1.1 Update Enters Final Candidate Testing
EA and DICE Canada are pleased to announce that the 1.1 update has entered final candidate testing - a process called Customer Quality Control (CQC) -- at EA Headquarters. This means that the 1.1 update is almost here.
But there’s more, soon following the release of BFV update 1.1, DICE and EA will be releasing the 1.1 debug .exe the public to assist modders in clearing out their bug lists for release. Additionally, new versions of Battlecraft and the MDT are in the process of being completed and will be not far behind.
All in all, late July should be an exciting time for Battlefield Vietnam players and modders. Keep an eye on this space for all of these items when they release.
A Gift from EA and DICE
For some time, DICE Canada has been secretly working on something very cool as a gift for owners of Battlefield Vietnam. We’re pleased to finally announce the fruition of this work: the OFFICIAL WWII Mod for Battlefield Vietnam.
Have you ever wondered what Wake Island or Iwo Jima would look and play like with real tropical foliage? Do you love Battlefield Vietnam but you want to be able to relive the classics without having to dig up your 1942 disks?
The WWII Mod includes the classic Wake Island, Invasion of the Philippines and Iwo Jima maps rebuilt to take advantage of all of the new features of the Vietnam rendering engine (normal mapping, undergrowth, overgrowth, etc.), as well as the gameplay tweaks that came with BFV. (capture timer, 3D Map, use of kit weapons from passenger seats, vehicle radios, etc.)
But that’s not all, DICE Canada has also added a brand new Flamethrower weapon for both the Axis and Allied teams and re-animated all of the weapons from Battlefield 1942’s Pacific Theatre. The WWII Mod has been in heavy testing here at EA for some time, so expect to see it some time in the near future.
We are very pleased to announce that a key Battlefield news website relaunched last week with a sparkling new and improved design. These guys are great fans of the game, and do good work keeping the community informed of what’s going on in the Battlefield player and mod communities.
Keep it up, guys. We appreciate everything you do for Battlefield (http://www.bfnation.net)
That's it for this weeks update. Be sure to check back next week on more info regarding the 1.1 update and the WWII Mod release. For those of you playing Battlefield 1942, we've posted an update over on the official site today.
