EA and DICE have just announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be getting a brand new co-op game mode called Onslaught. The new Onslaught game mode will be a 4 player co-op game mode in which you and three friends go head to head with hordes of cpu controlled enemies, think of it as something similar to the co-op in Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 or the Horde mode in Gears of War 2.
Here is the full description of the new game mode, as posted on the Battlefield Blog
Onslaught is bringing co-op gameplay to Battlefield for the first time on console. The new game mode puts you and up to three friends against the enemy on Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes and Nelson Bay – redesigned with new lighting, time of day, added vehicles and other 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.
EA and DICE also released a short teaser trailer for the new game mode. Check it out below.
