Extra Free Maps for "new" PS3 or Xbox 360 BF: Bad Company 2

FPS online games

Anyone purchasing a used copy of next week’s “Battlefield: Bad Company 2″ will miss out on a heaping amount of content, as publisher Electronic Arts today said it’ll bundle 2 EXTRA maps with new copies of the game. 

When you purchase a new copy of the game next week for PS3 or Xbox 360, inside the packaging you’ll find a code good for downloading Laguna Alta for Conquest mode and Nelson Bay for Rush mode. Moreover, later in the month, that same code will get you Arica Harbor for Conquest and Laguna Presa for Rush.

“Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will redefine online modern warfare on March 2. We are deeply committed to the FPS community and Battlefield fans worldwide,” said Patrick Bach, Senior Producer for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. “These first two map packs are just the beginning. We’re planning ongoing support for the community by always keeping the experience fresh and ensuring the best possible gameplay experience.”

This moves come as a continued effort by EA to influence gamers to purchase new copies of its games. “Mass Effect 2″ and “The Saboteur” offered similar ploys and we can’t blame them, publishers and developers don’t see money from used game sales.

Bad Company 2 Demo - Two Million Downloads

The demo for EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has been downloaded over two million times, according to the publisher.

The Xbox Live and PlayStation Network sampler of the DICE developed shooter “is on pace to become the fastest downloaded demo in EA history”, the company said.

“The recently launched PC beta has also met great success, with hundreds of thousands of players already signed up,” it added.

The demo will be available until February 25, ahead of the game’s March 2 release in North America and March 4 launch in Europe.

"We couldn’t be more thrilled to hear that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is already in the hands of almost 2½ million gamers, and it hasn’t even shipped yet," said Patrick Bach, senior producer on the game. "This massive rush to experience the game early is proof positive that action gamers are looking for more. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 delivers on every front. This is intelligent, strategic warfare that our competitors simply cannot replicate."

EA CEO John Riccitiello said recently that Bad Company 2 can help the publisher reclaim the shooter crown from Activision, noting that “looks like a worthy competitor” to Modern Warfare.

"We think we’ve got an advantage over Modern Warfare 2 with our multiplayer,” he said. “The guys at DICE do that really, really well. Frankly, once you get past, sort of, four people on a map, I think our gameplay is better."

A lot has been happening in Battlefield Universe this week and we wanted to wrap it all up in one nice post just in-case you missed something of interest.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Today we released a tutorial video of the Demo map "Port Valdez" Battlefield Bad Company 2 Demo Video with VO by me.  This video is for fresh recruits to the Rush gamemode, but Vets like yourself might enjoy it too. 

And speaking of the BFBC2 MP Demo, it has been very well received with around 3 million downloads to-date.

For the PC Beta players we want to thank you for all your feedback so far, it has been extremely valuable to help ensure a fantastic first PC release on Frostbite. 

We also want to mention we have contacted PBBans to help us work on a global ban-list solution to help ensure the best experience for everyone playing BFBC2 on the PC.

Lastly, make sure to check out the Ultimate Prestige to learn some possible inside info on BF: BC2 

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Field Manual

The online BF: BC2 Field Manual, containing information on the full game's maps and equipment as well as tips from the developers, can be accessed in two ways.

If you're a Battlefield veteran, you can sign in with your email address. Pretty standard, right? Reward the long-time fans. However, the other way to access the site is to be a Modern Warfare 2 veteran.

After punching in your Xbox Live Gamertag, the site will check your "combat experience" with Modern Warfare 2 on your Live account and give you access if you're hardened enough. The website probably just checks if MW2 shows up in your Achievements at all. Sketchball that I am, I punched in the Gamertag of a friend who's only played a small bit of MW2 and they were considered worthy of the Field Manual.
