Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Vietnam

Alright, let's do this.

Got a great review from IGN. It's an expansion to BF:BC2 and is released on 12/21/2010 for 360/PS3, (12/18/2010 for PC).

Quote:
Get ready for a whole new war! Set in the infamous Vietnam conflict, 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, 15 classic Vietnam-era weapons and six vehicles. The expansion pack introduces four distinct and brand new multiplayer maps based on the Vietnam War. Each map brings a new gameplay experience with elements such as foxholes, tunnels and dense jungles from where the enemy can launch surprise attacks.

All four multiplayer game modes from Battlefield: BC2, including the genre-defining Conquest Mode, will also be playable in Vietnam. The expansion is integrated with the full game persistence, so no matter what theatre of war players are in, they will continue to level up. To set that unmistakable 60's atmosphere, the audio team at DICE has recorded all-new voice-overs for both sides of the conflict, based on authentic dialogue from the Vietnam war.

I think it will be full of bugs, unplayable for about a week and a half, the iron sights on guns will be retarded still, and the maps will be disappointing.

I took some notes during the chat with the DICE devs earlier today. Thought this might help some people needing more info.

- there will be hardcore mode
- all modes are available for all maps
- Recon has mortar strikes
- your points count towards BC2 rank
- you can replenish the flamethrower with the ammo box
- no AA guns, but RPG and stationary weapons do heavy damage to choppers
- M16 is full auto
- all specializations will count, except 2 modern ones (not specified in the chat, but should be obvious)
- no Vietnam weapons in BC2
- "The huey is a mix of transport and attack helicopter behavior in BC2. It is light and agile and easy to fly but takes longer time to master!"
- will be download only right now (not on CD)
- The flamethrower on the tank replaces the coax gun addon in BC2
- flames won't hurt the tank (derp)
- new achievements
- in vehicles, you can change the radio
- knife has been tweaked to be faster (also in BC2)
- tuc tuc carries 3
- flamethrower range is about 15 meters
- "all weapons in Vietnam have unique tweaks compared to BC2."
- snipers: There will be 3 different rifles, and they will be either semi-automatic or bolt action
- snipers: will be able to use both the TNT and Mortar at the same time
- There is a classic US Vietnam river boat with 1 dual MG in the front and MG in the back
- if you're playing music in a vehicle, enemies can hear it (sweet!)
- there will be parachutes
- 5 in the huey; you have the main weapon for the pilot which are rockets. 2 side mounted guns as well.
- re-spawning times are slighter shorter than BC2.
- "We have several sound designers here. On Vietnam, we had three. One working with voices, one with ambience and one with sound effects and music."
- in rush, you're destroying radio communication centrals instead of M-COMs.
- there are foxholes and tunnels dug under the ground
bolded is the reason im getting it. can't wait to drive around blasting music

From the IGN review:
Quote:
What's more, weapons, and therefore classes, have been subtly rebalanced by virtue of said new weapons and the absence of sights and scopes for all but recon players.
Quote:
With secondary abilities scaled back somewhat and scopes gone to even out the middle-range playing field, Vietnam makes Bad Company 2 approachable again.
Sounds like they're keeping it pretty balanced. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Hueys feel more like the UAV, which is odd, but at the same time fun. Blue tint in the rendering in some maps. Join a Hill 137 game, then a Vantage point. You'll see what I mean.

PC ftw of course.

start BF:BC2 like you would, when you get to the main menu, there will be a button that says Vietnam to the left of the screen. Then enter the Vietnam CD-Key

And there will be at least one map like Atacama desert or Port Valdez where you run for 10 minutes, and if you get killed you have to do it all over again.

ever play highway tampa for 2142? god lord that map was huge. And if you had to bail out of a transport or jet in the middle of nowhere, you might as well just suicide, because it would take 10 minutes of sprinting to get to the nearest place.
