Sorry, there's no chance of you and your boy Augusto playing split-screen co-op in Battlefield 3
. Yup, if you wanna play with Augusto (you do, he's a cool dude!) then he'll need his own copy and play with you from the confines of his own apartment. The good news is that you won't have to smell each other's unwashed bodies as you play for 13 hours straight.
Speaking to GamingLives
, DICE's Karl Magnus Troedsson confirmed the bad news, stating that there would be no split-screen co-op support whatsoever in the game -- not even for the new co-op campaign
. Troedsson also said Battlefield 3
would ship with six maps for the co-op campaign, as opposed to the rumored ten maps. "Naturally, you will recognize some of the elements," Troedsson said in regards to the co-op campaign, "but they are built specifically for the co-op with all the scripting, events and everything."
