DICE has announced it’ll be showing Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam in full for first time in Tokyo next week.

The Swedish developer said on its blog it was heading out to show the shooter’s expansion.

Vietnam was announced at E3, and will feature four new maps as well as weapons, vehicles and unlocks that are Vietnam-specific, as well as new Achievements and Trophies.

It’s due out by the end of the year for PSN, Xbox Live and PC.

    @6 There are already free maps on the BFBC2.

    What is bad in making an expansion pack with different campaign and multiplayer (skin)?
    It depends on how much it will cost. If it will cost like a 60$ game than you can buy just the original and stick with it or you can buy Vietnam if you like Vietnam setting more.

    They were right, they arent charging for extra maps. Because they didnt make any extra maps, they just had 2 which were already locked away on the disc then gave them more modes over time.

    @7 i don’t think there will be a campaign included as the newspost says: will feature four new maps as well as weapons, vehicles and unlocks that are Vietnam-specific, as well as new Achievements and Trophies.
    Nothing about a campaign if there is a campaign then i’ll take my statement back

    otherwise my statement is correct :)

    + there aren’t any free maps on BC2 they only opened up new modes on maps that were already on the disc ==> i don’t call that new maps.

    and beceause they already did a battlefield vietnam i don’t thnk they’ll have that much work bringing those vehicles and weapons to a high definition world

    “There are already free maps on the BFBC2″

    orly? then maybe I missed them. The only thing DICE and EA released since the release was Onslaught, which was a terribly expensive joke. Still EA fanbois laugh at CoD Players, why? I don’t know, I they’re also screwd, but with less content.

    1@ Maybe because of the Vietnam part? It makes sense for them to reveal more from it in Japan …

    I am a BFBC2 fan, but this game holds zero interest for me. To be honest I don’t have a lot of interest for any FPS beyond, possibly Halo Reach.

    Just too many FPS games out there right now, and so many of them feel like they are trying to be the same game and offer the same gaming experience.

    In a word, burnt out. Ok two words.

    This is why I play BFBC over MW2, MW is pushed out every year like clock work and loses it zigg or whatever you want to call it, but BFBC dedicat themselves to increase there product longevity. •_• Know singleplayer love WTF

    I dont know how anybody can get burnt out on any kinda game at all. True, not worth a full price since there are other FPS’ out there BUT its still worth a play through of some sorts i think. Maybe $20 at most but im hoping for a $15 price tag…you know, since its really only an expansion.

    Todays FPS games remind me alot of the old 2D shooters of yesteryear. In that when you got the store shelfs they are covered with FPS games. And many if not most of todays big name games are FPS. they are everywhere you look.

    It used to be like that with 2D shooters. Be it Gradius, R-Types, Darius at the arcades or on the home consoles. And be it top down or side scroling the idea and the gameplay mechanics where petty much the same.

    FPS games are like that. If you played one or two, you can jump into just about any of them and hit the ground running. Like oldschool shumps they come in several flavors and a few have slight tweaks(weapons, jet packs, vehicals, classes, etc). But each time one game does something that works, like classes or perks/kits it isn’t long before most of them do it.

    In the end the backdrops/setting change, the stories almost never matter, but do change, and the size, shape, and color of the hand holding the gun changes. But the core experience really doesn’t change. That isn’t somesort of fatel flaw with the genere, just an observation.

    FPS games seem to come in Sfi/space or WarSim or Horror. Some try and favor a strong story, some are fast paced, some are tactical. Some are team focused. Most are aimed at Online MP. And most try and pimp DLC like map packs.

    But in the end, past most of the window dressing it is the same experience. Run, jump, dodge, shoot, die, respawn, and do it again.

    So personialy, I find my fav one(or two), and ignore the rest.

    And that is why I feel burnt out on them. Your right tho, if the price of the new game/expansion is low enough I might be tempted, maybe. But I doubt it, I tend to enjoy the MP aspects the most anyways. I am feeling that the bulk of the content will be SP, with a few new maps for MP.
