DICE flipped the switch today on public stat tracking for the Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam"Operation Hastings" map unlock challenge. The developer is now counting down to the 69 million team actions (per platform!) required to unlock the new map on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. What's a team action? Think: healing, spotting, repairing, reviving and resupplying comrades.
A similar, more homicidal challenge was issued when Battlefield 1943 became available on consoles, with Xbox 360 players completing it shortly before those on PS3. As for PC, they're not only still waiting to unlock that map, but the game in general... yeah, we should check up on the status of that again.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will add four new multiplayer maps, as well as 15 new weapons and six vehicles, all congruous with the new 1960s locale and Bad Company 2's universal experience point system. Among other era-specific items, you'll gain access to the M79 grenade launcher, the Navy SEAL XM22 machine gun, the American Huey helicopter and the Russian T54 tank.
The DLC, which requires the Bad Company 2 game disc, will retain the game's universal experience points and add ten new Achievements and Trophies.
