Title: Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Post by: GamerMan316 on August 18, 2009, 07:55:42 PM
(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/02/battlefieldbadcompany2announcement.jpg)

One of the biggest stories out of today's Electronic Arts press conference was a pair of firm release dates for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.  The highly anticipated sequel will be hitting North America first on March 2, 2010.  A few days later, the game will be hitting European store shelves on March 5, 2010.

EA praised their upcoming war game to the highest degree, even claiming that players "will soon witness the best-in-class online warfare experience".  Will it stand toe to toe with Modern Warfare 2?  Only time will tell.

However, developer behind the Battlefield frranchise, DICE, is stressing that Bad Company 2 will deliver a level of destruction, vehicular warfare, squad play and open world environments that have never been experienced in a modern warfare game.  There will also be new air, land and sea vehicles for players to sink their teeth into.

Customization will also play a role in the game, when players can choose from a selection of 46 different weapons and then can customize them into over 200 different high-powered firearms.  There will be over 15,000 possible kit variations, so each player will be able to pick the weapon upgrades and combat enhancements that will suit their playing style.

Just six and a half short months until we can see if EA and DICE can back up their high praises on their highly anticipated game.

Sarge will be psyched for this.

Unfortunately, Battlefield was one of the games I had to miss because of time constraints.  I look forward to picking it up used and cheap next year.

I agree, very good game, I only rented it so I only tried MP a few times, but it was very good, good single player too.

 I've had this game for over a year still not finished it. I've never played it online. Would love to play it some time, If there is anyone who has the game and wants to play online and does not mind a complete noob let me know.

Watch out for Battlefield Bad Company 2 phishing, warns BF blog

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/11/battlefieldbadcompanyphishing.jpg)

DICE is letting folks know that there are currently no Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta sign-ups, meaning that any recent invitations you may have received represent scams. Battlefield producer Gordon Van Dyke is letting the community know that any site asking you to sign up for the beta is phishing -- he recommends you "give them the middle finger."

Van Dyke notes that if players aren't reading an announcement from the company's site or official Twitter, it just ain't real. Although we're sure you savvy consumers know better in this age, game companies aren't going to ask for your social security, mother's maiden name or other standard security questions.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 won't put up a fight against XBL party chat

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/12/bfbc2.120809-580px.jpg)

Electronic Arts has called in another marketing airstrike against Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, hoping to pull members of its fanbase who're unhappy with its online play towards Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The previous target was dedicated servers for PC players; now it's Xbox Live party chat and the ability to use it in multiplayer.

Speaking with MTV Multiplayer, EA DICE producer Gordon Van Dyke stated, "We are ok with [party chat]. We haven't taken a stance being against it and feeling like people are cheating." Modern Warfare 2 only offers party chat support in a handful of its multiplayer playlists, ostensibly to curb cheating. But, according to Van Dyke, he doesn't "think [cheating with party chat is] that big of an issue, that I've seen, where we have to worry about that" in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

So, is party chat (or the lack thereof) really that important to you?

Party chat sucks, it could be used to boost games though.

Latest Bad Company 2 Gameplay Trailer Has More Tanks Than China

In the trailers for Bad Company 2 to date, the vehicular combat has taken more of a backseat to the destruction engine and the general feel of war. That changes today! The latest Bad Company 2 trailer is absolutely littered with tanks left, right and centre. Lots of tanks and vehicles is a good thing though... and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Incidentally, the level in question is a new level that DICE and EA are showing off called Panama Canal.

DICE: Bad Company 2 'reaching' Uncharted 2's graphics
Reckons game's vistas are better, though.

Upcoming FPS Battlefield Bad Company 2 is "reaching" the graphical quality set by last year's stunning PS3-exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but it will not surpass it, developer DICE had admitted.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com, producer Gordon Van Dyke said no game can claim to better the graphics seen in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2.

"I wouldn't make that kind of claim," he said. "Uncharted 2 is an amazing-looking game. But we're reaching that level of quality. It's going to be hard for any game to be able to make a claim that they look better. But we are getting to, I feel, that level, where it's looking very impressive. When you see it - and I've heard other people say it as well, so it's not just me - other people are saying it's getting there."

