We have seen that Activision has been charging $15 for 5-map Modern Warfare 2 DLC package. Developer DICE is sounding different campaign. They are saying that they won’t charge anything for extra maps of the Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Not only this, the company has also “insisted” Electronic Arts that the publisher doesn’t add fees for customers.
Previously it was stated by DICE that it does not want to “nickel-and-dime” the customers for the DLC. Speaking to the Xbox World 360 Magazine, the company says, “We don’t ever want to charge for our maps and insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial.”
However, developer DICE did not say anything about charging for other content like the “expanding other parts of the game experience rather than the selection of maps.”
The second map pack of BBC2 was released recently and there was no extra cost tagged. Along with it was also released the DLC of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package and it was tagged for $15.
