Battlefield: Bad Company 2
DICE Wishes You a Happy New Year By Unlocking BC2 Vietnam's Operation Hastings Map
Written By
View author's profile

To ring in the new year, DICE announced that they have unlocked the Operation Hastings map early for Bad Company 2: Vietnam console players, after PC players kicked everyone else's ass and won the Community Challenge.

Operation Hastings, a remake of the 2004 Battlefield: Vietnam map, was initially the reward for 69,000,000 team actions in DICE's excellent Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion. Now, it is yours as a special new year treat.

"Since we want to start this new year with a big of a bang as we ended it," says the Battlefield Blog, "we are enabling Operation Hastings for the PS3 and Xbox 360 as of today!"

So if you've had time to shake off that hangover - incidentally, I have not - then fire up those consoles and get your Vietnam on.

Not got Bad Company 2: Vietnam yet? Why on earth not, it's rather excellent, after all.

[Thanks Bryce]

If only console gamers cared less about kills and more about teamwork. This however doesn't apply to ALL console gamers. There are some that think teamwork is the way to win.

@#9 - I think it's more of the fact that people might have been getting annoyed that other platforms have the map and they want what they paid for. Maybe they saw the numbers waning and wanted to give them another kick start? I'm fairly sure they didn't doubt the ability of console gamers =P

Well i just got back from work after going out last night - i staggered in and i still managed to squeeze a quick game in to help the xbox platform win the map - Now today i come home and its a new map to go and devour :) - thank you very much Dice and EA -
that's very kind...very kind indeed ! lol
Just want to say that PC community probably hacked it somehow ! and we were ahead of PS3 - just goes to show XBOX RULES ! -

Kinda sad that they unlocked earlier, if people bitch and moan about it all they gotta do is chip in and help.

The AQ event in World of warcraft unlocked after the entire server had helped out to reach the goal, on some servers it took them way longer then the high pop servers but even blizzard didnt bitch out on that one

Xbox gamers were half way to reaching the target amount and PS3 Gamers were very close. No exact numbers were given. It took PC gamers 10 days to reach the target amount. Maybe the devs and publishers would have thought the way 9 thought if it was a couple months since the expansion came out but I agree with Webb on what he said.

@13 Wow, where did you get that info because you have no clue wtf your talking about. There was a counter on the BFBC2 website. It took PC gamers 5-6 days, the 360 community was at 42 million team actions when I checked it last night, the PS3 community was at 32 million team actions.

Btw anyone who wants to see that counter its at.

http://www.battlefieldbadcompany2.com/vietnam/battleforhastings

I wasn't surprised that the PC community won, I think they can have more people per match playing than the consoles.

@#5 You have not met the RK1 Gamers. We might not be the best in the world at kills but you put 8 of us on a 12 man team and you can bet your ass that we will work together to get the job done.

In Fact I'll admit I suck at this game, I have a 1.04 K/D ratio according to BC/BS But I always pull my weight as a medic / assault guy.

@15 This has been all over GT forums how PC gamers once again triumphed over console gamers. http://www.gametrailers.com/news/operation-hastings-unlocked/2829. I do apologize though I wrote my info wrong about PS3 being very close. @22 like I said before caring only about kills does not apply to every console gamer. There are very few though that will help out the team over getting kills.

That's nice of them to unlock it early. I don't see why ppl are getting worked up and seeing it as a bad thing. It isn't as though they took down the counter, just gives us another map to play on to earn the 69 million squad points.

Also @15 we do have the ability to have big battles thanks to dedicated servers however that does that change the fact how fast we got this when a lot of people say PC gaming is dying. If we were "dying" to achieve something like in such a short amount of time shows how elite PC gamers are at teamwork reguardless of how many additional players we can have during a battle. ^__________________^ I do not know where you get YOUR information from sir. Maybe I can show you a PC pamphlet and we can add another nonbeliever to our ranks. I would happy to show you and introduce you to our elite gaming.

I agree with you guys...nothing makes me more upset than hearing the final shrill of the MCOM about to blow and seeing 5 blue markers all around it, with no one defusing. I am jealous of the "8 man team"...can't imagine what would happen if I ever played with more than the one or two friends in my squad!

...my K/D is slightly positive, but I don't see why that stat would make someone "suck" when it is an objective. support based game. If you are a medic and die 3x, but revive 20 ppl, your K/D might be negative, but you definitely contributed! My K/D is low due to playing a lot solo, and getting murdered on the long run from the spawn, not to mention I am the guy who is always trying to set/ defuse the charges!! As for PC gaming, it's not for everyone, but definitely has some major advantages. Prices, in general, are lower for software, and DLC is in most cases FREE. Controls are more precise, but honestly, we all know that all it will take to turn the tide is for MS to allow a mouse/ keypad controller, and PC gaming will be finished.

