Default New kits for Bad Company 2 - Coming to PC at a price...

On Wednesday 21st April Xbox 360 players can change how their soldiers look on the Battlefield with the Kit Upgrade DLC.

Want some details on what the DLC includes? Of course you do:

There are 4 kits, one for each class, specific unique uniforms and camouflaged weapons gives you a visual edge. I mean what good is a camouflaged soldier if the gun sticks out like a sore thumb?

Recruited strictly from other high-level Special Operations units such as Delta Force and Spetsnaz, the Special Activities groups – SPECACT - are the elite of the elite, used mainly for covert operations and other high-risk missions in areas where conventional troops cannot be used.

With the 4 kit specific unique uniforms and the camouflaged SPECACT personal M16A2, UMP-45, MG3 and M95 SNIPER you have a visual edge on the Battlefield, showing that you’re a force to be reckoned with. The pack also includes 12 new awards and 4 Achievements.


In North America the kit upgrades are only available on Xbox 360 using the Dr Pepper codes printed on special promotional cans.


In Europe and the UK you can get hold of the kit upgrades for:
Xbox Live Marketplace
160 MS points per kit upgrade
440 MS points for bundle pack (all kits)

The kit upgrades will also be coming to PS3 and PC a little later on, we’ll post the exact release dates here as soon as we can.

Hopefully DICE will be nice and add it in a patch instead of having us pay for it. One can hope...

probably end up being free on pc the dlc content can be done via patch and be hosted by third party for free, unlike consoles where ms/sony wants $_$

Actually I think PC outsold consoles for this game. At least during the first week there were as many PC players as both consoles combined. DICE stated there would be a long list of both PAID and UNPAID dlc. Maps will always be free. No word on if the DR Pepper codes will work for PC but I'll prolly pick it up either way. Since the PC version does not have an in game store id be curious to see how we would have to buy it. EA downloader?

For you PC guys. We are working to add this content into the PC version of the game as well but the R7 client patch took most of our time. It is coming though.

For those of you wondering... This content will NOT be free on PC.
Quote:
So you know, we do have a lot more FREE content for you planned as well.
Quote:
The plan is that you buy it through EAStore.com and when you buy it there regardless of where you bought the game it will work with your version

Unfortunately it is that thinking why PC's get neglected by the general gaming development of new content.

Oh come on... Are there any NEW maps(New means new, not port valdez conquest) comming ? If not then I still dont see your point. I want actual new maps& content(expansion) and I am willing to pay for it.

Yes there are new maps coming. That is all I'm saying though :P

This is retarded. Only way I would pay money for the DLC of BC2 is if it actually had new weapons. At level 22 you can have everything unlocked... I haven't played in a while because there is no real incentive to move forward now.

dont get your hopes up about new weapons, the consoles already reached their memory limit for in game items

Bah, I'd never pay for that DLC. As was said before, if there were new guns I would consider it, but with just camo, I don't really care.

Also the thread title is just plain wrong. There is no information regarding the PC release and whether or not it will be free or cost money. This release is only on 360 atm.
