Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta Map

A 32-player map will be available in the closed beta. The game mode will be “Rush” in a snow environment. Theme: Vehicle and Infantry.

Back Story The battle for Port Valdez is fought alongside the waterline towards a great oil industrial landscape in the Alaskan mountains. Using basically everything they’ve got the Russian forces are launching an airborne assault to knock out the oil industries in the area. In their arsenal there are Main Battle Tanks as well as fast-moving Quad Bikes and mobile armored AA. It’s a vehicle focused battle, but with plenty of infantry combat.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Mod Tools

For now, there will be now no Mod tools, mainly because of the 3D engine. Later on, we can expect to see some extra and probably some Mod tools for BFBC2! It would be a shame if they would not release any Modding tools for such a great game.
