Battlefield 2142 Booster Pack Announced - By Mistake

Looks like someone at EA has an itchy trigger finger. A page on the Battlefield 2142 website, had information relating to the first booster pack for Battlefield 2142 - Northern Strike. The page is now down, as the boo boo was discovered, but I'm sure an official EA announcement is coming up pretty soon if they had the page ready and screenshots and information all done. Here is what the page had to say about the booster pack before it was taken down:

The PAC (Pan Asian Coalition) has secretly moved into northern and central Europe, using abandoned urban areas to establish new strongholds. Intense close-quarters warfare awaits the EU forces when they mobilize troops for a full-force assault to claim back their land. The Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike Booster Pack brings all-out infantry-focused battles into new snow-covered battlegrounds across Europe.

Three new maps provide the setting for the Booster Pack. High up in the Alps the EU uses launch pods to launch an assault on a PAC Titan docking harbour on the map Port Bavaria. Bridge at Remagen, the scene for one of WWII's major battles, is once again the setting for intense battles as both sides fight to secure the bridge. Finally, night has fallen when the EU launches their assault on the city in the Liberation of Leipzig.

Battlefield 2142: Infantry Storm offers an asymmetrical vehicle set-up with one new vehicle available to each army. The heavy IFV Goliath is a massive, slow-moving firing platform available to the EU, the attacking side, only. It is used to provide cover, as well as health and ammunition, to nearby infantrymen. The fast-moving hovering light IFV Speeder, available to the defending PAC only, is an efficient vehicle killer when staffed by a well coordinated pilot/gunner team.

With ten new unlocks, also available in the core game, and ten new awards, Battlefield 2142: Infantry Storm offers unprecedented persistence for a Booster Pack and makes the Battlefield 2142 experience deeper than ever before. The epic Titan mode introduced in Battlefield 2142 is available on two maps, and for the first time in an urban setting. All maps also feature Conquest mode with a tweaked Conquest Assault set-up, in which the attacking army (the EU) now has to conquer all control points before taking the enemy's main base. Welcome to the future of war

Yeah we need a new ww2 games or modern combat, nothing that great has come out. battlefield bad company and crysis look good but those don't come out till the end of the year.

i own every game in the bf series, but 2142 bores me to death. maybe i'm too old now at 33? I dont think i like the space theme... bring on the ww2 version

Sorry for my ignorance, but is a "booster pack" the same as an "expansion pack"?
Expansion packs are usually paid products... I was thinking that this booster pack would be free to BF2142 owners.
On the other side.. it's EA.. so it's probably gonna be paid.

if the BF2 packs are anything to go by, they were £5.99 each, which isn't bad really.

£5.99 x2. Bit of a rip off for a few no doubt unoriginal maps and weapons you won't use. Thankfully WoW: TBC is out so I won't be tempted to throw my money away on EAs **** poor marketing.

Yes because a game that's in the top 5 or 6 best selling PC games since release obviously hasn't sold well enough for new content