Uncharted 2, released last year, raised the bar for video game graphics, with incredible animations and detailed environments wowing PS3 owners.

But Van Dyke reckons Bad Company 2, which is our 37th most anticipated game of 2010, will surpass Uncharted 2 in one key area: vistas.

"The thing is though, we have much bigger environments. To even be close, to me is quite an honour as a developer. The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we're doing better. I looked at their vistas, and I think that our vistas, because it's in game, this is actual in-game terrain you could theoretically take your soldier and walk up to, our vistas are better. Naughty Dog, if you hear this, I challenge you versus our vistas!"

With Bad Company 2 due out on March 5, we don't have long to wait to compare the two games.


Not too bothered about the visuals myself it's going to be better than the overhyped mess that is MW2, so i'll be happy  :)

UK retailer dates Battlefield Bad Company 2 demo

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/12/battlefieldbadcompany2announcement.jpg)

UK retailer Game has listed the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo as starting on February 4, 2010. The demo will apparently run for three weeks on both Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Although these details have yet to be confirmed by EA or DICE, the information seems rather specific and comes from a major retailer.

Bad Company 2 loses smooth tunes, keeps hardcore explosions

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/01/badcompany2sgh2580.jpg)

During tonight's season premiere of Gametrailers TV, EA's Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was at center stage with first footage and details of the game's single-player experience. The episode revealed the original B Company would return, with players reprising their role as Private Preston Marlowe. The single-player story, which takes players from Alaska to South America, sees the rambunctious squad attempt to locate a devastating weapon system the Russians have uncovered.

Of course, destruction once again plays a major role in the game, but sadly the smooth soundtrack that accompanied the original game seems to have been replaced by a generic "epic" score. Hopefully it'll be the least of our concerns when the estimated "10 hour" experience lands on consoles and on PC on March 2, 2010.

According to the episode, a new multiplayer demo will land some time in February (perhaps the rumored demo date is accurate?) When contacted for an actual date for the new demo, an EA representative told Joystiq details would be revealed soon.

Battlefield Bad Company 2's Single-Player Will Be A More Serious Matter

(http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/9/2010/01/500x_bc2.jpg)

We already knew that EA believes March's Battlefield Bad Company 2 poses a threat to Activision's Modern Warfare series. In terms of multiplayer, they've made the case. For single player, they're finally getting specific.

Developers from EA's DICE studio, longtime makers of the Battlefield series, told Geoff Keighley on the seasons premiere of Game Trailers TV that the campaign will last 10 hours, reuniting the lead characters from the first game, but putting them in a more serious situation. The game's producer Patrick Bach promised a similar scale of action as what's been shown for the game's multiplayer. Points of emphasis continues to be that players can use the vehicles they see in the game and blow up any building.

The game's executive producer, Karl Magnus Troedsson, referred to the division of labor on the single-player and multiplayer portions of Battlefield Bad Company 2 as "a 50/50 effort."

In December, EA CEO John Riccitiello told Kotaku that Bad Company 2 is part of EA's effort to reclaim some war-game glory: "I'm not saying it's going to happen tomorrow, but in the way that Activision sort of alternates sequels of Modern Warfare and Call of Duty and owns the leadership position in FPS [first-person-shooter], between [EA's] Medal of Honor and Battlefield, I want it back."
Title: Re: Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Post by: sambo on January 28, 2010, 01:36:43 PM
Karl-Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer of the Battlefield series, has told OXM that Bad Company 2 will have free DLC.
Troedsson revealed the information when asked about the possibility of there being free DLC for Bad Company 2.

"There is definitely a solid plan for what we're going to do post-launch with this product," he replied. "We haven't announced all the details about it but yes, there will be free stuff for it, we really want to take care of people who buy our games. So yes, there will be free stuff. We did quite a bit of free stuff in Bad Company 1 as well.

"People need to be aware we're a business, we need to make money, so there will be some things you have to pay for but we will work hard to find balance in between those so people will get what they think is worth their money. I'm pretty sure people will be happy with it."