@28 you also need to add dedicated servers for something for Microsoft to do. But I really think its cute how thats the only thing you think Microsoft needs to do and PC gaming will be dead. Maybe you also didn't hear but Microsoft plays a huge part in PC gaming aswell. PC can emulate any console with a decent rig and haha lemme tell you it doesn't take much to emulate an Xbox 360 on PC. I jest though It does take a little more then that. Also reminds how a fellow PC gamer hacked kinect to be playable on PC. In reality your "affordable consoles" *cough* $60 dollar games will die out considering PC is a generation ahead of consoles. PC can do anything a console can do AND better. In the end you are paying more for consoles then you are for PC. This is a fact sir. I have many more pamphlets for anyone interested.

@25 First off, I got my ACCURATE info from the BFBC2 website counter and I'm not pushing an agenda or trying to convince someone something else is better, to each their own on what they like. I never said I think PC gaming is dieing anywhere, or that one platform is better than the other. I own a 360, PS3, and a PC and enjoy all of them.

"If we were "dying" to achieve something like in such a short amount of time shows how elite PC gamers are at teamwork", "I would happy to show you and introduce you to our elite gaming."

Your not doing any favors for PC gaming or PC gamers by having an elitest attitude and looking down on people who play consoles.

@31 Sir I am not putting anyone down on how PC is better then consoles, I also appreciate your mature attitude. I also own an Xbox 360 and Wii. I have to say though I am a fan of Nintendo for their great innovations. When I am talking about PC though I am talking about truths not opinions. However you are right "To each their own on what they like". I respect your decision on gaming but forgive me for trying to help you make a much better decision in money saving and optimal gaming. One last thing when I mentioned PC gaming is dying I said people I did not say you. ^_________________^

ArmyDeltaLeader... you are WRONG about PC gaming being cheaper. It may be better (graphics, frame-rate)... but it costs a LOT of money for a good PC system to play the latest games - and even more money to have a state-of-the-art PC that won't be obsolete and not able to play new games (well) in a couple years. My PC will barely run some of the current games, and some games not at all - unless I do a major upgrade. For the cost to upgrade (or buy a whole new PC)... I could buy the latest XBOX, Kinect, and about a dozen games. [NOTE: My PC runs all the latest apps just fine... just not the games!]

I don't have to upgrade my XBOX 360 to play games (except for Kinect games... though there's nothing worth playing on it right now). I do NOT have to read the back of a 360 game box to see if my 360 is powerful enough to handle it - it will always play!

This thread is is about the Vietnam expansion Operation Hastings Map. If you can't keep your comments only on that topic instead of trying to start a console/PC war... then stop posting!! Pamphlets... seriously? Any chance it was written by a PC gamer?!!

@Webb Facts not opinions. Do PCs have better performance? Yes. Are they better for gaming? Yes. Are they a generation ahead? Yes. Now if I asked what do you prefer? That would be an opinion. @39 I don't need to read the box of a PC game either I use Steam. I will state this again as I have before many times. PC is a money saver. I bought my PC 6 months ago. It cost me $654 I can run the most demanding games with highest settings possible including AA. Perfect example ARMA 2 the most graphically demanding game ever released to the public. I won't have to upgrade for years to come even when the "Xbox 720" or "PS4" is released. If you think $654 is too expensive you need to see how much MS is charging for DLC and games that cost $60. These things I can get on PC are a lot cheaper or free on PC. In fact Steams holiday sale this year I must have bought over 100 games spending no more then 70 dollars. This includes Medal of Honor, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit and Fallout: New Vegas. And of course our pamphlets were written by PC gamers. Do you think we would have Console gamers write our pamphlets? Sir I am a PC emissary merely spreading the word of our facts and your delusions. ^___________________^ Would you care to see one of my pamphlets good sir? I have one handy! I can open it up and you and I take a gander together and see what great wonders await you in our world.

I have no idea why, but I find Vietnam sort of boring... no more Onslaught maps. Onslaught was a lot of fun, and my friend and I were pretty much only looking forward to this because of that. BTW, it's not amazing because they should released at least five maps by now. It should have been free, not $15.

On topic though because I have strayed and I apologize once again. Console gamers need to shape up and learn to work together as a team or competitions like this will always be won by PC gamers. Operation Hastings should be good practice for you guys.

