Battlefield 3 Will Not Have Split-Screen Co-Op
According to DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, Battlefield 3's multiplayer will not have split-screen co-op.
The multiplayer action shown at Gamescom a couple of days ago will be online multiplayer only. The game will feature six co-operative maps and will be different from the game's campaign maps. There will be no drop-in, drop-out system either.
The co-op system will be run on peer-to-peer instead of servers and will be based on scores rather than rankings and leaderboards.
It was also confirmed that the game's co-op missions online will feature random elements that could change and be different every time you play through the map.
Battlefield 3 is out in October for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
