And that's why I won't buy it... simple choice eh?

Nice that they put some 1943 stuff in. Wouldn't mind it the other way around and having an apache in 1943 XD

Jup - done deal!
 
I love the first game. This one's just gonna hit the ball out of the park.
 
Homerun DICE!

Fuck yeah! Now thats a pre order.

BTW.
 
This is the 'Day 1 Advantage' limited edition. It won't be more expensive, than the normal edition. It will just be a limited print with a couple of unlocks right out of the box.
 
It's an incentive to buy 'Day 1' for the general audience, as well as a goodie for us die-hard fans, who will pick up the game 'Day 1' for certain. Also, the advantage afforded by the unlocks will only last for the first couple of hours of online multiplayer gameplay.
 
Same price. Less unlock hazzle. Most awesome online multiplayer FPS ever. That's all.

"I'm guessing this is all perk stuff that everyone will have eventually, right? ..Right?I think there are a lot of people expecting huge things from this game, especially after the MW2 PC meltdown. "

Yeah it is.

This is like the Gold Edition of Bad Company.  Everyone will be able to unlock every gun through playing the game.
 
As far as preorder bonuses go, this seems to be doing it the right way.
 
(And yeah...premium price?)

This has got to be some kind of joke, vehicle alternate fire is a limited edition feature.... this makes the multiplayer offically lame. Game is going to be so broken.

Posted by Bucketdeth

Man everytime I see a video for this game I want it even more.

Posted by cooger10
@LostProphecy18: all of these are going to be in the regular version, your just going to have to unlock them if you buy the regular version instead of getting them from the start

Garbage.

I get it. 
They're just making it more real. 
You know... in war, the side who can afford more / better / bigger weapons & equipment is the side that has the advantage. 
 
Pony up, or play as a third-world country.

Posted by Nogert

 WTF, so unless you pay more than the game is worth you get nerfed.
Being able to see through walls in a vehicle? because you payed extra.. fuck off tbh.

Posted by Ineedaname

On the console for me ranked games always seemed broken in the first, so I could never unlock anything, once in a blue moon I'd have a working game, then maybe just maybe stay in long enough to get something but even so, it made it difficult.

Posted by PISTOLcm
@Nogert: Maybe you should do some research, or take your own advice.
 
If you order this version, you don't have to unlock these in game. If you don't order this version, you have to rank up to unlock these.
 
Either way you can get them.

Grrr...


 
  • It's the same prize as the standart edition.
  • It's just a limited print for 'Day 1' customers.
  • It isn't more expensive.
  •  Every unlock is available to everybody.
  •  Limited Edition Customers will have a slight advantage for 'Day 1' gameplay, because they get a couple of unlocks out of the box.
  •  Standard Edition Customers  unlock everything by ranking up. On 'Day 2' the LE customer's slight advantage will be mitigated.
  • 50 ranks for 50+ unlocks (getting six of these early, won't make a difference for much longer than a couple of hours)
 
This is the official pressrelease...
 
 The Limited Edition game features six special gameplay unlocks that give players a tactical advantage on the battlefield. Available while supplies last, the Limited Edition version of the game will be sold at the same price as the standard version of the game with participating retailers in North America on March 2, 2010 and in Europe on March 5, 2010.
 
Read it and understand, that there comes no harm from this Limited Edition. It's actually pretty fucking cool. Whatever man. Seriously - who gives a fuck. The game is gonna be brilliant. This is just a sweet little bonus for us die-hard fans, who pre-order and buy the game 'Day 1'.

I think I'm Battlefield-ed out.   "Motion sensor away."   Meh.  I'm the first to spam motion sensors and run around with a knife, but I think it's the dumbest aspect of the game.  And now they put them on tanks... :(

I love how 50% of the posts are from people who complain about stuff that isn't even true.. Get your facts right first before you start to flame.. lol

Edited by MrKlorox
  I know I'll be buying this and ranking up to 50 the old fashioned way regardless, so these incentives aren't enough to sway somebody like me to preorder.
 
