Bad Company gets new mode this week

Conquest add-on arriving Thursday.

EA DICE plans to add a Conquest mode to Battlefield: Bad Company this Thursday.

Conquest, which first found fame in Battlefield: 1942, is a team game based around depleting the opposing side's tickets. Shooting baddies dead only loses them a single ticket, whereas holding or capturing objectives drains them far more effectively.

Which all adds a rather welcome dose of variation to the existing Gold Rush multiplayer mode, although Conquest will be played on the existing maps.

Battlefield: Bad Company, in case you hadn't noticed, is really rather good. The game is more single-player and story focused than the rest of the series, but also plays to the strengths of developer DICE with well executed multiplayer madness.
