Battlefield Bad Company 2 Mac version soon available

FPS online games

On the heels of Valve Software's recent announcement that it will be bringing Steam to Mac computers in April, EA Dice's executive producer Karl Magnus Troedsson has stated EA is considering bringing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 to Apple computers via Steam.

Mac Games  From the Universal Gaming Database:

EA DICE's executive producer Karl Magnus Troedsson, made mention of the announcement on his Twitter account today stating, "Steam for Mac - Gabe, we like it." The Universal Gaming Database questioned Mr.Trodsson about the possibility of future Battlefield games coming to Mac via the new Steam client, Mr.Trodsson stated "We're currently investigating the possibility of making BFBC2 available on Mac."

DICE has released three titles on Steam for Windows; Battlefield 2: Complete Edition, Mirror's Edge, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Limited Edition and a Bad Company 2 four friend pack similar to the Left 4 Dead's four friend pack. The last DICE game to be released on Mac was Battlefield 2142 in August of 2008. Currently the Windows version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has more players online then the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version combined, the addition of Mac gamers into the mix would push these numbers even higher.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Servers - Disconnection Issues

FPS online games

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ServersThe new server patches (upto R6 at this point), have yet to address any of the problems which is causing the most trouble and seem more of a bug them self as the server has to be stopped and updated to bring the game uptodate, giving just more downtime. For a game that certainly has so much to give, its been hampered with such major server bugs.

EA sent a tweet about servers causing problems earlier in the morning, stating that "EA servers are currently down stopping login to a number of EA games. EA is investigating and will be back online as soon as possible."

This was only a few days after the servers had previously been taken down on Sunday evening. Despite coming back up this afternoon, there will also be planned down time tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. GMT,  with no time yet stated as to when the servers will come back after that.

It's not been a great launch for EA and Dice. We had plenty of problems playing over the weekend and it hasn't exactly been perfect since the 'fix' was issued either. Even on servers we know have been updated there still seemed to be disconnection issues and the server list still takes about 3 minutes to load up, complete with incorrect information about ping and player numbers.

Let's hope this 'maintenance' period fixes some of those issues.

After last nights EA server outage on PS3 and PC, EA have found the issue and put a fix in place and brought the servers back online. This  means that both PS3 and PC players can return back to playing Bad Company 2.

 We are aware of a number of remaining disconnect issues on PC and we have released the “R5” server to hosts yesterday to address some of the disconnects. We are continuing to work on the remaining disconnect issues to have a solution as fast as possible as well as looking into reports of other issues raised on the forums for consoles and PC. 

Battlefield Bad Company 2 has managed to prove so popular that yesterday the concurrent users in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 surpassed that in Battlefield 2 which has been going strong for almost 5 years.
