If it's been awhile since you've dropped a house on a dude or two in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for console, June 22 seems like a proper good day to jump back in. DICE has announced that its Onslaught mode DLC will be available on PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace that afternoon, bringing with it four-player cooperative antics somewhat similar to that of Horde mode in Gears of War 2 (for you non-BF folks).
There's a Battlefield twist to it, naturally. In Onslaught, you're the aggressor, actively ravaging AI soldiers in an attempt to take over positions and nab control points on four maps already in the game's rotation. It's like Rush mode, except you'll only be able to respawn if a pal is still hanging around, and the AI will keep pressing in waves. Kit changes are GO, too, thanks to in-map drops, and yeah, you'll totally be able to mow down dudes in vehicles--just don't expect to earn experience points in Onslaught that count toward unlocks.
No PC version of this content has been announced quite yet, but we hear that DICE is trying to figure out a way to offer it, though. Cross your fingers... or keyboards. Whatever you PC people do.
The Onslaught DLC will be priced at 800 MSP and $9.99 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, respectively.
