The front side of the VIP card that comes with new copies of Battlefield: Bad Company 2
VIP back.jpg
The back side, which contains the actual code used to access the VIP features (note that the code shown has already been used, and that all codes were set to expire on April 1st, 2011).


The VIP Program was a series of content that came free with each new copy of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and offered new map and game mode variations to players upon their release.

Similar to its online pass program, Electronic Arts created it as an incentive to encourage consumers to buy new copies, rather than used versions. Those who owned used copies of the game were thereby given the option to purchase the content digitally.

Map packs four through seven were all patched in for PC users, whereas those same map packs on console required a VIP code.

In May 2013, EA dropped their online passes program for all products and made any related content free, including the VIP program.
