No co-op in Battlefield 4

CO-op is cut from BF4 because the developer wants to focus on singleplayer and multiplayer.

So far we’ve only seen the singleplayer portion of Battlefield 4 — all 17 minutes of it. DICE and EA are opting to start with the singleplayer unveiling, just as they did with BF3. While the player assumes the role of a soldier in a squad in Battlefield 4, there won’t be a any co-op feature, DICE confirmed.

In a recent interview (via Shacknews), DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson said that they cut co-op from Battlefield 4 so that they can focus more on the singleplayer and multiplayer.

DICE showcased the Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign in new screenshots and a long, 17-minute gameplay video taking the player through the first missions in the game. The singleplayer showcased the new visuals in the game, powered by Frostbite 3, and showed a much more open-ended kind of gameplay compared to the campaign in BF3. Hopefully DICE will showcase the Battlefield 4 multiplayer portion before E3.

As for co-op, we’re sure most gamers won’t be too disappointed by the lack of co-op in Battlefield 4. BF3 featured co-op, which was, just as the whole singleplayer campaign, not that good. Most played the co-op because it allowed them to unlock a few weapons for use in multiplayer.

    I played co-op cause i had ppl to play it with.

    A good single player campaing is one thing but a 4 man squad coop single player is another… aka left 4 dead.

    combining the 2 never hurts imo.
    Guess they didn’t assume ppl nowadays use skype and actually communicate trough coop to make it more fun.

    then put co-op in the campaing story it’s not that hard….. & it will be better to play the campaing with 2 or 4 players .

    I don’t think co-op is that important in the SP portion of a Battlefield game, the only reason I bothered with it in BF3 was because of the weapons. Once I unlocked them all, I never looked back. Maybe if DICE actually added some more co-op missions, it would have remained fresh for longer than it was. Once you know exactly what to do and how in all six missions, it becomes rather boring…

    I’m glad it won’t be in BF4. More time for MP.

    Co-op was awesome. Only reason people don’t play it is because there isn’t enough of it. You need more missions on co-op. And campaign needs to be multi player

    CO OP would have been successful if it wasn’t so short, linear, and restricted to only two people. In Bad Company 2 Onslaught Mode, we were able to play with a squad of 4 against AI bots. We were able to use what ever vehicles we wanted and approach our objectives from any direction. That Was Battlefield. It appears they are taking the single player campaign in the right direction, which is also the direction the Co-Op should have also went, assuming it was in the works. I honestly thought DICE was going to reveal the single player campaign would be available for online Co-Op based on the way they were designing it. I guess I was getting ahead of myself.

    The coop game in btf3 was awsome and i was expecting more of it in btf4. Im deeply desapointed.. i don’t think its a big issue to add coop missions.

    In btf3 there is a tons of expensions and not even a new coop mission.

    Battlefield 4 – “Epic Fail” by not continuing with Co-op missions. Not everyone wants to have multi-player experience. Single missions graphics are terrible and screen mission information is sometimes too small to try to read without sitting directly in front of screen! Why is it when you have a great product you have to change it as it usually never works out. Sorry I purchased and next time will research.

    thats probrably because you sit at home and play games all day in solitude. Not having co op is a major turn off that will soon have this game in the shadows of MW3. Co Op is important, im so pissed that I wont be purchasing this game untill the price comes down because Im not paying 60 dollars for something i cant play with my friends at home. Such a turn off

    Me and my group of 9 people love CO-OP games, Wish wish they made more and not just for 4 to 6 players only. 🙁

    It takes someone getting paid too much to decide what everyone wants or doesn’t want in a game. The more coop I can find the better. Hope these overpaid big dollar game makers find the right balance some day soon….
