EDIT: I didn't realise this was a mandatory update. Expect to download 2.6gb next time you play the game! Ugh.
There are two pieces of Battlefield news! First is that the latest BFBC2 map pack will arrive some time today. It's looking like the best of the map packs so far, with four new maps. FOUR NEW MAPS. JESUS CHRIST! There are two maps from the original Battlefield Bad Company multiplayer, and two from BFBC2's single player. They're all redone to make for BFBC2 multiplayer awesomeness. I am going to be playing the hell out of them on the RPS server a bit later. Also, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be appearing on 18th of December on Steam and EA Store, and 21st everywhere else. We shall also be playing that. Then.
I've posted the splendid, explosive map pack trailer below. Go. Me.
