I don’t know about you but I like fighting games like Battlefield to be set in the present time, or even the future. Going back and revisiting times past is ok I guess, but it’s be done over and over again. That being said, of course I’ll be getting this one too.

Just in time for the holidays, DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc.  studio today announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, the digital expansion multiplayer pack for the mega-hit Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available exclusively at the EA Store™ and Steam on December 18, 2010 for the PC and on December 21, 2010 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network. Shooter fans will combat as either a U.S. Marine or as a member of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) through varied, hostile terrain on four all-new multiplayer maps which are brought to life via the award-winning Frostbite engine. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will be available on PC at all participating digital service providers on December 21, 2010.

Even before the release of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, fans have reason to rejoice as DICE releases VIP Map Pack 7 on December 1, 2010.
