The VIP program was an incentive designed to encourage consumers to buy a new version of ''[[Battlefield: Bad Company 2]]'', rather than buying a used copy. Without the VIP code and card that came with each new copy of ''Battlefield: Bad Company 2'', the buyer would be unable to download or use new maps and map packs, unless they purchased one digitally, or acquired an unused code.

A blog post on the Battlefield Blog explains how the returning Battlefield: Bad Company maps were modified with the current Frostbite engine featuring Destruction 2.0. It also confirms that the maps have been changed slightly to fit the current engine's mechanics, among other small improvements. Essentially, the maps should be very similar to what Battlefield: Bad Company players experienced. Some gameplay aspects have been changed, such as the MEC being replaced by the RGF, and Artillery being replaced by the UAV-1, among other changes.
