With Battlefield: Bad Company 2's downloadable expansion Vietnam launching this season, developer DICE has drafted community manager Daniel Matros to give the run-down of its features, from new maps and tanks to iron sights and flamethrowers.

Vietnam is slated for a downloadable release some time this winter on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It'll cost you $14.99 (1,200 Microsoft Points).

    Did he really say only 2 new maps? I thought it was going to be 4. I really don't see why they can't put up a better showing like 6 maps, I've not heard of there being any sp campaign. I really doubt new gun models and a couple vehicles take that much time.

      I believe this was recorded at a recent event so he was most probably talking about the two maps being shown there. It's a bit sloppy, though.

      2 new maps being showcased.

      5 maps will be in the retail release.

      Even 4 or 5 maps would be rather sloppy to be honest. And they didn't really release any new material or maps since the beginning of BC2, except for rereleasing the same maps over and over again.

      Now if there was a MAP editor, things sure would look different...

        IIRC, it's 4 vietnam maps and 1 or 2 maps ported from BC1. There was a vote or something on which map to port.

        Map making tools aren't going to happen. The following link by one of the developers patiently explains why. http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-bad-company-2-pc/1350772-so-how-about-modtools.html

        /I share your sentiments about the lack of new content. I don't really care about reskinned vehicles or guns. I want new maps.
        //I don't think DICE or the publisher thought this game was going to do this well. Thus they had commited development time to MOH MP instead of building on the success of BC2.
