Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Recommended Posts

Battlefield: Bad Company 2™ brings the award-winning Battlefield gameplay to the forefront of PC gaming with best-in-class vehicular combat and unexpected "Battlefield moments." New vehicles like the ATV and a transport helicopter allow for all-new multiplayer tactics on the Battlefield. With the Frostbite-enabled Destruction 2.0 system, you can take down entire buildings and create your own fire points by blasting holes through cover. You can also compete in four-player teams in two squad-only game modes, fighting together to unlock exclusive awards and achievements. Battles are set across expansive maps, each with a different tactical focus. The game also sees the return of the B Company squad in a more mature single-player campaign.

 

* Squad Up: Compete as the lone wolf or together in 4-man squads with up to 32 players and multiple game modes including the all new Squad Rush!

* Defining Online Warfare: Become the master of land, sea and air on vast battlefields designed for wide open warfare on Ranked Servers.

* Intense Solo Campaign: Join Bad Company in a fight through deadly jungles, desert cities and vast arctic terrain on a mission to defuse WWIII.

* Tactical Destruction: Create new firing points, chip away enemy cover, and bring down entire buildings full of enemy combatants

Add +fullproc to your start up command to take advantage of all available processors.

Mmm Desert Combat, How much fan was that!!!, I remember months straight of Only playing that Mod.

Would be good if they added them Theme's to Maps..

Different Lighting and Textures to make it look/feel different.

Buying BC2 soon, It seems to not like my XP x64 So I'm going to be dual booting just for this game (and future non-XP compatable's)

Altho I've heard others that is works fine in XP64, but not mine :(

Hmm, I thought Arica Harbour was one of the original 8 maps? Or is it the game mode for arica harbour that its adding?

 

Think I might try using anonymity network to get around the australian lockout, im so bored and need something to play.

Okay so I just had a play around with it using a VPN, now first of all.

 

The server browser is much better. Much quicker to ping up servers, you can also sort them by name/ping/players/map etc.

 

You can also search for servers, so the whole server browser is much more like BF2, which is a big plus.

 

Secondly, I hope no one bought this just for the singleplayer.

 

While it looks alright, while playing it I just got the feeling they were trying way to hard to copy the likes of COD4MW and MW2.

 

Performance improvements seem vast, runs alot better than it used to on mine. Only slow downs I get are destruction related, whether thats cpu or not, I dont know.

 

btw nex, its veteran.battlefield.com not veterans.

Updated the Veteran link.

 

Worked for me: BF2 + Xpacks, BFH, 2142 - but I can reg 1942. You can also register an account on Battlefield Heroes for the veteran program and some demos work as well. I ahve never played 2142 but I reserved my name back before it was released as well.

Comps and Ladders? Yes I think we will get in on that scene again - we were on the GA ladders for BF2 - not that we won but we had fun.

Um dude if you are not actually a clan member you should not be using the [AC-DC] tags, and I can't see no nukejockey anywhere in the members list.

I won't be using the [AC-DC] tags as I am now a member of Lost Division clan.

The only requirement to be an [AC-DC] clan member was that you are an active member of the Atomic forums AND had an interest in playing semi-formal/formal ladder matches if ever it got to that stage.

 

Unless I am mistaken...

That vet program is kinda odd. It's not picking up any of my earlier registered games. I've been using the same email since 1942 and have had all the games registered with EA. And when I log in it just shows Heroes.

what's that you say? Made by EA, and it doesn't work? hmmm.....

 

As for the game, waiting for the final verdict, but if the multiplayer has a server browser, then I'm already tempted XD
