EA’s pursuit of Modern Warfare 2 just got hot, as DICE has announced via the Battlefield Blog that on March 30 — the same day the Stimulus Package DLC will boost Modern Warfare 2’s map count — Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s VIP members will receive the free “VIP Map Pack 2,” which adds a Conquest mode scenario to the Arica Harbor map and Rush mode to Laguna Presa.
Both maps aren’t new to the game, however neither has been available for play in the “unlocked” game modes noted above. So, that kinda qualifies as a “map pack,” right? Regardless, it’s free, as DICE boldly proclaims in its stab at Activision and Infinity Ward: “How to avoid ‘mapathy’ without paying!” (via joystiq.com)
March 30th will also be a day for some DLC for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The FREE DLC will really just unlocks conquest and rush modes on artic harbor and laguna presa. Both maps aren’t new to the game which I don’t know why its called “Map Pack” but regardless its FREE and will open up some new game modes on those said maps. BFBC2 players will definitely want to make down the 30th as well and get some DLC goodness.
