Overwatch 2 - Everything You Need To Know
Post by trog @ 09:16am 15/06/10 | 25 Comments
At E3, EA and DICE have announced that Battlefield Bad Company 2 will be sending gamers back in time to "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.
There'll be four new maps available as part of this DLC, with pricing to be announced later (seems safe to assume that it will be a paid download for PC users as well given the carefully chosen title of "digital expansion pack"). A teaser trailer is also available.

I hope so eh. I notice there's a setting for 'carradio' in the settings.cfg for BC2

the YouTube promo vid doesn't seem to show much, though that'll change I guess

*edit*

is there a new single player mission???

Hope they send us to a new theatre by fixing the f*****g bugs in this game! I still have to kill BFBC2GAME.EXE manually after every time I open it.

It will have 4 maps, thats 2 actual maps with 2 modes conquest and rush. I believe they will add more maps later so we can look forward to squad rush and squad deathmatch.

It needs to be free simply because it's just BF:V ported to the BFBC2 engine.

I'm sure a lot of work went into it but it's not like it's something new, the video already gives one of the maps away.

yeah the limited map selection is really s***ting me to tears now. bring on onslaught.. i was almost tempted to pickup mw2 whilst its on sale at eb this week just to see something differant. 1 new map a month would be awesome and no too much to ask for? (with both rush and conquest versions)

Hmm, I wonder if they'll bring back the Huey's with the winches and the F4 Phantom with napalm? Nothing better than watching an entire wave of enemies getting stopped in their tracks by a wall of flame :-)

while we're on the battlefield subject ... any news on battlefield 1943? the fact it hasn't been released on PC is re-goddamn-diculous.

Will just be like BF1943 a content lacking flop with so much potential - i doubt ill buy it im well and truly over BF1943 after a few thousand kills.

I'm still hanging on in hope they do a full 1942 remake with the frostbite engine and full game content of BF1942 with all the vehicles/maps - i miss that game so much :(

BC2 works fine for me and I lurve eeeet.

If there was a man/woman/yeti standing behind me with a gun to my head telling me to buy either this or the modern warfare 2 expansion maps, I'd pick this without even thinking about it.

Since there's no gun I'll wait until I see the price to confirm or deny.

You guys realise this is DLC for BC2, not a full game right?

All I see it doing is removing the UAV and motion sensors and all the cool s***, and replacing them with s***tier guns.

Oh I thought it was like the Team Arena thing for quake 3. Is it just a couple of maps or something? Like I said, I'll wait for the price to say yes or no on this one as I'm still more willing to pay for decent addons for BC2 as it's infinitely better than MW2.

It's really just a money making scan tbh. Exactly the same as Medal of honor.

I think you're the one that's broken. Works fine for me

lol?
What about the horrid knife? and the pathetic support for competitive gameplay?

I don;t understand why they are releasing a DLC and a new game at the same time, obviously for money hoarding.

Knife was fine before, then heaps of noobs were crying that they get knifed too much.. Dice nerfed it, and now it's worse so they are changing it back to how it was before with the next patch if only Romania hurry the f*** up..

Smithy
Posted 03:29pm 16/6/10
uhhhhhhh how did they nerf it?
Do you mean that they made it not kill on purpose?
Or do you mean they made it 2 hits to kill?

And the knife is ridiculously retarded, I have many a time clicked my knife button and done a 180 off a cliff and back up to kill someone.

Backstab is almost impossible to do now (was fine before the nerf).. stabbing whilst face to face works fine.

I'm thinking it's PC gamers who are broken. We went next gen awhile ago and most of you who I've played with still can't seem to use the ingame voip.

works fine here, along with others (TS/etc). Hardcore is s*** without teamwork.. 90% of that is talking with your squaddies.

jesus - go back to Quake/CS

they're reversing the recent change to allow backstabbing again.

MG3 is getting ramped up to be the king of medic guns.. this'll be interesting...

The ingame voip periodically works and its on DICE's "We need to fix this s***" list.

Unfortunately its down at the bottom.

So thats why people cant use the ingame voip.

Posted 09:10am 17/6/10
when it works, it's real s***.. Valve make the best ingame voip, it's not one of Dice's strengths.

Voip worked great on bf2. They just needed to include it.
