EA Community Coordiantor Eduardo Vasconcellos announced “The Battle for Hastings” challenge this morning, and it goes like a little something like this: perform 69 million team actions (resupplies, revives, heals, spots, and repairs) in Bad Company 2 and its Vietnam expansion, and Vietnam’s fifth map, Operation Hastings, will be unlocked. The challenge begins with the launch of Vietnam on December 21 and the 69 million will be a cumulative goal for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 gamers.
“The fifth map, Operation Hastings, will add a new avenue for gamers to show their superiority on the Battlefield featuring everything that makes BFBC2 Vietnam amazing: tanks, Jeeps, temples, boats and helicopters all in an environment featuring a distinctive bridge that separates the map into two main areas,” Vasconcellos said in a statement. “Though, it’s not as easy as all that. It’s entirely up to you to unlock this fifth map.”
Operation Hastings is a remake of the 2004 map from the original Battlefield: Vietnam. The new Vietnam expansion is set for release on December 21 and will sell for $15 or 1,200 Microsoft Points.
