Battlefield 3 will have ten 2-player co-op maps

Some tasty new multiplayer news has been revealed about Battlefield 3. The game will feature a dedicated multiplayer two player co-operative mode that is supported by ten maps.

Executive producer Patrick Bach revealed this in the latest issue of PSM3, when questioned about the co-op mode that was mentioned way back when the game was announced.

Unfortunately, the news about the co-op mode was limited to the information that it supported ten maps for two player co-op. No other details were revealed about the mode.

Still, having ten co-op campaign maps for just you and a buddy sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it?

So that rumor about BF3 being stripped down for dlc, was really just a rumor then?

10 coop enabled maps sounds brilliant. It would have been even better if you could switch between 2 players and 4 players coop. But i'm getting greedy again, 2 players coop is good enough for now :). This game looks even more promising now.

does this mean just maps for 2vs2? or is it the same as cod with the split screen stuff?

coop maps do sound fun though. makes playing with mates a bit better

Oh boy oh boy, I'm getting even more excited about BF3 by the day. 2 player coop sounds brilliant. Can't wait to try it out. 10 maps... splendid.

JPerry, it's just playing over the internet with somebody against AI. As I see it. Or not? Uhm

@nocutius: No. What was being stripped down were weapons and stuff like that.

Not for me. Never play Co-op in anything so I'll be passing. Just hope resources for this haven't been diverted from anywhere else.

I like coop games. When in PvP its always just a lone wolf thing. When in coop people actually work together.

I just love the idea of new gameplay experience, but I think I'll stick to the good old PvP when the game finally comes out. Who knows how will this look like in the final release.

i am more into single-player mode 'cos i find MP or co-op is very distracting and also more difficult to compete with others then again maybe it's just me 'i must be crap'...lol

This is really great. I first found my way back to co-op with Left 4 Dead. Great when it works and BF3 could be fun this way also.

This is absolutely fantastic news, assuming its not another false promise from DICE. They've done this before then failed to deliver. Co-op (and mostly 2-player!) is the only way I play shooters, I can't stand them any other way. +1 for Left4Dead!! A shame L4D2 wasn't as good :/

So long as it doesn't interfere with the solo gamer's experience, bring it on.

Well BF was never known for it's SP campaigns in the first place so i don't care that much as long as it has one.

"BF", you're right hasn't had a 'real' SP component but it does now (thanks to the "Bad Company" and "MoH" recent releases), so many will want to play it, rather than just practicing for MP with bots as it use to be.
Personally I care less now about SP in shooters, but many do.

Well, I also like a good SP campaign and the one in BFBC2 was OK IMO. Not stellar but OK. But for BF3 I don't overly much care about the SP campaign (I hope I will be pleasantly surprised when it comes though...) since my hopes for something new and slightly evolving in the FPS genre isn't about to happen with either of these titles.
