Battlefield Bad Company 2 will be using an in-game store system similiar to Mass Effect 2’s Cerberus Network.
People who purchase a brand new copy of the game will recieve a V.I.P code allowing them access to the network.
You can look forward to some launch day DLC as well, with some free Multiplayer maps to check out.
Sadly if you buy your copy of the game second hand then you will have to pay to get a V.I.P code.
So thats it, EA are certainly trying to encourage people to buy the game new.
And dont forget to pre-order your Limited Edition of the game as it cost’s the same as the standard version.
