Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught Mode Announced For Consoles; PC Version Possible



EA and DICE have announced a co-op survival mode for the console editions of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, pairing you and three others against waves of AI drones on rejigged multiplayer maps:

<blockquote>DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio, today
announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is expanding its
award-winning multiplayer experience with the introduction of an
all-new mode called ‘Onslaught’. This mode brings co-op gameplay to the
Battlefield franchise for the first time ever on console. Coming soon,
Onslaught mode will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and on the
PlayStation Network, creating more reasons for players to check out the
game that Seth Schiesel of The New York Times says “is a better game
than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.” Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught mode can be played with up to
four players across four multiplayer maps – 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.
Onslaught is bringing co-op gameplay to Battlefield for the

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. “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.”</blockquote>

Realising there would be a backlash from envious PC users left out in the cold, EA prepared a statement:

<blockquote>No, we haven't signed away rights to console on
this. The problem we have on PC is that all our servers are dedicated
with providers. Changing a server from Conquest 32 players to Onslaught
4 players cuts out 28 player slots from the total ammount available.
This could have a dramatic affect on the PC online environment if
enough servers changed to Onslaught.
We aren't ruling out Onslaught on PC but at this time we are
researching how to bring it to PC without affecting players who don't
have Onslaught or their own server to run it on. </blockquote>

Tatt what do you thing about all this ?, 1 dlc to xbox and play3 , now new mode game again for systems, and what about the million players of pc?
I have xbox 360, i played battlefield 1943 and bad company 1, rainbowsix las vegas 1 and 2 etc, the sensation and the gameplay isnt comparable at all to to the pc experience, i think that shoters must be played with a mouse and keyboard (or that thing you use to play Smile hahah).
by the way yesterday i couldnt see you playing in my friend list but i know you were playing because of friend leaderboards, anyone has the same problem?
