129w ago - Electronic Arts Community Coordinator Eduardo Vasconcellos has shared a video today spotlighting Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam The Battle for Hastings on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: On December 21, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will arrive on the PlayStation 3 with the low, low cost of $14.99, adding some great new gameplay to an already fantastic shooter.
You may already know that this expansion comes with new weapons, new vehicles, and four new maps, but what you may not know is that one of the most popular maps from 2004's Battlefield: Vietnam will also be included in the bundle.
The fifth map, Operation Hastings, will add a new avenue for PlayStation gamers to show their superiority on the Battlefield featuring everything that makes BFBC2 Vietnam amazing: tanks, Jeeps, temples, boats and helicopters all in an environment featuring a distinctive bridge that separates the map into two main areas. Though, it's not as easy as all that. It's entirely up to you to unlock this fifth map.
To unlock Operation Hastings, we've decided to start up a new community challenge for all of our fans dubbed The Battle for Hastings. To unlock Operation Hastings, our entire audience will need to perform 69 million team actions within Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam.
While this sounds like a daunting task, we're sure our PlayStation 3 fans can handle it, as these actions include resupplies, revives, heals, spots and repairs, allowing for plenty of avenues to achieve this goal.
Get ready to jump back into the Battlefield on December 21, and we'll be counting the support actions until you unlock Operation Hastings for the entire world to enjoy.
