The Electronic Arts Inc. Studio, DICE, announced that their Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is going to expand its award winning multiplayer experience with the new "Onslaught" game mode. "Onslaught" will bring cooperative game play to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the first time ever on a console.
The new Onslaught mode is expected to release on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and Sony PlayStation Network soon. This is just another reason for players to give the game a chance.
The New Battlefield: Bad Company 2 cooperative "Onslaught" mode will be able to be played by up to four players across four multiplayer maps, which are Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay. The maps are recreated with new lightning, time of day and other new effects. Each map has a dedicated gameplay focus, requiring different levels of teamwork in order to complete the objectives against an onslaught of enemy AI. Vehicle warfare comes to the forefront in Atacama Desert while Nelson Bay focuses squarely on infantry assault. Players can compete in squads and check individual progress via the dedicated Onslaught leaderboards.
Senior Producer at DICE, Patrick Bach, explained that they are thrilled to bring something new and fresh to the game while still keeping Battlefield’s signature gameplay intact. He also stated that they want to consistently support the over four millions players that are playing the game with new ways to get into multiplayer and also challenge the elite players with new experiences to improve their performance online. Patrick Bach also said that effective squad play is the key to success in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer, and that this new game mode will provide players with a dedicated environment to test their team skills and rank against the competition.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is available in Europe and North America for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles, and Windows-Based PCs.
