If, for whatever reason, you haven’t picked up Battlefield: Bad Company 2, I would like to welcome you to the club. I too have yet to pick up this amazing concoction of entertainment that has been bestowed upon us by the folks over at EA and DICE. Luckily, we aren’t too late to the party as a new release has been spotted over at well-known retailers.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition has surfaced on retail sites Amazon and ShopTo.Net, appearing to contain all the downloadable content released thus far, which includes all the VIP content, the limited edition unlocks and the four-player Onslaught Mode, as well as DICE’s online-only Xbox Live Arcade and PSN game, Battlefield 1943. Quite a bit of awesomeness tucked into a tiny little package, I say.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are listed at the comfortable price of $59.99 on Amazon, and is scheduled to release August 31st. While some of you are probably yelling at your monitors “This is the same price for a regular game!” note that Onslaught – which is included in the Ultimate Edition – is actually $10 as DLC. Think of it as a freebie, if you would.
For those of us who haven’t picked up this adored first-person shooter, this might be worth purchasing. Especially since my colleagues have been ridiculing me as I continue to play the likes of Modern Warfare 2, while they entrench whatever attention span they have left on Bad Company 2 – and I’m tired of owning alone.
