DICE: We'll never charge for Battlefield maps

Bad Company 2 dev tells EA that free DLC is "crucial"

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 developer DICE has pledged that it will never charge for downloadable map packs.

The news comes after Infinity Ward put a pricetag of 1200 Microsoft Points on its Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Map Pack.

IW's pack went on sale yesterday - with some complications. DICE's own VIP 2 map pack became available on the same day - without cost.

"We don't ever want to charge for our maps and insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial when it came to keeping our community happy and playing together," DICE senior producer Patrick Bach told Xbox World 360 magazine.

Bach commented that DICE had "generous" amounts of DLC planned for Battlefield: Bad Company 2's future.

He added: "We're owned by EA but we're still very much DICE."
