DICE Details Battlefield 3 Co-Op Mode for PlayStation 3 Gamers

50°
160w ago - Today DICE Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling has shared details on the Co-Op Mode in Battlefield 3 for PlayStation 3 gamers.

To quote: "Snake-66 is mission go!"

Having just come back from a great Gamescom show in Germany, here's your chance to learn all about the co-op campaign in Battlefield 3 that we showed off on PS3.

We designed co-op to be the perfect blend between the strong narrative from single player and the open-ended action from multiplayer. We are fusing the replayability of multiplayer with a pick up-and-play mentality to create a totally new flavor of Battlefield.

Co-op follows the same philosophy as our award-winning multiplayer game mechanics. Teamwork is practically never forced upon you, but working together will make things much easier and - more importantly - lead to victory.

For the most part, the missions in the co-op campaign are asymmetric. This means that one mission can have you piloting a helicopter while your friend is the gunner, for example. Other situations have one player disarming a bomb and the other one defending him.

Or (as you could see in our press conference playthrough at Gamescom) you can do tandem kills to avoid detection. There are also other mechanics requiring teamwork, such as spotting enemies to...

165w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video and hands-on Opposing Forces report today for Battlefield 3 on the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Not long ago, Jeff and I went hands-on with an early, pre-alpha PS3 build of Battlefield 3's multiplayer mode.

Building on the positive buzz behind the smash hit Battlefield Bad Company 2, developer DICE is crafting a muscular follow-up that leverages new animation and rendering tech, revamped online features, and a rough-and-tumble feel to create a new breed of military shooter.

During the multiplayer battle, Jeff and I found ourselves on opposing sides (my side won, naturally). Following our all-too-brief hands-on session, Jeff and I compared notes on the finer points of Battlefield 3's multiplayer mode.





Sid Shuman: With Call of Duty's twitchier play style becoming the industry norm for many multiplayer military shooters, I was most curious to see how Battlefield 3′s multiplayer would stake out its own territory.

I was pleased to find a highly accessible game that remains faithful to Battlefield's realistic roots while evolving the look, feel, and tactics. This is a shooter that has learned several important...
