The action is fast and furious in this trailer for Battlefield: Bad Company 2's four-on-four Squad Rush multiplayer mode, but I can't take my eyes off the crumbling scenery.
So enthralled by the crumbling masonry was I that I nearly missed the real news about the Squad Rush mode. It's a four-player per team version of the game's Rush multiplayer mode, built for quick and dirty matches. There are no vehicles, one crate, and two bases, meaning the rounds should be over pretty quickly, especially if I am on your team, as I will spend the entire time blowing up houses.
It's also a GameStop preorder exclusive, at least for 30 days. Well, 30 days in North America. Well, 30 days on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America, as the PC version will come with the mode unlocked.
Utterly ridiculous, isn't it?