Post by: NeuroticSarge on January 30, 2010, 09:28:05 AM
On an initial quick game,it is basically the same as no.1,but a whole lot better.
The thing I loved about this game was the fast frenetic game play.This hasn't changed and to those that havn't played the first will get a bit overwhelmed by it.
The player is bigger than before which was one of my gripes from the first game,and the weapons are more realisic.
For example,if your sniping from a fair distance,then you'll see your round droop after a while.Not like in MW2 where you can safely snipe from 5 miles away and not experience any corliolis effect.
I loved the first game and this is going to take up a lot of my time.Also,bear in mind this is a demo so expect some more polish when it's released.

BF: Bad Company 2 has WWII level

DICE is sneaking a Japan-based World War II level into Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

That's according to an ESRB rating for the game, which read: "In single-player mode, players conduct missions on an unnamed Japanese island during World War II and then move into the modern day through jungles, deserts and snowy terrain."

We heard last year that various weaponry from Battlefield 1943 would be supported in BFBC2.

These discoveries may point to no more than a scene-setting flashback. EA may also be testing the waters for a Call of Duty: World at War-like romp.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 5th March.

Bad Company 2 Systems Being Reset On Xbox 360

(http://game-smack.net/storage/bad-company2.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1268028835121)

At 3:00a.m. PST, 11:00 a.m. GMT the systems will be reset on all Xbox 360 systems. This would be largely due to there being 400% more traffic than any other Battlefield game ever made. Do you think they should of seen this coming? This was posted on the Official bad Company 2 Twitter page:
 
"Today there will be a restart of our BFBC2 Xbox 360 systems at 3:00 AM PST, 11:00 GMT. Please spread the word."

What are your thoughts on the situation?


Not a problem for me as i'll only be getting it this afternoon  :)

Awesome for the Bad Company franchise.  But these little blips push me further away from supporting 'dedicated' servers.  Pretty much every EA multiplayer game that's released over the past year(s) has had one issue or another.

I'm still looking forward to playing it.  I still haven't unwrapped the first Bad Company, which I want to play before the sequel.

the medics weapon isn't really that good. best starting with engineer or assault and firing in short bursts. also don't run and gun if you can avoid it, easiest way to get taken out. Try and stay low and in cover as much as you can and pick off the enemy that way.  :)

DICE doesn't want to charge for Battlefield:BC2 maps; EA can't comment

Does EA support in-game ads like Ubisoft does?

If so, I say just sell some adspace in the maps.  Free maps = larger audience = marketing gold.  It's a win-win-win situation.

The world will be so much better once I'm in charge.   ;)

Battlefield: BC2 console update coming May 11

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/01/gambfbc2limiteded580.jpg)

Recons! Medics! Assaults! Lend us your Engineers! If you're still adhering to your nightly routine of playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 until your eyes refuse to stay open any longer, you'll be pleased to hear about some upcoming changes coming to console versions of the game. Unless, of course, you actually like the game's unkillable, super overpowered deathcopters. In that case, you're about to be sorely disappointed.

Changes coming in the update -- due out May 11 via Xbox Live and PSN -- include a few balance tweaks of most weapons, a slight nerfing of the attack helicopter and an increase in the velocity of tracer darts, making it easier to stick 'em to that aforementioned helicopter. Joy!

Check out the full list of changes after the jump.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 update changelog:

