The E3 demo of DICE for the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has highlighted the multiplayer mode and a match type that is called Rush. Those fans who are familiar with the franchise will remember the Gold Rush mode from the first game. In this the players is suppose to either attack or defend stashes of gold.
The main difference in this new Bad Company 2 is that the matches are more objective-based and progressive. There are two teams combating to take over a military base that is hidden among snowy mountaintops. As the gamers either attack or defend a position, the action moves forward through the environment in it.
In this game players will be having access to vehicles this time around. Hence, the teams can group together in a tank and advance to the next location.

We want to reach new markets and make the game accessible to a wider audience. But this is the future of downloadable games.
