Tokyo Game Show (TGS): Battlefield Bad Company 2 – Vietnam Gameplay

By Alan Ng - Sep 16, 2010

After waiting and waiting since E3 2010, EA and DICE have finally given us a taste of some solid gameplay action for their first multiplayer expansion pack to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, titled Vietnam.

As reported from VG247, DICE Product Manager Kevin O’Leary unveiled the gameplay footage of Vietnam during Tokyo Game Show – which is still ongoing as we speak.

The basic core of Vietnam will consist of the same multiplayer modes but in an old school vietnam setting, with new environments, weapons and character skins. You’ll also get new armor to play around with, and the ability to use new vehicles from the Vietnam era.

Judging from the demo shown at TGS, the gameplay is the same experience from the standard game, but with lots of new character customization to make it feel and look different to the gamer. The level shown during the demo was called Phu Bai Valley and will be one of four included maps in the Vietnam pack.

All in all, it looks pretty solid, but the important thing here is the price point I feel. Check out the gameplay video below and let us know your first impressions of Vietnam.

    the two greatest things about BF Vietnam were the jets with napalm and the music and it doesn't sound like either one is going to be here. This is just a reskinned bfbc2.

      According to DICE's Battlefield Community Manager, you'll hear the songs in vehicles during multiplayer.

      A few new features are easily spotted during the video of this new multiplayer map. Take a closer look at the far left corner of the screen: the map is circular now and surrounded by a compass. This should make it easier to let your friends know which direction you're heading.

      The DLC also contains new character models that you can easily spot around the :30 second mark. And although you can't hear them in this video, Bad Company 2 Vietnam will incorporate licensed music tracks suitable to the Vietnam War era. According to DICE's Battlefield Community Manager, you'll hear the songs in vehicles during multiplayer.
