We knew that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 would have some sort of DLC on or around its launch next Tuesday. Today, EA sent out a trailer confirming this notion as well as providing us insight into what it will be and how we’ll get it. Bringing the total count to ten, the DLC will include two new multiplayer maps, Laguna Alta, playable in Conquest mode and Nelson Bay, playable in Rush mode. As part of EA’s initiative to screw over used-game retailers, it will be free to anyone who purchases the game new or purchases separately the VIP code, which costs $15.
Coming later in March will be another free map pack, giving players a chance to experience the Arica Harbor map in Conquest mode and Laguna Presa map in Rush mode. This will be available in the same manner as the day-one DLC.
