ

    @28: And calling me a “Toilet Washer” is perfectly fine is it?

    @ Whizzo: Oh dear!

    Yet ANOTHER coincidence!

    Winter 2010. Around about the same time as CoD:BO is due out…

    What a big surprise!

    Or not.

    #31 5 years ago

    Like I said. I seriously doubt that any woman is going to marry a sad retard like you.

    why do 9 out of 10 comment wars on this site involve GIGAHERTZ?

    @32 Ok, you done trolling Mr, Toilet washer? Ok, we all got it, you don’t like Battlefield:Bad company 2 series. OK.

    EA is ripping off everybody. We got that.

    Now go troll and praise Black Ops somewhere else, i’m here for the full information about Battlefield Vietnam game because it’s going to be a blast.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. Whizzo

    Yes you’re right about everything, it’s all a big plot to take customers away from the next Call of Duty, how could I have been so stupid. I apologise for not being a member of the Cult of Duty and not realising this.

    I have always found it interesting how trends in games seemingly hit “independent” of each other.

    @33: Find me 3 people I’ve had a “comment war” in the last 6 months or shut up.

    Fool

    Erthazus, you’re a complete retard and a you have no life. Interesting how you get so upset when people act exactly like you. Seems you can’t stand your own style of behaviour!

    LOL!!!

    @35: It’s the lowest form of wit, and I’ll take that as an admission of being wrong.

    Thanks.

    Wow, you really are thick. Don’t make a comment on a sentence that you don’t understand, because you’ll only end up making yourself look stupid.

  42. DeSpiritusBellum

    It’s hardly a conspiracy to challenge a competing company on a section of turf. The basic reason for Bad Company has always been to provide an EA alternative to CoD. It’s not as if EA haven’t blatantly admitted it. Basically 70% of their press releases feature the word Activision or “competitors”.

    That being said, I don’t see why they’re surprised their games aren’t selling better. When all you do is follow the leader, what you end up with is never going to be any better.

  44. fearmonkey

    cmon people, cant we just get along :)
    After all, we all know that both COD and Battlefield series suck equaly.

    Halo Sucks
    Xbox 360 Sucks
    PS3 sucks
    Blu-ray sucks
    HDDVD sucks

    everyone and everything sucks, at least according to all the damn fanboys.

    I’ll say this though, I watched that trailer for BF, and it looks EXACTLY like COD MW2. Sorry Erthazus, but it does.
    Of course, that’s to be expected as the COD is essentially king of the modern combat games, at least in sales.
    I don’t care for either game that much, though i feel infinity ward made the better COD games by far.

    #44 5 years ago
  45. G1GAHURTZ

    @43:

    Why not just admit you’re wrong instead of being such an utter retard?

    You’re just a typical backwards BF fanboy with nothing intelligent to say.

    Toilet washer…k’nhell what a shit stigma to throw at someone. no pun intended.

    I like toilet washer, he is so awesome. Interesting if he was excited about that gameplay footage of Black Ops at Microsoft E3 Press Conference. He he… :D

    #47 5 years ago
  48. G1GAHURTZ

    The guy is mental.

    He lives in a world of make believe and just makes stuff up as he goes along.

    EDIT: Point proven above.

    #48 5 years ago
  49. Erthazus

    So you are excited? XD Ahahaha.

    #49 5 years ago
  50. daytripper

    to be fair erthazus i’ve noticed you be a cowardly twat at times to people who dont deserve it, the recent killzone thread, mass effect you come across as a patronising little upstart to anyone who likes it and correct me if i’m wrong halo (apologises if i’m wrong) so i think the whole outburst from you and others at GIGA is a bit hypocritical. sorry but i feel it needs to be said to you.

    saying all that i think the DLC looks super and will be buying.

    Lets rise to the challenge and all make intelligent comments only please people.

    Like highly intellectual comment #4.

    The comments here are classic LMAO!

    @51:

    Wow. The mind of a troll is such a revealing place.

    1. You’re a hypocrite, who wants to talk about ‘xenophobia’, but remains quiet on ‘homophobia’.
    2. You LIE about 9/10 “comment wars”, and so obviously can’t even bring me a single link to back up your lie.
    3. You’re obviously just another BF fanboy who gets upset when people talk about the game, because you’re that weak minded and shallow.
    4. You pretend to have a genuine point, but in fact, all you want to do is get me to stop commenting on BF, which at the end of the day is nothing less than…

    Pathetic.

    @53 could you stop commenting please as i fear i might get furious in the next 1.37 minutes? cheers

    I’m going to say bullied at school, strict stepfather, weak mother, and probably interfered with by a male family friend while on camp. Textbook.

    Really?

    All that stuff happened to you?

    Shame…

    No wonder you’re such a retard.

  57. sg1974

    Bingo! Confirmation in response received from subject.

    #57 5 years ago
  58. G1GAHURTZ

    So that’s why you get so upset when all I said was that DICE were copying CoD:BO!

    You should get counselling then, instead of relying on BF to make you feel better.

    Fool.

    I’ve never played BF nor did I argue with or get upset at the copying point. You must have me confused with someone else.

    #60 5 years ago
  61. DrDamn

    Couple of comments about the story. Yes it is a little bit off given this is where CoD is going this year, however it isn’t a shock to those who follow the battlefield series. Fans have been screaming for this for some time. Personally as a fan of BFBC2 I don’t think this is such a great idea. The engine doesn’t do jungle very well, it gets too messy.

    We are also up to 60 odd comments and no one has mentioned the whole “we won’t charge for map packs” thing? Ok it’s not just a map pack, but surely the same reasons for not charging for a map pack still apply here? Unless it is a very extensive amount of DLC.

    #61 5 years ago
  62. G1GAHURTZ

    @60:

    Oh, so you were just trolling then?

    Who cares. You’re still a hypocriye (point 1) a liar (point 2) and have no genuine comment to make (point 4).

    I see you didn’t deny any of those! LOL!!!

    #62 5 years ago
  63. sg1974

    I refer you to comment #4.

    #63 5 years ago
  64. G1GAHURTZ

    @DD: I don’t think that there are any details for this are there? All there is is a title, a teaser and a rough date for release.

    Have they mentioned that they intend to charge?

    #64 5 years ago
  65. G1GAHURTZ

    @63:

    I refer you to comment #53.

    #65 5 years ago
  66. DrDamn

    @64
    No pricing info, but I can’t see it being free. The free stuff has been reuse of existing maps in different modes so far. This gets around the free promise by being an ‘expansion pack’.

    #66 5 years ago
  67. OlderGamer

    Sad.

    Well it is. And I am not talking about the game.
