EA and DICE have announced that a new game mode, Onslaught, will be available for download later this month on Playstation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. THe game mode will allow for four player co-operative play across four maps - Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay. These maps have been redesigned with the new mode in mind and given new lighting, new vehicles and other effects. The maps will see your team face off against an onslaught (see what I did there?) of enemy troops as you try and achieve objectives.
"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."
