Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager DICE and Patrick Soderlund, EVP of EA Games took the stage at GamesCon 2011 to talk about Battlefield 3's new co-op multiplayer mode. The co-op mode for BF3 will feature the "full range of Battlefield gameplay including ground and air vehicles, missions and tight urban warfare."
The co-op demo that the two were playing featured a mission where they had to rescue a high-value target and escort him to safety. Other than campaign missions with friends, you'll also be able to compete with players to see who can complete missions more quickly, and achieve leaderboard rankings. Also, Battlefield 3 wants to take your social experience to a new level, so whethe you're on your PC, console or mobile devices. Battleblog will keep you informed of every update from your friends, all in real time.
The two started the demo by praising BF3 as "the best Battlefield experience ever," and mentioning that "Battlefield 3 is the best, modern warfare experience game this year.”
Battlefield 3 is coming out for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25.
