Battlefield: Bad Company's two pieces of downloadable content were free. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will have some freebies but DICE intends to release premium DLC as well.
And not content withheld. Oh, and I really hope they don't pull off cheap crap like exclusive tanks, power ups, or guns. That's just unfair and screws with the balancing. Skins, maps, campaign stories, etc. I don't mind, but I hate the game where you have to pay for guns, it's very stupid.
Nah, buying power-ups is still too taboo for anyone to try. The worst they'd probably do is give you unlockables quicker than everyone else - which really isn't a bonus in my view because it's giving you one less goal to attain in the game.
Day 1 dlc isn't really dlc
bet you it's KB sized DLC for some skins and "weapon unlocks".
Don't worry, I'm sure Lamestop has a plan to screw us over.
if premium content is visual goodies only then I can care less, I won't buy it. But if we're talking weapons, and upgrades...I guess that means one of my two pre-orders is gonna be cancelled.
Why on earth do you need two preorders?
I have 2 gaming pc's, a 360, and a ps3. I have a big family and because of their financial situation I'm the source of my brothers and cousins video game entertainment. For the time being I'm gonna wait until they announce what this premium content is before I go and cancel my extra pre-order though. It won't be an issue to me if its just skins or apparel type items.
this is stupid
Starting the game off facing someone with high end unlockables who's just starting off as well isn't always the funnest.
The problem is that you do come up against people who have played for a while, and so know the maps and the ins and outs, and have all the unlockables. So you are faced with an experienced player who also has the benefit of the unlockables. This makes it more difficult for the beginner or casual player, who just can't afford the time to get the unlockables. I would prefer either a level playing field (where everybody has the same weapons, and only skill and game knowledge is the difference). Otherwise I would like the ability to buy the unlockables, so that I can compete fairly with people who can commit the large amount of time to unlocking them. It seems reasonable to me, the other player gets the benefit of the practice they have put in, but not the double whammy of practice AND unlockables. Of course, you then get the problem that people who can afford to spend more get a benefit over those that can't, which is why my real preference is no unlockables - but I would be prepared to pay.
i hate EA there screwing us over with prenuium that should've been on the game if its DAY ONE dlc or a week passed dlc. theres just using DLC as a diversion to make you pay money
It could all fit on one systems/console format but not another... lol
i dont know if i should enjoy what EA is doing or dislikeing what there doing, i think its cool that these trying to give people free dlc but at the same time i think all this free dlc is supposed to be in the game already, i dont know what to believe
There's about a month's worth of time between the code being finalized and the game being on shelves, which allows devs to continue creating content during this period, thus having a bigger "finished" game.
as long and the day one DLC is free it's find by me
Free DLC is always welcome.
just for that reason I would not buy it. If it's free then kudos but for purchase... fvck that.
any guesses at what it can be? i think they'll add a couple guns or a vehicle.
No, definitely won't be that. They'll save that for an expansion pack. Probably weapon skins, clothing options, or something of that sort.
i was thinking skins at first, but then i thought how would they implement a different skin choice for a gun/character/vehicle.. etc correct me if i'm wrong but i dont think there have been different skin selections in past BF games.. i dont think BFBC had any.. am i wrong?
How the hell would an exclusive vehicle work if it's tied to a preset spawn point in-game? Think, people. At most it will be guns/different skins.
yea they are preset, but DICE can make a mandatory patch which will then force u to download the DLC to play.... you know, but i see your point. Hopefully more guns or new perks
releasing paid DLC at a game release is totally and completely wrong..if you dont think so you are just a fool
The DLC will be an Uncharted 2 skins pack!!
Glad to see this game will be supported. I'm picking it up on PS3 and PC. Should be a different experience on both systems do to player counts.
these guys came up with the idea of a storage chest DLC for an RPG game and the media let it effing slide. i bet that bc2 dlc is already in the disc. the only bc2 dlc that i'll buy is the one the will make the graphics look better. as of now this POS is a POS. jaggies. low res textures. pop-ups. in every frame.
PC version will propably have DLC for piracy reasons.Because technically they never said it's for multiplayer so it might be an extra mission therefore requiring you to register for it.Looking forward to the game though and all other DLC has been alright from EA.
quit being cheap everyone, I'm gonna be playing this game all the time when it comes out so ill be happy to pay for some DLC