@#42 - You're cherry picking what you want to use for your argument and ignoring everything else. It's your opinion that they're a generation ahead. It's your opinion that they're better for gaming.

How about answering these questions while you're at it:

Are consoles more accessible than PCs? Are they more cost effective (without bringing your argument in that your custom built PC cost $600 or using Steam sales where you bought games that were 10 years old for $1)? Are they more suited for the living room? Yadda yadda... we can all pick the best aspects of something and ignore the rest.

Opinions are a fickle thing and unless you're stating fact, it's an opinion, i.e. "ARMA 2 the most graphically demanding game ever released to the public."

I find it ironic that you call yourself a "PC emissary merely spreading the word of our facts and your delusions," yet you spread delusions yourself. I call that a fanboy.

@44 Without knowing how many people are in each community, you can't really say one community works together more than the the others just because they reached a certain number first. Look at the 360 community for instance, they had 10,000,000 more team actions than the PS3 community. I don't think the 360 community works together better than the PS3 community, I think there's alot more people playing Battlefield on the 360 than there is on the PS3. Lets not forget anyone can twist numbers to their needs and that this wasn't a PC vs console contest or the PS3 and 360 numbers should have been combined.

I can agree in saying "they are better for gaming" is an opinion and I would like to apologize for that. However in saying they are a generation ahead is absolutely true and I will stand by this fact. These days when we are talking about a generation ahead we mean graphics so let me reword that a little bit. In the graphics department a well built PC is graphically more powerful then a console. This is a fact. Removing costs of games from both the PC and console which one costs less? The console of course. But what are you going to do on your console without games? Nothing execpt if cycling through the dashboard is fun then by all means have a blast. With PC though I can surf the internet and post things like this on forums, watch movies, download music and games even! For free. Not to say I support pirating because I do not but for the sake of making a point this is a fact. Your question "Are consoles more accessible than PCs"? This is opinion based and I will respond in saying Consoles are more accessible then PCs are. Now if what I read is correct what is wrong with a 10 year old game? Unless all you care about is graphics then I take high offensive to this. Graphics DO NOT AND WILL NOT make the game. This is an opinion but one I will always go by and never change. When I said ARMA 2 is the most graphically demanding game let me also add it is also the most advanced simulation in the world. ARMA was first used for military training purposes until it was released publicly as a PC game sometime after. Anyone that would care to look that up is free to and see that I am right, however you may come across information on the NASA and Air Force project to create a simulation for pilots. But that has since been cancelled due to costs. I have not spread any delusions in anything I have posted. I have been careful in what I have said and made some mistakes in wording and I once again apologize for that.

@48 6 months ago I did not own any PC only an Xbox 360, Wii and DS. I'm not sure what you trying to say exactly though. It is my no means obsolete as you say. If my computer can run ARMA 2 with everything at Ultra settings and AA at its highest I am by no means obsolete. This is of course graphics power so I will go on to say my computer uses 56% of its CPU running the game and my RAM being used with 8 gigabytes is only being used by 20%. I also run the game at 60+ frame rates. Also @49 What you said is true I do not know how many gamers are in each community so I have no way of knowing but this was in fact a competition to see who would unlock the map first.

I thought only Koreans played starcraft on the PC there are other games since when? Thanks for the information makes me want to go out and drop a cool 2000 bucks that has been burning a hole in my pocket for a couple of months. Thank you Armydeltaleader I have now seen the error of my ways.

Sort of on Topic
Its nice that it is unlocked and I hope more content comes out for Battlefield I guess I will play that until the computer comes in from being ordered, I hear it is becoming obsolete as it ships

No need to spend $2000 on a PC and If you build your own you spend a lot less then lets say buying from Alienware. Its an opinion but with instructions that comes with the motherboard building your own is no problem however setting up a console is no trouble at all. Ordering the parts for a PC can be confusing if you don't look up the right things but google is a great tool that helped me.

@50;

Sit down, idiot. You're giving us all a bad name. A: ArmA 2 isn't the 'most graphically demanding game on PC', it's the most poorly optimised game on the PC market. I've racked up 600+ hours on ArmA 2 and Arrowhead.

Also, VBS2 is more advanced than ArmA 2 and is widely used by global militaries for simulation including the USMC, the Australian Army and JFK Special Military Center. Oh, and only parts of ArmA were used for simulation in military facilities - I know this because I've worked out on the military bases using it.

Research your topics a bit better before you start talking, because as I said you're just giving the decent PC players a bad name.

And Dan is right, consoles are more accessible and cost effective, not to mention other stuff like catalogs/support etc. Having my $2,000 computer is cool, but my $400 investment into the Xbox 360 has been more cost effective since I bought it 5 years ago.

