As a part of Project Ten Dollar, EA’s new strategy to motive first-hand purchases, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will offer two maps as release-day downloadable content.

The two maps are Laguna Alta, a Conquest map, and Nelson Bay, a Rush map, bringing the total number of multiplayer maps to ten.

These maps will be unlockable with one of the “VIP” codes that ships with every new retail version of the game. Another code will be included which unlocks another two maps in late March. They are Arica Harbour (Conquest) and Laguna Presa (Rush).

For those who buy the game second-hand at a later date, these map packs can be downloaded for USD $15 through BFBC2’s in-game store.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be released in New Zealand on the 5th of March.
