Battlefield 3 Will Not Offer Split-Screen Co-Op

For players who hoped to be able to split the cost of the new Battlefield 3 with their bestie in order to save money and enjoy some split-screen co-op gaming, I’m sorry to say you’ll be disappointed. For this to work, you’ll need to save up double and pick up two copies of the game, and your friend better have his own system along with an internet connection. According to DICE, Battlefield 3 will not offer up any split-screen co-op.

This comes as an upset, naturally. Karl Troedsson from DICE confirmed this, saying that no split-screen will be supported whatsoever, no even for the game’s co-op campaign. Just so you see here, know that the co-op campaign is different from the single-player campaign, and in order to experience it you’ll need to hop online with a stranger. Or possibly a friend that lives next door.

On top of this, Troedsson announced that the game will ship with only six co-op campaign maps instead of the rumored ten. I don’t know who dropped the ball on this one, but I think DICE is under way too much pressure and they’re losing it. With a new Call of Duty approaching, do you think it’s putting the squeeze on the company? What are your thoughts about this new update?