@ ArmyDeltaLeader - I think your the one with delusions about PC's being a generation ahead. It has the potential to be yes but it isn't. Consoles are clearly more accessible as Webbs says that is why they are so more popular then PC's and over the lost 10 years the PC platform has been losing so many games to consoles. Most developers don't give a shit about PC at the moment because they would make no were near as much money as they do on consoles. The potential is there but its not happening. Now from all the combined responses to you I think we have by now burned your ass and you must recognise!

@56 ah yes I have seen you around here before posting your "knowledge" and signing your name after everything you type. PC gamers refer to you as goon someone who follows around mods. Example: Goon: I worship you oh great moderator what is thy bidding? ^_____________^ You are so silly. I will continue spreading PC wisdom throughout this series of tubes and give more people a change to read our pamphlets and come towards the light of PC gaming.

You couldn't be further from the truth. I've been in trouble numerous times for flaming people in the chats etc. I don't follow 'mods' around, I just respect what Webb and the rest of the Staff do and I look up to them in both a professional (I write) and personal (I game) sense.

The harsh truth is, you're an idiot, and an illiterate moron at that. You've got no decent train of thought or logical points and every time someone calls out one of your 'truths' you end up having no evidence to back it up.

@60 Webb did point out things I got wrong and I admitted to them. However no one else not even you good sir pointed anything out when supposedly "calling out my truths" You tried hard though and maybe you want a merit? I don't know what about a pamphlet? I have a couple left. I am running out though =/ A lot of people are interested.

@65 lol you send me a random article stating that PC games have better graphics capability then consoles which everyone already knows and that some dude from crytek which is a heavily PC oriented developer thinks PC's are generations ahead? I'm so sorry about my stupid comment I wil now repent my ways, clearly PC's are much better as that is why a previously PC exclusive franchise is coming to consoles. Consoles are in my opinion a generation ahead with things like Kinect and all this new technology and innovations coming to them and not PC, now you might just say they could develope something the same for PC and just plug it in... but guess what they could also give xbox 360 an 8 gig ram with the best graphics card around but they don't because not everyone can afford spending so much, unlike you who I guess invests tons of money in an at the moment OBSOLETE PLATFORM. What is all this shit about pamphlets anyway, you are one of the biggest trolls I have read.

@anyonewhosballsdeepinthisofftopicthread. i dont see the big deal in this whole PC console war. they both have their positives and negatives. not sure why its necessary to "convert" someone to a specific system. reading all these posts ab the whole ordeal really puts off an immature vibe and its things like this that gives gamers in general a bad name. hell i dont care what system anyone uses, as long as they enjoy it is all that matters. In the end were all just fans trying to get our game on.

OT: BAALLLIIIN love me some vietnam, glad to see this map unlocked. hopefully Dice will add some new content throughout 2011

@69 (lol 69 :P, yes I know i'm childish) This talk involving PC just made me think of PC gaming and I was wondering if the news on this site was going to get a little more into Games for Windows Live next year because it looks as if microsoft is finally coming back to PC gaming with the service with some awesome IP releases next year and hopefully more to come. So it would be good if you guys started covering it, especially if it means I get to see more of that awesome profile pic of yours...

I'm sooo tired of hearing everyone argue about which is better....PC or Console, 360 or PS3. Who cares? A true gamer is in for for the games, not the system they play it on. Grow up.

geez these are long posts on this subject. heres my 2 cents: the one and only reason the PC unlocked operation hastings first and by far before the consoles...KIDS ! PC does not have kids running around on them. every kid owns a PS3 or an XBOX. hell i got 2 kids and 3 XBOX's. they play it and i see the way my youngest plays. he just runs around, he trys, but isnt very good, you all know what i mean. everybody just let it go. so what who unlocked,when, by how much...its unlocked. play it and enjoy it cause i think its the best Vietnam map they made. oh and DICE... we need more maps for Vietnam...NOW !!!

Vietnam would be better if they took out the damned flamethrowers. Seems like EVERY time we're defending, here comes 4-5 guys storming the base with flamethrowers. Lame. 1 I can understand, but 3/4 of the team has em? It's a noob weapon, nerf it or get rid of it.

Has anyone actually found out how PC gamers got the map so fast? Are there really that many more PC players? Because I wouldn't think that would be the case, but I guess I'm wrong. I didn't think that one group was going to absolutely dominate that 69 million like the PC crowd did. I would just really like to know if a bunch of PC nerds sat in a corner, shooting at the ground and resuppling for 12 hours.
