Onslaught Mode Brings Co-Op Play To Bad Company 2
If you're still having fun with one of the year's best shooters, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, you'll be happy to learn about the new expansion.
DICE and EA have announced the all-new multiplayer mode called "Onslaught," which brings us the benefit of cooperative fun for the very first time in the series. "Coming soon," it'll be available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace and will allow up to four players to sample four multiplayer maps (Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay), all with overhauled lighting, different times of day, new vehicles, and other special effects. There's a "dedicated gameplay focus" for each map, which will require a team effort in order to complete the objective at hand. Said Patrick Bach, DICE Senior Producer:
"We're thrilled to bring something new and fresh to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 while still keeping Battlefield's signature gameplay intact. We want to consistently support the over 4 million fans playing the game with new ways to get into multiplayer and also challenge the elite players with new experiences to improve their performance online. Effective squad play is the key to success in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer and this new mode will provide players with a dedicated environment to test their team skills and rank against the competition."
Bad Company 2 really is a wonderfully polished and almost ceaselessly entertaining shooter, and the addition of online co-op will make it even better. DICE has somehow managed to top Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in the online multiplayer aspect, or so say some critics...do you agree?
