  • BFBC2 getting “extensive paid DLC” in the next six months

    Source:

    I hope that free DLC comes out real soon. This game needs more maps for sure. To note: Its still possible that existing owners (first time owners) get the said DLC above for free if this is still part of the $10 program to discourage second hand buyers.

          We are actually supposed to get a couple more maps for free, then they start charging for more. Might make things complicated for TG servers, as not everyone is going to want to buy more maps.
          Another article on it:

            Well, if we stay strong with multiple servers we could run full map rotation servers and non-DLC ones.

                  Exactly!!!!!!!!

                  Splitting a community up is one of the quickest ways to kill an online game. I remember it happened to FarCry with a patch snafu shortly after release, where half the players couldn't get the new patch to work, but it fixed a lot of stuff, so the players that could get it to work went with it. People got fed up waiting the month or so for UBI to get it fixed and never came back. The ammount of servers and players in them by the time it was fixed was tiny compared to before.

                  This isn't a patch the same way as FarCry, but it does the same thing. Some TG guys aren't going to buy, some are, and we won't be able to play on the same servers as much. The better thing EA/DICE should do is like with BF2, release mod tools so people can make their own maps for free. How can they be so clueless and forget what worked and why BF2 still sells so well. :row__531:

                      They didn't forget. They're a business. They've already gained the reputation, now they're milking it for what it's worth.

                        They should've just made the whole thing subscription based.

                          I heard the First Paid DLC will be a Functional Server Browser (Circa Tribes 1 or even Tribes 2!) and then followed by a VOIP Pack... Again..Just rumors...

                          On Another Note... Is this another reason why we, as PC Gamers, should fear the prominance of games that the companies state will not be open to the modding community? Think of a Little game called BF2... Look at the lessons "learned" there by the DICE/EA Folks...
                          Every time someone boot's up PR...someone at EA Marketing sheds a tear...

                            They're marketing to console players. Not to mention they would lose sales overall for players who wouldn't want to pay2play.


                            Every time someone boots up PR, someone at EA Marketing is taking a money bath.
