Revealed at EA's conference, Battlefield: Bad Company 2
is set to get a brand new expansion pack later this year, entitled Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam
(no prizes for guessing the setting!). The DLC has been confirmed as a multiplayer-only expansion, and has been described by EA like this:
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.
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 and achievements. Featuring four new maps playable in classic Battlefield modes including Conquest and Rush, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be available worldwide this winter for the Xbox 360. Price will be announced at a later date.
Price is still yet to be confirmed, and the release date is just a vague Winter. But what we can deduce from that Watson is that it's no small DLC pack but rather a hefty, sizeable add-on that will take a couple more months to finish off - which sounds great if you ask me!

itself, I suppose.
