Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Unveiled

A sombre Battlefield: Bad Company 2 cinematic trailer and several screenshots have been deployed from the Tokyo Game Show to give our best look so far at DICE's multiplayer "digital expansion pack" for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Set during the ill-conceived conflict, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will feature four new maps "from the rice fields of the Phu Bai Valley to the napalm scorched earth of Hill 137." New toys include 15 weapons and 6 vehicles, such as the Huey helicopter, T54 tank and PBR patrol boat. As you can't mythologise Nam without rockin' tunes, there'll be 8 radio channels playing 49 tracks, with Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries'--as heard in Apocalypse Now--and 'Fortunate Son' by Creedence Clearwater Revival among them.

Announced during E3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be released for download this winter on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The price is yet unknown.

    Looks cool. I wonder if you can play as the north Vietnamese soldiers. If you can, the U.S. army won't let the game be sold on their base.

        Oh, but no, no. The military said that vets and families of vets could have access to MoH and that it might bring up terrible memories or cause them further trauma. Could not Vietnam vets happen to wander in and see this game sitting there, mocking their experiences? One might even argue that Vietnam was worse than Afghanistan, considering the way we as a country treated the Vietnam vets.

        I really think the military needs to ban all military-like games (MoH, CoD, Battlefield, Halo, Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Half-Life) because a game with guns might worsen the trauma of the very people fighting to protect our right to sell games freely and we wouldn't want to maybe traumatize a person looking for a violent video game in the violent video game section on a base dedicated to defending its citizens' right to enjoy freedom.