I just don't know whether to get it for 360 where my friends are, or PC where Battlefield belongs. If I get both, there's no way I'll get to lvl 50. I guess if I get the 360 version, I'll pre-order for the limited print. If I get it for PC, it'll be a download copy so the print won't matter. 
 
And for the sake of bumping:

Part of it has to do with the blatant misinformation attached to the video by Brad. "Here's what you get for plunking down a premium price," is a straight up fucking lie.

@MrKlorox: Well, I'm not the pre-ordering type, but when I didn't pre-order BFBC1, I got screwed with all the copies being gone except the Gold Edition, which was nice, but cost me $70. This LE version isn't any extra in price, it's probably going to be just for the pre-order people and a few more after that.
 
That being said, I'll be getting it first day when I pre-ordered it just the other day. And these special unlocks aren't going to be anything special to me, anyway. In BFBC1 I've got enough EXP to rank up to max 10 times over (around 370,000 points). So I think I'll be fine, I'll probably hit max rank in a few short days.
 
But yeah, EA and DICE made a good move (though it's been mis-understood already), they're giving incentive and a few small bonuses to established fans, but not f-ing over newbs.
 
Also, since this is Limited Edition, I wouldn't be too surprised if this is just the entire first print run of the game, I mean.... on first day, EVERYONE will have these unlocks already. So, very few will actually be "screwed" it seems.
Posted by TiE23
@Nogert: Well, the seeing through walls thing may be a BS representation. In BFBC1 there were Recon units that would draw player's locations on the mini-map. Also, tanks could always do that, they just weren't as powerful.
 
Also, I wouldn't be surprised, that by the way they are talking about the LE version, that if you buy the standard version on the first day, you can probably play one match and have enough EXP to unlock that tank radar. So, no worries.

If anything i hope its just early access to the perks leaving everyone else to have to grind for them.  most of those( or something like them)  were selectable perks in the first game, just require you to level up and buy them.

Okay it is the same price as the normal and its for all the people who buy the game near its release! Get over it, its for those who pay full price for the game. To fight USED GAME SALES guys.

"For the same price as normal? So many other companies would try to milk at least $10 on this. Good on them. This is why I respect DICE as a developer. "


And I agree

I hate these Ltd edition extras.  but I'm glad to know that they can be unlocked.

Posted by Brad

Hey, as pointed out in these comments, the LE version of this game is the same price as the regular -- it's just a while-supplies-last sort of thing. Sorry for the error, and thanks to FUPA11 for bringing it to my attention.

Posted by chapman12

man i sooooo want those 1943 weapons and also the game is looking great 
Posted by squidracerX

yeah if it doesn't unlock in regular edition they might as well have said:
 
"L.E. bonus, you can be the only ones to play multiplayer, because no one who buys the regular edition will be able to compete with you!"

Edited by MrKlorox

Seeing how EA responded to the Fight Night 4 thumbstick outrage, if enough of a stink is raised by the second edition purchasers they will likely unlock these as standard.  
 
@Brad: Thanks for the update. Sorry for coming off like a dick in my anger at the confusion.

Edited by Donos

Edit: Apparently, most of the stuff in this package will still be unlockable through regular gameplay, the limited edition just gives it to you immediately. I retract (most) of my rage.

Wow, it's the BFBC1 limited edition BS all over again. Hopefully they get some sense slapped into them and fix it... again.

Posted by Media_Master

Looks great!

Posted by FrankCanada97
@FuzzYLemoN: What's BS about it? You pay same price as normal and everyone is going to unlock them eventually.
Posted by FuzzYLemoN
@FrankCanada97: 
I didn't know everyone would unlock them eventually. In that case, why even bother with the collector's edition...? o_O

Oh other players can still get them? That's ok then. I thought people who got this would have all of those features exclusively which would unbalance the game to hell.
