1) I'm only buying it if it 'll be in the stores (I hope so)
2) How much is this thingy going to cost?
3) As Masterstyle said; I'm Brig. Gen., so will I just simply receive these unlocks?
4) Will these unlocks be useable in the normal BF2142 Maps ( Camp Gib., Tunis Harb., .. ) ?
5) I fear the Golliath will become the same whoring object as the Walkers/APCs are in the City Maps like Camp Gib., Tunis Harb., Fall of Ber., ...
6) And the thingy magicly heals nearby soldiers.. Does that mean that the driver gets points for that? If so; there's going to be some major whoring..
7) Won't Titan Mode + City Map = Huge Lag ?

Looking forward to more info + screenshots etc.

Apperently It is going to be able to transport personel, so anyone in it as assault or support will heal/resupply people next to it. Like normal APC

They should give it out free to make up for not making the game right to begin with. I hate having to patch and repatch. and all the glitches still.

Found this pretty funny to read...
http://digitalbattle.com/2006/10/22/bat … announced/

I hope the booster actually gets boxed as well as sold over the EA Link (worst piece of dysfunctional crap I have ever seen)

My biggest concern for this booster pack is the unlocks though, I would prefer to see new stuff in that department, to some extent, preferably not a tier of ZOMG-must-have-unlocks. I simply have some fears for new unlocks. For example, if the new ability unlock is some kind of either universal accuracy increaser or reload-time decreaser which will result in most people without the booster pack will be raped around. And that'll be bad.

EA, I don't pray to you much, Almighty company, but please, for the sake of gaming, don't fubar (it's not gonna happen you know). I'll make sure to donate another 10€ for your threatened survival, since no other company can come close to making such great games, quality-wise.

This was posted on the Swedish BF2142 community, by a DICE employee.

[DICE]CrazyCow :
Tjena. Jag heter Kristoffer och jag är producent på Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike, ett boosterpack utvecklat här i Stockholm och som utannonseras idag. I morgon kommer vi att släppa mer komplett information, med en riktig pressrelease och en trailer som, utan att blåsa upp förväntningarna för mycket, är en av Rolles fartigaste så här långt. Tanken med Northern Strike är att utöka striderna till de övergivna, snötäckta städerna och industriområdena i centrala Europa. Tre nya banor kan vi njuta av, och det ingår både Titanmode och Conquest. Conquest har vi dessutom tweakat lite för att ge en mer intensiv känsla av storskalig anfallsstrid.
Som ni sett på våra in-game billboards så får ni även nya fordonstyper, mer om dem senare. På unlocks-sidan så kommer det 10 stycken nya, upplåsbara även genom Field Upgrade.

Mer information om öppen beta-testning kommer på BF-portalen inom kort!

Translation

Hi, my name is Kristoffer and I'm the producer of Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike, a boosterpack  developed here in Stockholm and it's been announced today. Tomorrow we're going to release more complete information, with a real press release, and a trailer which, without getting the expectations to high, is one of "Rolles" most intensive yet. We want to take the battles to the abanded, snowcovered city's and industry's in central Europe. We can enjoy three new maps and there will be both titan and conquest. We have also tweaked conquest a bit to give a more intense feeling of a large-scale assault.

As you have seen in our in-game billboards you will also get new vehicles, more about them later. There will be ten new unlocks, they will also be available through field upgrades.

More information about open beta-testing will be on the BF-portal shortly.


That's all. Trailer tomorrow.

And sorry if the translation sucks, it's late and I'm tired, well I did my best ^^
btw, I posted a thread about this booster yesterday, but it seems to be deleted

Today we would like to announce to all our players the coming release of the Battlefield 2142 Northern Strike booster pack! There is a press release going out tomorrow, along with a trailer showing the action in one of the new maps. This addition to the Battlefield universe contains new content to expand the war for the survival deep into the frigid wastelands of Europe. With three new maps players will be challenged to engage in Titan and Conquest game play to secure victory for their team. Both sides have brought forward new vehicles to aid their forces along with 10 new unlocks available to soldiers through both standard and field unlock systems. We also wanted to inform players that we will be working with Combat Studios Testing to host a closed beta in the near future.





Watch this space for information on how to join the beta.
Its been predicted for ages, but EA have finally conceded!!
W00t 2142: NS is coming!!!

Edit - This was a thread yesterday, but its been moved to the Official one >.<

lots of people seem to complain about subscription games... EA seems just as bad to me.. ever few months they release a booster pack and charge for it.. not much a difference IMO... pay to play, consumerism ftw

Does that mean we can use the unlocks in vanilla 2142?

You quoted the wrong sentence, but yes - the new unlocks and ranks will even apply for Vanilla 2142.

Dood!  We already knew it was on the way, we all saw the warning signs...and that slip-up the other day.  And yeah, if they keep to normal traditions, it will be ten bucks--which I think is kind of fair for me.  Not so for people without credit cards, but they do have those various gift cards--maybe EA should start offering them in stores or something, get a wider fanbase of their online distribution.
