Back to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with MP1st on Xbox 360
Looks like we ran into some major issues tonight. We believe that the free Games With Gold version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is missing a few important updates that are needed to play online, which is why a lot of you were unable to connect to EA’s servers. Some of you who may already own the game might even be missing an update or two.
To make sure your game is up-to-date, either go to the in-game STORE or the XBOX LIVE MARKETPLACE to download all the latest (free) updates you might find there, including the free VIP Pass. See if you can connect to EA’s servers afterwards.
If you’re down, let’s meet again on Sunday at 3PM PST / 6PM EST! Cool?
We’re going back to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
One of our favorite Battlefield games of all time is now being offered to all Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360 for free between today, October 1, and Monday, October 15. So, with everyone on last-generation’s Xbox getting open access to one of DICE’s most beloved and fun-filled Battlefield titles ever, we figured we’d take this moment to organize a relaxed but epic night of Bad Company 2 with some of our readers.
We’re looking to recruit roughly 20 – 22 (or more) of you to participate in a ‘Back to Battlefield: Bad Company 2’ night with MP1st staff on the Xbox 360 this Friday, October 3 between 3:30PM – 5:30PM Pacific / 6:30PM – 8:30PM Eastern. We’ll start up some private matches and revisit some of those memorable Bad Company 2 maps that we all know and love. If there is enough interest, or if we can’t rotate through all participants during that time frame, we’ll open up a second event on Sunday, October 5. Time TBA.
Here’s how to sign up:
Must be an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.
- Dust off your Xbox 360. Make sure it’s still working.
- Dust off your copy of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Make sure it’s still working.
- If you don’t own a copy of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, head over to this page or find the game on the Xbox Live Marketplace and start downloading.
- Send a friendly message to ‘Veselka‘ on Xbox 360, Xbox One, or the Xbox SmartGlass app letting me know you’d like to participate OR drop your Gamertag in a response to this Forum post (all participating GTs will be listed here).
- I’ll respond back with confirmation and a friend invite as soon as possible and send game invites starting roughly 15 minutes before go time on Friday.
We’ll be live streaming the entire thing from the perspective of MP1st staff, so if you can’t quite participate, you can always hang out with us on our official Twitch channel when the games begin.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the battlefield!
