Electronic Arts revealed today that the previously announced co-op-centric Onslaught Mode downloadable content for DICE’s blockbuster shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be released on June 22.
Onslaught supports up to four players and includes reworked and beefed up versions of the Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes and Nelson Bay maps, and will, for reasons still unknown, put an emphasis on vehicle-based combat. The DLC will be available on PlayStation Network for $9.99 and Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points.
EA also announced that it will be releasing a Bad Company 2 Kit Shortcuts later this month that will let players buy access to each character class’ item inventory. The kits will be available on June 16 individually for $6.99/560 MSP, or as a bundle for $19.99/1600 MSP.
This kind of cash vs. time approach is normally seen in MMOs, but it also feels totally natural for something like Bad Company 2 too. Anyone out there have any strong feelings for or against this model?
