  • Map Pack 4 released today 07/07/2010

    source

    At 15:50 (GMT+2) I flipped the switch for all the game clients. The RSPs are gradually enabling the map pack on game servers.


    It includes the following two levels:

    Atacama Desert, Rush (code name "levels/mp_005gr")
    Port Valdez, Conquest (code name "levels/mp_012cq")


    If you are a player

    There are already some servers up & running the new maps. Go look for them in the server browser!
    The search filters in your game client will be updated if you restart BFBC2.


    If you are a server administrator

    The maps are available to your server once your RSP has performed a configuration change [essentially: added a commandline option].
    After that the server needs to be rebooted. Then server will recognize the new maps in maplist.txt.

      Gar... just gonna post this too.

      While I'm hoping they eventually release ACTUAL new maps, I don't mind the different variations of existing maps. Despite the same scenery, it's still a new and different experience.

      According to zh1nt0, we're not getting any new maps until BC2: Vietnam...
      does DICE plans to release any new maps at all? and when?
      DICE is releasing map packs with new game modes on already existing maps. Vietnam will bring new maps to Bad Company 2.

        still these new maps are welcome, in particular atacama desert rush is the vehicle-heavy rush map that was really missing, while the Port valdez conquest one is too prone to one-sided games due to its chokepoints between a and b, and between b and c IMO

          I assume zh1nt0 is a DICE employee, even with that its a strange statement. We get new maps in a paid for expansion pack, what a surprise !

            Maybe that is foreshadowing of them wanting you to pay for separate weapons/vehicle/map expansion packs in the future.

              I was playing on both of the new maps today and they are f'ing awesome.

              There is a new Gatling AA gun called the VATS, and on Port Valdez there is a new Jeep like from the BF2 days that has 4 seats, the driver, the Mortar Gunner (The weapon on the gunboats), the forward facing machine gunner, and a guy who hangs onto the back. Also there is a new stationary shielded mortar on the Atacama Desert rush.

              The last phase of the Atacama Desert rush is insane, with Giant open areas and each team getting 3 tanks. The Port Valdez rush takes place across the ENTIRE rush map, and is full of vehicles, choppers, and anything else you could want. The scope of these two maps felt more like the previous Battlefield titles then anything else I have played before in BC2.

                  I like the sound of that.

                  Maps are in rotation on server 1 now.

                      Apparently the next on tap are Nelson Bay Conquest (in daylight, no less) and White Pass Rush.

                        That would be a very small slugfest of a map.

                          Finally, something new to play with. It's too bad the game didn't ship with a working map editor as I'm sure we'd be swimming in good community maps by now.

                            im cool with the maps...looking forward to them.

                            people are quick to complain that they are the same things reskinned....i agree to some extent but its great to have something new in the rotation. Thanks for posting.

                              I think there is a lot of the map on white pass conquest that isn't utilized.
