Hot on the heels of the announcement that Medal of Honor is getting an open multiplayer beta beginning later this week, publisher EA hit us with another surprise: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is getting a DLC expansion pack this winter, and it'll apparently be a followup to the underrated Battlefield: Vietnam.
We haven't seen anything so far other than a brief teaser trailer, which opened with Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son," accompanied by this somewhat idyllic vista:
The little speck in the middle there quickly revealed itself to be a helicopter, which flew over and faded into the title splash. We then got to see what the helicopter was flying toward:
Above: Oh, that looks ominous
Then came a closing teaser screen accompanied by a taunt from Hanoi Hannah, the North Vietnamese radio propagandist whose ominous recorded lines practically made her the narrator of 2004's Battlefield: Vietnam.
So it seems to be a spritual sequel, at least. With any luck, we'll see more of it on the show floor in the next few days.
