DICE and EA have released a new video showcasing the next map pack for their popular first person shooter, Battlefield Bad Company 2.

VIP Map Pack 3 is set to include Squad Deathmatch mode in the Nelson Bay map and Squad Rush in the Laguna Alta Map, various scenes from which can both be seen in the clip right here on AusGamers.

A release date for the pack has yet to be confirmed.

This is not a map-pack, we already have these maps. This is just putting old rule-sets on old maps.
Lame.

I heard it's free for PC's, consoles have to pay... Fine by me if thats the case...

I second the opinion of a map pack should contain NEW maps not just a rehashed version of existing maps for competition modes.

It all came with your game they are just delaying release of them to make it look like support, the video shows a player at 40seconds using an M14 with ACOG scope attached a feature which was removed pre beta.

Awesome another map pack with the same maps, EA stop being bloody lazy and release some actual MAP PACKS with new bloody maps!!! - free content is good yes but this is just pure laziness on their behalf and adds nothing to the replay value at all.

Whoopdief*****gdo another way to play the same friggin map im starting to get sick of. Typical EA, i reckon the next true map pack will cost $$ im willing to put money on it.

EA is really innovating by redefining the term "map pack"...

pure laziness on their part would be no content at all.

Lots of haters. As long as they keep making enough money off consoles and keep pc free I'm happy. They've provided a lot of support for this title since release. Responding to player concerns and addressing issues. Sure you don't like the shtgun snipers, but once that's addressed there'll be something else to complain about. Just try not to spend all your time sooking about it. It's still a very fun game and your sooking might detract from your enjoyment of it unnecessarily.

Actually, what I would really like is to be able to see motion detectors in hardcore without having to drop to map, though only for duration of motion detector.

I regularly go assault sniper (y'know, actual recon stuff opposed to campy snapping people from outside of their field of draw) an this is my only real gripe about hardcore cause it effectively rapes the class of a beneficial team skill.

f*** twisted would you rather nothing at all? ever? or maybe f*****g charge you like every other platform nowdays.
no wonder everyone sells s*** on consoles, some pc players just cant be pleased.
christ.
Tollaz0r!

Aye Hermi, the same thing made me leave the sniper class alone. I now go Engey with Shotgun sniper rounds, seems to be more useful then a motion detector that is a pain to use properly.

I've recently started doing this too.. the T88 and the VSS seem well suited to the job. That VSS went to platinum pretty quickly :)

ta for the map tip...will give it a bash
