It may come free with preorder. BC2 came with some free maps but it just sucked online MP didn't work for some days on PS3 version after launch. KZ3 came with an additional map pack too for preorder. Regardless, DICE knows how to make map packs.

Old maps should be free, end of story.

pfft tell that to Activision

SuperStrokey11232579d ago

Well i dont know about free as they had to take time to convert them to the new engine and what not and that takes time and resources. However, they should be super super cheap. Like a buck a map or something.

@Guigsy, it's not like they're just re-releasing already made maps, they have to make them from scratch, just with the same layout as the classic BF2 maps. It's not BFBC2 maps.

guigsy2579d ago

Well obviously, but at the end of the day its the same maps people have been playing for over 5 years. It would be foolish of them to charge us, like Activision did with Modern Warfare 2.

All battlefield BC 2 maps were great. But make them DLC atleast EA, we all know youre good at that.

Sort of like Killzone 3's retro map pack?

Im sorry but maps being different at launch is stupid. I didnt like that they did it for KZ3 and i dont like that they are doing it for BF3...

ExPresident2579d ago

I don't really care how they do it with the maps, doing it how BFBC2 was would be ideal with them all being free if you bought it new.

The only major complaint I had about the maps was when I would be in a group with a buddy who didn't have the maps, rather than only pair us with the maps he had it would load us into a game where he didn't have the map and just boot him from the group, which is just stupid.

For a moment therei thought it said crackland

DeadlyFire2578d ago

I say release a SDK. Then Gamers will have tons of maps. Well PC wise anyway.
