Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught DLC Preview

Earlier this month, Electronic Arts and DICE announced "Onslaught Mode" as downloadable content for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which puts a squad of up to four players up against AI-controlled enemies as players move to capture control points across four maps.

I had a chance to get some hands-on time at EA Redwood Shores and Onslaught is definitely a lot of fun. The mode plays out like a game of Rush, only your squad of four is up against enemy AI instead of other players. You can respawn as long as one team member is left standing and you'll want a good mix of classes in your squad as ammo will run low, vehicles will menace you, and allies will need healing.

EA: Single-Digit Percentage of Gamers Purchase New-Copy DLC; 70% Redeem Code with Purchase

On its 2010 fiscal year earnings call, Electronic Arts revealed that over 70% of purchasers of its recent titles that include free, one-time DLC codes with all new copies have redeemed the codes. This includes Mass Effect 2's Cerberus Network, Battlefield: Bad Company 2's console VIP code, and Dragon Age: Origin's The Stone Prisoner.

Additionally, EA is seeing a single-digit percentage of the overall player-base purchase this content instead of redeeming codes. It is unclear, however, is this is due to a small percentage of players actually purchasing these games used without codes or if many do not wish to purchase this content with a used copy.
