    Thought i'd claim the thread for the PC. Well it's out on the 2nd March. Game are doing preorders for 25 and 35 (download). EA are saying preorder either through their own site or Game's and you'll get on the beta. I hear beta for the PC is on the 28th Jan. I guess you got to stump up the 35 download version. Anyone know better?

    I've just snapped up a nice looking Sapphire HD5850 card to play it on. Dabs are doing one for 219 and 6.50 back through Quidco. And comes with Dirt 2 to keep me occupied :-)

    Who else is buying this on the PC? Would like to find some common servers with nice regular EG'ers playing.

    Last question, anyone know the number of players on a server? Hoping it's larger than 32 but 32 is what i'm expecting.

    It's 32 :-)

    Can't wait. Is pre-ordering the only way to get onto the beta?

    Isn't it 24, or is that PS3?

    Consoles are 12v12, pretty sure the PC is 16v16.

    I'm getting it for PC and 360 (Amazon's short-lived cheapo price on the console version made that rather easier to stomach).

    32 is actually fine for gold rush mode but possibly a bit low a count for the traditional flag capping mode depending on the overall size of the map. I would imagine the player cap will be modable anyway as I seem to remember the cap getting increased on BF2 by someone.

    The latest EDGE preview seemed to say that the PC version was 24 players, same as the console versions.

    Oops, search failed me last night.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 Thread, smells a little too much of console chatter but what can you do.

    It's 32 players for the PC. It says so on the Dice BFBC2 blog. 24 players for Xbox and PS3.

    Would like to know how to get on the upcoming beta though.

    The official BC2 blog says the usual ways, pre-ordering from certain retailers and other websites. Nothing is solid yet though. Probs be a few days before the beta opens that keys fly out.

    Just looked at the EA store and there seems to be some in-game benefits such as stronger armour. Whats the deal with this, i havent really been paying attention but the idea of some people getting in game benefits sounds a bit shit to me.

    I will be getting this though. Hopefully i will have cleared out my backlog of games by then

    Any benefits from buying from certain retailers will just mean you get some unlocks a bit early, it won't make an awful lot of difference really.

    anyone know a good place to pick up a key?

    I don't really want to preorder since I'm not sure my PC is up for it... :(

    can we lock this thread or rename it to PC Battlefield Bad Company 2. It hovers as embarrassment to me and EG's search facility.

    Hows everyone finding the performance on PC? The xbox version feels sluggish to me so I'm thinking of getting this one on PC. I've got a 2.6 C2D and a 5750 ati card. Any use?

    On a 4870 and a Quad Core here, Aaron, and it's flying along at 1920*1080 / High everything / HBAO & AA turned off. Really enjoying it.

    Not managed to get a beta key yet, so was wondering if any of the folk who are playing could give their thoughts on the field of view in this. Does it have the unpleasant 'zoomed-in' effect that exists on the console versions?

    Yeah I've got a level 5 veteran status, but hadn't heard anything about being offered access to the BC2 beta or anything like that.

    I'm just trying to decide wether to go for PC or PS3 version, it seems they are not doing a PC demo though. Battlefield had always been better on PC, but I just had concerns that Bad Company 2 might suffer if it was more of a console port instead of a 'proper' PC Battlefield game.

    Just pre-order from play. You'll get a key then you can just cancel it, no fuss.

    And as for your concern about it feeling like a console game... they are well founded :(

    There's nothing wrong with it, it's just not precise enough for PC gaming. The weapons are all chunky and big and the cross hairs take up half the screen. Technically it's fine if you have the power, under the hood is PC, where the game design in console.