    * Increased the base range of all Automatic and Semiautomatic weapons for more consistent close range combat.
    * Slightly increased the damage of Semiautomatic rifles over long range for more consistent damage output.
    * Increased the zoomed burst accuracy of LMGs and decreased LMG accuracy when moving to reduce LMG run and gun.
    * Decreased the base damage of the M60 and XM8 LMGs to bring them in line with the other LMG damage values.
    * Decreased the damage of the PKM over long range to balance it with other LMGs.
    * Increased the base damage of the Type88 LMG to balance it with other LMGs.
    * Slightly reduced the base damage of the M16 and G3 to balance the increased range.
    * Slightly increased the damage of the AEK971, F2000, AN94, and AUG over long range to balance them with other Assault Rifles.
    * Reduced the lethal blast range of the 40mm grenade and M2CG to highlight their role as a secondary weapon against infantry.
    * Slightly Reduced the max range of the 40mm shotgun to balance it with other shotguns.
    * Slightly increased the base damage of shotgun rounds and reduced their range to clarify ideal shotgun combat distance.
    * Reduced the base damage of the PP2000 to balance the increased range.
    * Increased the damage of the 9A91 over long range to balance its lower magazine size.
    * Increased the damage and range of the M9, M93 pistols to make them more desirable as a secondary weapon.
    * Increased the range of the MP443 pistol to make it more desirable as a secondary weapon.
    * Increased the damage of the MP412 over long range to balance its low rate of fire.
    * Slightly reduced the rate of fire of the M1911 pistol to balance it with other pistols.
    * Increased the repair and overheat speeds of the Power Tool. Now overheats sooner but repairs the same amount before overheating.
    * Increased the maximum number of Motion Sensors that can be carried from 2 to 3 and increased the speed which new sensors are acquired  from ammo boxes.
    * Significantly increased the speed of the Tracer Dart projectile to make it more effective against airborne targets.
    * Increased the reload time of the Mortar Strike and reduced the damage it does to heavily armored vehicles.
    * Decreased the range of Bolt Action Sniper and Pump Shotgun Slug rounds when using Magnum Ammo for better Kit Balance, especially in Hardcore.
    * Slightly increased the Health of soldiers in Hardcore for better Kit Balance.
    * Increased the benefit from the Medkit Heal+ specialization to make it more desirable as a Specialization.
    * Decreased the benefit from Vehicle Reload Speed to balance it against other Vehicle Specializations.
    * Slightly decreased the benefit from accuracy specializations to balance the changes to range and accuracy tweaks.
    * Fixed a bug where the BMD3 would take extra damage to the front armor.
    * Reduced the explosive damage from Attack Helicopter cannons.
    * Increased the damage of AA guns against all targets. The AA gun should be much more effective against infantry on Port Valdez.

DICE Announces Bad Company 2 Onslaught DLC

At EA's spring showcase that is taking place in London today, DICE announced its first piece of premium DLC for their recent shooter, Bad Company 2 - a co-operative mode called "Onslaught."

Onslaught, which is coming soon says the Swedish developer, is an all new co-operative game mode that consists of 4 objective based missions on some of the game's current crop of maps - Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes and Nelson Bay.

The co-op mode will pit you and up to 3 friends against an onslaught - get it? - of enemy controlled AI troops as you tackle various objectives on the map, with a whole host of vehicles to take down from tanks to armoured boats.

All of the maps have been redesigned to fit with the game mode in mind, including such things as sandstorms, night combat and more to keep them feeling fresh.

Onslaught will also include 8 new achievements/trophies and will offer players of all mindsets - both casual and hardcore - something new, whether you just want to play for fun or compete in the online leaderboard.

A little more on "Onslaught"   :)

DICE has announced a new, four-player co-op pursuit for Battlefield: Bad Company called Onslaught mode.

This is "coming soon" to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. The content will be paid for, according to a post by DICE associate producer "Bazajaytee" on the EA forums. He didn't say how much, simply answering "nope" when asked if the content would be free.

Onslaught mode will not be available on PC. "We aren't ruling out Onslaught on PC, but at this time we are researching how to bring it to PC without affecting players who don't have Onslaught or their own server to run it on," said Bazajaytee. "We haven't given up on a PC version of Onslaught as I say, just we have a lot things to work out first."

What's the point of a VIP pass if all the content pay for anyway, except some variations....

fantastic to see the developers taking the time and effort to fix online problems so quickly, unlike a certain game involving chainsaws. Not played it in a while might give it a blast on sunday night

BAD COMPANY 2 VIETNAM

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!

Ok, i am having the same problems with this game as i had during the beta. After 15 mins online the sound goes completely has anyone else had this problem? I tried googling the problem but not found any answers yet. I have installed the game on my hard drive, should i try playing off the disc?
Help :'(
I also noticed that once the sound goes it affects the dashboard sounds too. The only way to regain any sound is rebooting ???

The old standby solution to all game glitches I encounter:

1.  If the game is installed on my HDD, delete the game (4-8GB file)
2.  Clear HDD cache.
3.  Start game from disc and install latest update when prompted.
4.  Exit back to Dashboard and reinstall disc.

