Windows 7: bfbc2 update - vietnam

bfbc2 update - vietnam

just started bad company 2, and a big update is downloading...

also notice on steam that they are pushing the vietnam expansion pack, for 9.99 - start playing 3 days early.

my bc2 was bought in a shop and was non-steam powered - reading the steam forums, it seems that the steam expansion will work on a non-steam base game install - all you get from steam is an unlock code that you've got to type into your EA account...all the data is in the update.

i'm going to wait for the update download to finish (it looks as if it's going to take some time ), then cross my fingers and bash the plastic on steam, and will report back.

I gave up using the updater after it crashed twice halfway through so I just downloaded from one the links and it is going much faster

Not touching Vietnam with a bargepole...its a port as far as I'm aware so miniscule maps with 32 players sucks..I barely play BC2 anymore because the maps are so small..
Waiting on BC3 which apparently is being developed with PC's in mind...that is much bigger maps so at least you wont get killed in spawn area by some sniper sitting half a map away..in theory lol

And btw we are getting 2 new maps for BC2 soonish so I read someplace..hope they are bigger lol

Guys is this just for MP or also an SP Campaign?

Do I need to install BC2 to play it or is it a standalone?

it's MP only, and needs BC2 - it's an expansion,

the new maps are HUGE - bf2 style
