Battlefield 3 won’t have a local co-op mode

Playstation 3 Xbox 360 PC News EA FPS Action

You would think that a game with such popularity as Battlefield 3 would have an option that will allow you to play local co-op with some split-screen, this way your friends can come over and play right alongside you. But unfortunately that won’t be the case as Battlefield 3’s developer DICE has confirmed that the game will feature only online multiplayer.

In a conversation with Eurogamer, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said “”No, you have to be online to do it” when asked about the potential for local multiplayer. This strange non-local co-op mode trend has grown significantly over the past few years, with the most recent violator being Call of Juarez: The Cartel, which was focused significantly around co-op playing… but only online. What are your thoughts as to why this has become so prevalent?

    Well its a bit of a disappointment as I like to play split-screen as this game looks brilliant but it has become more known for games of this era to only allow online multiplayer except for a few but it doesn’t really involve much fun as its not co-op as in campaign its just you go and vs ur friends leading to screen cheating =P, but some games like halo,gears,and Cod have had co-op features like campaign for halo and gears, horde and zombies + spec ops and firefight have all been good local co-op features that other games should take in and use them to their advantage.
