EA and DICE announced today that Onslaught mode for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is set to be released on June 22.

The co-op mode can be played with up to four players and promises an “online vehicle warfare experience” with “elite squads having additional challenges to accomplish new achievements and new opportunities to reach the top of the leaderboards”.

Also this month, the BFBC2 Kit Shortcuts will be available for 560 MS/$6.99/£5.19 individually or in a bundle for 1600 MSP/$19.99/£13.99/€17.99.

You can get them in a bundle for 1600 MSP on XBL come June 16 worldwide and on PSN $9.99/£13.99.

Onslaught will run you 800 MSP and £7.19 on PSN June 23.

Still no word on if it will hit PC or not.

    @4 Oh yeah. Free always equals better.

    I’ll go grab some free drugs.

    I’ll go get a free car. Those always run so good.

    I’ll go take a free trip with a big hairy man to Disney Land. Hey, it’s free, it must be good!

    So this is the first bit of half decent DLC, and it has nothing to do with the VIP thing? /slow clap.

    And will they release ‘Onslaught pack 2′ later on for a price where its added to some more maps?

    @5 Free is not better, did i said it? No. It’s just developers like Valve, DICE, ID and e.t.c. makes maps with the quality for FREE.

    While someone create 3 new maps and make a REMAKE of old ones on shitty engine for 15$.

    and after Onslaught there will be new maps, so… ;) i’m absolutely happy.

    Apparently. Because DICE are all about free maps (though have yet to deliver, and it sounded more like wishful thinking then anything else). But they dont care about charging for everything else.

    @7 People are quite happy buying DLC packs for other games, so all in all, I think it works well for everyone involved to pay for what they get. You recieve focused content, they recieve money for it. That’s the only relationship developers have with their users.

    ID and Valve are exempt since they have other, better sources of income than DLC. Other developers and publishers likely don’t.

    When you’re making maps you’re paying salaries, and if those salaries aren’t being regenerated on sales, then you’re basically just throwing away money on both content and bandwidth.

    That’s why it’s so naive to think that DICE will work for free. EA have sacked thousands of workers over the last year, they’ve lost 80% of their value in the crisis. I doubt investors would be happy to hear that the ones left are giving away their work.

    And mind you that DICE haven’t made free maps at all yet. All they’re doing is unlocking modes. If that’s really your idea of “free maps”, then I’m fine paying for mine :p
