Battlefield: Bad Company 2 VIP Map Pack 7 Incoming

By DavieMarshall, 6 years ago
EA have announced that "VIP Map Pack 7" is on the way to http://www.trueachievements.com/game.aspx?gameid=2268. Upon announcing the four strong map pack, EA stressed this time release was 'all about listening to the community' and confirmed that the content of the DLC is 'free for PC and console VIP players'.

Having held a vote on players favourite maps from the original http://www.trueachievements.com/game.aspx?gameid=1636, the two winning maps, Oasis and Harvest Day will appear in this DLC. The maps have been redesigned and revamped to include improved lighting, sharpened graphics, new ambient sounds and, of course, a destructible environment.

The lead designer, Cristian Pavel, assured gamers that despite they changes they would still feel 'at home' with the maps:

The map has not been changed drastically, so returning players will feel right at home the moment they step into this Oasis. The revised parts of the levels are minor. For example, the gold crates in BC1 were located on the rooftops, which we can't have now that entire buildings can collapse. So we had to put the crates on the ground in some places. Things like that.
