EA contacted me late last night, with a download code for BF2's next booster pack.

Here is what I posted before heading to bed, more to come tomorrow am.

After what seemed like 10 minutes was actually almost 2 hours, I need to get some sleep. I will say this; This is the best booster pack to date and well worth the money!

Before I head off to bed, I wanted to get some of the screen shots I took for the first map I played, called Midnight Sun.

I played all three maps and took notes and screen shots. I will post the other maps tomorrow am.


To view the other screen shots of this map, head on over to our - BF2:Armored Fury, Gallery (http://www.fpsadmin.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=34)

Cool. Do you know when it is to be released? I love BF2, especially with the new 1.3 patch with the vehicle drops.

The vehicle drops blow... and this is why.

OK guys got the rest of my screen shots up now, if for some reason you want to see something closer let me know. I will try and jump on, vote a map change and take some more shots. We can't host our own game right now and can only play on EA's private server.

As for the release, I thought they said, mid June but I could be wrong. I'm awaiting clarification on that but to be honest will not get a return email until after the long weekend.

From my post today:

Well I finally got the rest of my screen shots up in our BF2 Armored Fury Gallery (http://www.fpsadmin.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=34)
The next set of screen shots where taken while playing Operation Harvest, which takes place outside Washington DC.

The last map is Operation Road Rage and my personal favorite. This map takes place on the eastern coast of the US, where you must capture and hold the interstate interchange in the middle of this map.

A big thanks goes out to Dice and EA who supplied us with BF2: Armored Fury so we can pass along these screen shots and info.

I hope they'll end up putting these 'booster packs' onto a DVD as a combined expansion. The EA Downloader just aint for me..

Nice screens, its just too bad with the 1.3 fukup making the game worse than ever.
Its mostly a lot of new bugs and some revived old ones
To me it looks like they finally pulled a novalogic(JO), and patched this game to death

Does anyone know if Armored Fury is single player enabled?

I would assume it would be via the 1.3 patch and bots. However, right now we can only play on the official private EA server.

Last night between 9:30pm-ish and 1:30am (-5 GMT) There was only one or two other people, besides me in the server. While we where trying to look around, you could not pass up the opportunity to "shoot" the other guy :D

Hopefully more play testing today will have more people in the server to look for bugs so we can offer better feedback to Dice\EA.

I want buy anything else EA until / unless they sort out that bloody vehicle drop on Artillery thing. That sucks!

They need no-fly zones for vehicles drops or something.

I have no problem with 1.3 patch. Installed fine and the game plays fine and no lag loading like I've read that others are having the problem.(nana2)

EA still did not fix the REAL bugs... i refuse to buy another POS product for them. I will continue playing SF as its all I really care for anyway as the close infantry combat is more fun IMO.

Agreed, I love the infantry battles.... sometimes its a shame when you having a good firefight ... Support laying down cover fire, medics doing their thing, snipers from an elevated position... spec ops flanking to take out artillery and comms, then all of a sudden a tank pops by and pwns everything. Spoils the fun!

I liked the night maps on SF, but they hardly get rotated anymore due to some other BS bugs EA introduced.
