  • Patch due 23rd or 28th June

    As long as this continues we are aiming to release on Wednesday (23rd) of next week. However this is dependant on how fast we can gain approval the patch is compliant with Steam. If that approval does not come quick enough the release will slip to the Monday (28th) of the week after (as it is a red day in Sweden on Friday next week and we don't release patches at the end of working weeks).

    This does mean that SPECACT kits will not be available after patching as we had hoped but all other fixes remain as does the ability to play the new modes like Map Pack #3.

    The eyes; they roll so hard.
    About the only solid value I see in that SPECACT stuff is that the RU medic stops wearing that ****ing red hat. Fantastic balance decision there with painting one side's VIP target with a bullseye.

    It is nice to know that helicopters might be slightly less vulnerable than a newborn next to a pack of dingoes sometime soon.

      No, keep the hats. I only get headshot pins playing against the Russians :D
      We are not apologetic for who we are. What we can do, however, is educate people so that they fear us for the right reasons.

            SPECACT kits are kits that give you skins for you class and a certain weapon from that class.

                Thought only the consoles got the SPECACT kits? Wasn't that the Dr. Pepper stuff?

                  Glad to see that funny hats are more important than basic gameplay features.

                    BC2 Developer #1: Hmm, you know what's a good game?
                    BC2 Developer #2: Mass Effect?
                    BC2 Developer #1: Well, yes, but also Team Fortress 2.
                    BC2 Developer #2: How can we make a good game like TF2?
                    BC2 Developer #1: Hats, of course!
                    BC2 Developer #3: TF2 is really well balanced and has lots of style and charm as well as having loads of free updates like maps and new game-modes-
                    BC2 Developer #1: HATS.
                    BC2 Developer #2: HATS.

                    That's how it went.

                      You forgot to add:

                      EA Consultant: But Valve doesn't charge for those things.
                      BC2 Developer #1: Yeah, you're right.
                      *pause*
                      BC2 Developer #2: Doesn't mean we can't. It is going to be a console game. And you know Microsoft practically forces you to make people overpay for basic QoL updates.
                      BC2 Developer #1: Exactly!
                      EA Consultant: Brilliant!
                      BC2 Developer #1 & #2: Bonuses for everyone!
                      EA Consultant: Well, for me at least.

                          Steam failed. It will be the 28th, unless it's delayed again.

                              Just a quick heads-up if you aren't a twitter user...DICE's Barrie Tingle has noted that the Bad Company 2 PC patch will not be out this week. They are now planning for a release next Monday if all goes well.
