DICE has confirmed that it will be pushing out another update for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The update is to prepare for the release of VIP Map Pack 7 and the upcoming Vietnam Expansion Pack. While no confirmed release date has been announced for either of these, the patches in the update contain a number of tweaks and fixes for the multiplayer modes that are necessary.
According to sources, the update will be rather large, and PlayStation 3 owner should be able to get the update today; Xbox 360 owners should be able to get the update in the next couple of days. As for PC owners, well… the update is coming soon, but we haven’t a clue how soon that is.
Whispers we hear confirm that DICE is trying to get VIP Map Pack 7 for the upcoming Vietnam Expansion Pack out before the end of the year. We actually doubt that both will make it, and likely if things go as they seem to normally do for DICE, VIP Map Pack 7 might make it out the door before the end of the year; but we suspect that it will be early 2011 before the Vietnam Expansion Pack is made available. We can, however, confirm that our sources tell us that DICE is certainly closer to release than one might expect.
