I'm pretty sure a steam release is in the works. It is very much more likely after this patch comes out as well. I think they were waiting for it.

Updated QA for v1.50

DICE Producer, Barrie Tingle has been fielding questions in the EA UK forums about the upcoming Battlefield 2 v1.50 patch. Some informaton on how modding will affect the patch is also listed.

I see release dates for UK/Europe. What about NA?
North America will be Tuesday 1st September also but adjusted for time zone differences. So at around 9am Pacific.

Great news that the booster packs will be free. But why there won't be a full 1.5 patch, only incremental as you say 1.41 will be needed? First 540 MB 1.41 and then over 2 Gb 1.5. A full version would be a lot handier.
A full installer wasn't made to get Battlefield 2 v1.0 up to v1.50 due to a change in how updates were made between DICE Canada and DICE Sweden. We could have made one large update but it would have been almost the same size as the game install itself. To solve compatibility issues it was decided to have players update to version 1.41 (or have Battlefield 2 Complete Collection installed from EADM) before running Update v1.50.

if something go wrong. u gonna fix it? +is final working smoother then beta maybe?
Yes and yes

Baza, its up to the ranked server providers to update their servers, do you expect there will be a drop in available 1.41 servers before 1.50 will be made public? If so, for how long do you expect it to last?
Battlefield 2 v1.41 servers will run up to and including Tuesday when the update launches. You may see a drop in server numbers for a couple of hours before the client is released as they switch over server versions. I don't see a big drop, if any, before that time though.

Will the no DVD patch be delivered as an extra addon or will we never see this?
It is part of Update 1.50. There is no extra patch or file needed.

Will the hitreg will be really improved or for that year not many time was spent regarding this issue ?
All I will say is that Hit reg has been improved. We have a lot more happening than Counter Strike (64 players and vehicles for a start ) so it might not be pin point but its it better than it was.

Have you removed the notorious registration of the boosters to one account? Is it now just installing patch 1.5 and then play them?
Install the patch and any account that can play Battlefield 2 can play the Booster Pack maps. No need to link your BF2 soldier to EA.

Battlefield 2 v1.50 and Modding
Since Battlefield 2 v1.50 will come with the booster packs we have also updated our rules on mods.I have taken our existing rules from the old Battlefield.com page and updated to reflect the Euro Force and Armored Fury inclusion in the Update.

Questions raised regarding Update 1.50

I've been wanting to play Battlefield 2 really bad lately but too lazy to reinstall it. Now that the 1.50 patch is finally coming, I cannot wait to finally play it.

Sounds good...an East Coast server would be better for Europeans as far as ping is concerned tho.
