Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is getting a new set of maps, announced DICE just before the release of rival Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops.
VIP Map Pack 7 consists of four new multiplayer maps including "fan favourites" Oasis and Harvest Day. The maps that were in the original Bad Company have been redone complete with "full Destruction 2.0 (buildings collapsing and micro destruction), enhanced graphics and lighting, and remastered ambient sounds and backgrounds."
"The map has not been changed drastically, so returning players will feel right at home the moment they step into this Oasis," says level designer Cristian Pavel.
"The revised parts of the levels are minor. For example, the gold crates in BC1 were located on the rooftops, which we can't have now that entire buildings can collapse. So we had to put the crates on the ground in some places. Things like that."
The other two maps are called Cold War and Heavy Metal and are revised versions of their single player counterparts.
DICE has not announced the release date but says it's "on its way."
