EA brings together in-house titles like Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Medal of Honor, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, Battlefield Heroes and Dead Space 2. The benefits include in-game unlockable content, early beta test access and more.

Benefits are kicked off starting today. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 VIPs can redeem Metal of Honor rewards that include early access to the Metal of Honor beta and early access to the Metal of Honor M24 Sniper Rifle weapon unlock.

"This program takes our games from being individual launches to being part of an ecosystem within our portfolio, while showing fans our appreciation for their loyalty. The Gun Club gives us a platform to cross-pollinate our games, dialogue directly with players and add value to the entertainment experience for fans," Jeff Karp, Senior VP of Marketing at EA, said in an official release. "Today, we are launching the Gun Club with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Medal of Honor — two of the hottest titles coming out this year… and this is just the beginning."

The second she announced it, I and about a billion other people logged on and killed it. It was amusing. I got to see most of the page before logging in.

Gun Club's kind of an annoying name. I mean, I get the purpose, but it's a little odd.

Also, despite owning the 360 version of Bad Company 1, I cannot get it to show up on my account due to being unable to link my EA Online account and gamertags. Any ideas?
