Old-school co-op is a no-go for Battlefield 3. DICE general manager Karl Troedsson confirmed the game’s co-op multiplayer, which debuted Monday, is online only.
“No, it has to be online to do it,” said Troedsson to GamingLives when asked if players could play co-op games locally.
Co-op in Battlefield 3 features six maps, each varying between 15-45 minutes in length, depending on which map you play, the difficulty, etc. Each co-op map features random elements, meaning you may come across new enemies and other events on a second playthrough.
Battlefield 3 launches for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in October.
