Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, playerattack lets you know which games were the most popular.
And – a week before Christmas, we have a new winner! Gamers have had enough of the Black Ops and are rushing to Vietnam instead (possibly thanks to a well-timed sale, rather than any actual preference). Don’t fret, Mason and friends are still lurking about at #4, and will probably make a blazing comeback next week. Their reign can’t be over so soon, can it?
#1 – Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Get ready for a whole new war, as DICE’s massively popular online shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 makes the journey back to the 60’s and the infamous Vietnam war.
At the heart of this expansion lie four distinct, brand-new multiplayer maps based on the Vietnam War. Each map brings a new gameplay experience and fresh visuals, with characteristics such as foxholes, tunnels and dense jungles from where the enemy can launch surprise attacks. Also, 15 classic Vietnam-era weapons and 6 vehicles are available from the moment you go online.
All four multiplayer game modes from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, including the genre-defining Conquest Mode, will be playable in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The expansion is integrated with the full game persistence, so no matter what theatre of war you participate in, you will continue to level up your soldier as usual.