This method has remedied a lot of games for me (Oblivion, Left 4 Dead, Splinter Cell, etc.).




Another possible solution:

I had my sound cut out at one point. I went into the menu and changed it over to Home cinema then back to war tapes and it worked just fine.

I will try those Neato, thanks for your time but i am pretty convinced it may be my xbox. Its a 3+ year old arcade and after friday night when it kept freezing up on gears 2 i think its dying. I will try this game on my dads xbox which is only 5 months old just to prove the theory. What do you think, worth trying?

Excellent single player game, i really enjoyed it. Also in my opinion the best online shooter available at the moment, i have never come across any cheats or glitchers at all and it's brilliant fun. And it's certainly not died online, far from it.

Post by: DFUSIONITE on August 15, 2010, 09:53:07 PM
I agree with most of that article, but i would also add that a large percentage of online gamers are idiots/kids who love to camp, spawn kill, cheat their way to victory and be a 'lone wolf' by getting as many kills as they can for themselves even if it's to the detriment of their team mates. That's partly the  reason why modern warfare 2 is at number one and why cod 4 and gears 2 are still above bad company 2 even though their public matches are inferior. I would LOVE some proper new maps for BC2 instead of variants, but i would still rather play the same old maps on BC2 over and over than play any of the newer cod games or even gears 2 (unless it an xp event  :P)

Here's hoping EA and Dice get their act together and give us some BRAND NEW maps soon eh, cos BC2 really is my favourite online shooter. ever.  :)

I have noticed the same maps coming up over and over again already but that is probably because i have been playing squad death match and squad rush. Sorry i didn't join you guys Friday as i was with three others that i play regular with and we have all started playing this at the same time. I think when you have a full squad all communicating and working together there is no greater experience on line.

It's the only one I don't have. I hate having 1 achievement to get! All the time I had 3 it wasn't bothering me, but after I got the other 2 the final one becomes like a Holy Grail!  >:(

Sorry, I'm in a bad mood tonight  :(

I agree with JT, 1 achievement left is not allowed you've gotta make the effort.

I have 1 left on splinter cell conviction and 1 left on gears 2. They will be done in time. It's just that sometimes people go about these achievements like its going to work or something "i have got to get it done"
Wasnt it JT that recently got fed up with gaming recently??
Well it may happen again JT, play for fun mate ;)
You probably think i put extra effort into getting to 100 on gears 2 but it wasnt like that. It just happens that i like to play it a lot and i still do, seriously2.0 will come eventually but i gotta string it out to april 2011 aint i?

he hasn't the single mindedness of level 100 on Gears, he's started to think on other things. >_< you may need the BIG tranquilizers to take down 'The Brain' :P :P

takes a lot of effort to get a public game together where we're all on the same team. Aslong as we have 8+ we will do Private game next time, will be much better.

EA will spruce up Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with a handful of older Bad Company maps.

VIP Map Pack 7 will contain 'Oasis' and 'Harvest Day' from the original's multiplayer, while 'Cold War' and 'Heavy Metal' will be plucked from Bad Company 2's single player.

No word on when these maps are due but as always with Bad Company 2 DLC, it's free for those who bought a new copy of the game and have their VIP pass but not for those who picked it up second hand.

Hi all

Not sure if this is the right part for this but I just got an email telling me there are 4 brand new maps available now for bfbc 2 multiplayer, free to pc and console VIP members.

I'm not sure if you knew already but if so my apologies, I might have a look as its quite a good game

Bad Company 2 Vietnam - Battle Hastings Map has been unlocked.

Well, the PC community managed to unlock the map on December 30th, but the Xbox community still had a fair way to go, having totalled approximately 49 million team actions at the time of writing.

EA, however, were pleased with everybody's efforts, and were especially pleased with the success of the add-on, and Map Pack 7, which both released last month. As a result, EA have enabled the Operation Hastings map for all platforms as a gift for the new year.

So thanks to PC gamers, console gamers get to play Hastings in half the time!!! super happy awesome time.

Don't worry, it happens all the time, your stats will come back at some point, and then disappear again, and then come back again, and then disappear again... you get the point!
