EA STORMS THE FRONTLINES WITH BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2 VIETNAM


Guildford, UK – June 14, 2010 – DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) studio today announced the first multiplayer Expansion Pack for the mega-hit Battlefield: Bad Company 2 where gamers will find themselves in an entirely new theatre of war – Vietnam. Fighting as either U.S. Marines or North Vietnamese Army (NVA), the hostile combat terrain of the Vietnamese jungle is brought dramatically to life via the Frostbite engine with a host of authentic vehicles and weapons with which to engage the enemy. The punishing jungles, powerful air invasions, and guerilla tactics of an unpredictable enemy deliver non-stop action in this sandbox environment, a signature design style of the award-winning Swedish studio. With more than 5M units sold, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has been hailed as, “…a better game than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” by Seth Schiesel of The New York Times.

The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam digital expansion pack takes all of the intensity, action and addictive gameplay of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and ups the ante with enhanced persistence, new weapons, vehicles, unlocks, awards, achievements and trophies. Featuring four new maps playable in classic Battlefield modes including Conquest and Rush, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be available worldwide this winter for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC. Price will be announced at a later date.

Defined by its exceedingly intense vehicular warfare, destruction, variety of weapons and huge sandbox environments, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of 2010’s top selling action games. The game is available in North America and Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

    GriftGFX I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (1 Hour ago)
