More info on the Cold War map:

 

http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/battlefield_bad_company/archive/2010/11/16/vip-map-pack-7-the-cold-w...

 


 

The third post in our series on the upcoming VIP Map Pack 7 brings you to a small village in the mountains. There sits one of the most tight and intense infantry maps for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

 

Cold War will be recognized by players of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as the place for one of the singleplayer missions. It features an up until now quiet village high up in the mountains, located deep inside Russian territory.

 

The game mode of choice is Rush, with the Russian team deploying a surprise counter attack in order to win back the US controlled area. In stark contrast to the vehicle based gameplay in Heavy Metal, Cold War is solely focused on close quarter combat because of the narrow alleyways in the village. Being a remix of the original singleplayer map, in multiplayer the Russians are attacking from the opposite direction, downhill, with the ultimate goal to push the US team out onto the frozen river.

 

Cold War was specifically chosen for Map Pack 7 because of its wonderful winter setting and multitude of pathways where players can face each other head on. We also wanted a map to complement the bigger, vehicle-based, ones.


I'm not sure how to feel about this one.. could go either way, really.

Actually you've missed quite a few good updates, but in comparison with MP7 they are a drop in the ocean.

Definitely agree..

 

All our recent banter aside, I'm guessing you, like me can't wait to strafe the buildings on Oasis with a helicopter? That and multiple mortar strikes!  I can't wait. Very excited about it. Wish it was out today.

Another update on their blog.  This one's Harvest Day!

 


 

Welcome to the fourth post in our series on the upcoming Vip Map Pack 7. This time, we take you to a beautiful field in autumn time that Bad Company players will recognize instantly.

 

Harvest Day is -- together with Oasis -- one of the most loved multiplayer maps from Battlefield: Bad Company. Back then, it was hugely popular due to its variety of vehicles and alternatives of play styles. This new and remastered version for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is no different. "Harvest Day 2.0" features heavy tanks, CAV's, and fast quads to get around this large-scale map.

 

It's a very vehicle oriented map, with focused hotspots for tight infantry battles. This map can be played with all four gameplay modes, but is at its heart a big Conquest map with 4 cappable flags. We decided to go with a four flags diamond-shaped setup in order to make use of the entire map. We kept the same layout and size of the original BC1 level, and of course made use of Destruction 2.0 and all of the other improvements in our game engine since the first Bad Company.

 

Rush mode starts with a clash between heavy tanks in the open fields. Later on, the action switches to more infantry focused gameplay through the last bases inside the village. Squad Deathmatch and Squad Rush take place exclusively in the village area, where players can make the best out of the numerous destructible buildings and the height difference that the village is displaying.

I think you think right. This is what Demize99 twitted this week:

"BUILD SUCCEEDED: Modifications since last successful build (3559) Good freaking lord."

http://twitter.com/Demize99/status/5233213731512320

I'm pretty positive he was referring to MP7 build.

I hope so. I wonder how close the MP7 and Nam expansion will be though? Surely they won't release them too close together. I would've thought they'd want to maximise profits. For example, the Paytoplay Nam pack doesn't exactly excite me (old style weapons etc) when compared to a free update that I know I'll definitely like.

I assumed it was the VIP maps rather than the Vietnam ones TBH since I thought VIP7 was out first. Maybe it could be both? How big are maps?
