Coming soon to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Onslaught mode brings Battlefield co-op game play to the console for the first time, allowing teams of up to four players to brush up on their teamwork without other players shooting at them.
Onslaught mode takes four of Bad Company 2's multiplayer maps – Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay – redesigns them with new lighting, time of day, and vehicles, and gives each a dedicated game play focus that requires varying degrees of teamwork to accomplish.
Think of it as a training ground, where you and your squad mates can develop your skills before bringing them to bear on other players. Dedicated Onslaught leaderboards will allow squads to keep track of their progress.
"We're thrilled to bring something new and fresh to Battlefield: Bad Company 2 while still keeping Battlefield's signature gameplay intact," says Patrick Bach, Senior Producer at DICE. "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."
Onslaught mode is "coming soon" to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
