Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion dated

The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion releases at the EA Store and Steam on December 18 for PC

An interview with financial news source Bloomberg sheds light on just how dire EA's situation is following a rash of acquisitions. Here are the top three quotes from EA CEO John Riccitiello to Bloomberg.

The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion releases at the EA Store and Steam on December 18 for PC. Later in the week (December 21), it releases on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network. The PC version releases on other digital distribution channels (Impulse, GamersGate, Direct2Drive, etc.) December 21.

The multiplayer pack puts players in the boots either of a U.S. Marine or as a member of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) to fight in four new multiplayer maps built using DICE's Frostbite engine. In addition to the four new multiplayer maps, Vietnam features new weapons, vehicles, achievements, and trophies.

The maps are set in the rice fields of the Phu Bai Valley, and the infamous Hill 137, and other locations that emphasize the contentious struggle between U.S. North Vietnamese forces. All maps support classic Battlefield modes such as Conquest and Rush.

New vehicles include the American helicopter, the Russian T54 tan, the US PBR "Pibber" patrol boat, and three other vehicles. Vietnam features 15 new weapons such as the Navy SEAL XM22 machinegun, and the M79 "Blooper" Grenade Launcher.

Finally, Vietnam features two hours of music from the era such as "Ride of the Valkyries" and "Fortunate Son" by CCR, available on eight in-game radio stations. The expansion also features voiceovers for both American and Vietnamese forces, based on communications recorded during the real Vietnam War.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam releases for $14.99 USD or 1200 MS points on Xbox Live Marketplace.

DICE also announced plans to release the VIP Map Pack 7 on December 1. This DLC package includes four multiplayer maps -- including reworked versions of fan favorites Oasis and Harvest Day from Battlefield: Bad Company. This map pack is free to owners of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on PC, and console players who registered their VIP code.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
