VIP Map Pack 6

#1 Edited by gold_n_eye (82 posts) -

Since Map Pack 6 is coming out next week, August 18th to be precise, any news on what the 2 maps are? I know there won't be any new maps, but I was wondering what 2 in-game maps will be part of the new map pack? 
 
 P.S. Also, does anyone know if this will be the last VIP Map Pack before they start releasing actual map packs with new maps - other than Vietnam?

Yes you are right, tomorrow's map pack is squad-based. Here is a quote from badcompany2blog.com: 
 
" For Map Pack 6, it’s the Panama Canal as squad death match and Laguna Presa as squad rush "

I believe a DICE representative has stated that there will be no new maps until the Vietnam expansion.

That's a bummer! I was hoping they would release some new maps instead of recycling old ones, playing 8 maps over and over again gets a little boring after a while.

This was also my reaction, but I jumped into some squad DM this evening and had a surprisingly good time. It's a differently paced mode, but I liked it much more than I thought I would.

I want to see the global statistics page for total time played per map and per mode per map.

@gold_n_eye: If you go to the download page ingame, it is the last free DLC. I think there's one more paid DLC, and I'm assuming that is Vietnam.

Well, it's been a while since I really last played squad deathmatch, I might give it a try again. :)
