EA has announced a DLC multiplayer expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 set in Vietnam. It will be released in winter 2010.
A very short teaser was shown of jungle action set to a Creedence Clearwater Revival tune. The press release confirms that you'll be able to play as either US Marines or North Vietnamese Army.
Meanwhile, Medal of Honor was confirmed for a 12th October release date, and Dead Space 2 will be released on 25th January 2011 (28th in Europe).
A multiplayer beta for Medal of Honor will open on 21st June across all three formats: PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
A live 24-player multiplayer match was played on stage at EA's press conference. It took place in a tight, close-quarters urban map in the dusty streets of Kabul and looked very reminiscent of Modern Warfare multiplayer.
These and other EA action games will be tied together by a new web loyalty scheme called EA Gun Club. Gun Club will reward gamers for playing EA games with exclusive news, early demo and beta access and in-game items (guns, probably).
A trailer soundtracked by Steve Lee's country song "I like guns" showed games like Battlefield Heroes and Dead Space 2 as well as Bad Company and Medal of Honor.
Bad Company 2 VIPs who sign up to Gun Club and pre-order Medal of Honor will get early beta access.
