Battlefield: BC to Receive Conquest Mode as DLC

Though EA DICE's upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company (PS3, X360) will not include the franchises' traditional Conquest multiplayer mode when it arrives on June 23, the mode will be available as a free download following the game's release. nope

Speaking with HEXUS.gaming, senior producer Karl-Magnus Troedsson noted that fan demand for Conquest had caused the company to reconsider its inclusion in Bad Company. No firm date was provided for the download, though the site estimates its arrival "shortly" after the title's June launch.

Public outcry played a similar role in EA DICE's decision to drop pay-to-play weaponry from the game. Players will instead be able to acquire those weapons by buying the Gold Edition of the game, earning the highest level in multiplayer, or participating in various promotions.
