Prepare for the Onslaught

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is bringing Battlefield's first co-op mode to consoles with Onslaught mode.

Onslaught will be available from June 22nd on Xbox 360 for 800 MS Points and on the PlayStation Network in North America for $9.99 followed by the European PlayStation Network on June 23rd for 8.99€.

 

If you were to play Onslaught in picture form it would look something like this: 

 

   

 

Also this month, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Kit Shortcuts will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for those players who don't have time to spend levelling up to unlock all the kit specific items but still want to be competitive with those who have unlocked everything. The Kit Shortcuts will give you the unlocks available for kit each kit while still allowing you to progress through the ranking system as normal and will be available for 560 MS Points/$6.99 individually or if you want the whole bundle of kit shortcuts including the 7 available vehicle unlocks, 1600 MS Points on Xbox Live and $19.99/17.99€. The Kit Shortcuts will be available on Xbox Live Worldwide and European PlayStation Network from 16th June with the North American PlayStation Network having access to the shortcuts from 22nd June.

    Hmm...  I thought this would've been perfect for a VIP release...  Plus, who would pay money just to unlock guns early??

    Haha.  What a rip off.  First BFBC2 recycles maps and says they are "new" and now they charge $10 for a game mode that is standard on every other shooter.

    Well, 10$ is what I expected but I'm surprised of the kit shortcuts - sure a lot of people will pay a lot for just a tiny advantage. But still: awesome!

    "if you want the whole bundle of kit shortcuts including the 7 available vehicle unlocks, 1600 MS Points on Xbox Live"

    What are the 7 available vehicle unlocks?  Are these the unlocks when you use the vehicles to rank up to get extra armor, machine gun turret, smoke screen, etc... or are they new vehicles added to the onslaught mode?

    Kit shortcuts aren't so stupid for those who don't sit on in front of a square screen half their lives working up through the ranks against everyone who already has those unlocks, but still want to get the most of the gameplay.

    The price for them however is just plain daylight robbery.

    I could have sworn when i first seen this page...there was something about  Map pack 4...hmm...

    Least the price for the new mode isnt to bad. Looking forward to it..hopefully the lag stops at night.

    This is stupid. How about you spend your time making some good, vehicle based, rush maps. Because not a single bc2 map is better than any of the bc1 maps.

    Please make some new content for the PC.  This is getting ridiculous.

    Kit shortcuts?? for that much??...

    Yeah.. anyways... Any GBP prices for onslaught on PS3?? for some reason we have to be snobby and keep our origional currency and not stick with the rest of europe. I would convert it but its not always the same. Much appreciated :D

    Cool to have co-op in this game, but im thinking its just gonna be like playing squad deathmatch online... Except vs. bots instead of real people. So... Paying $10 to play vs AI instead of real people makes no sense to me.
