An update to the PS3 version of hugely popular first-person shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is expected to hit European gamers “early this week”, developer DICE has promised.
The update will allow European players to access the in-game store and their VIP content.
According to an update on the Battlefield blog, the access to the in-game store will start things off by giving VIP members access to the Rush map Nelson Bay, and the Conquest map Laguna Alta.
Bad Company 2 has suffered server problems across all platforms since its release last week.
Yesterday DICE revealed Bad Company 2 saw 400 per cent higher peak traffic over the weekend than any other Battlefield game.
DICE said: “While the Xbox 360 and PC aren’t getting a client update today [yesterday] we will of course be watching them at DICE and EA, making sure the servers keep running and let you game as much Battlefield time as possible.
“We have been discussing a few issues on the official forums and provided some temporary solutions for PC gamers’ problems while we work on a more permanent solution for them at DICE.
