Team Death Match In Battlefield 3 Capped At 24 Players Across Platforms, Including PC

PC Players who thought the Team Death Match mode in Battlefield 3 would feature 32-against-32 players, building up to a 64-player brawl, will have their hopes dashed by the news that across platforms, the mode will be limited to 12 versus 12.

According to the BF3Blog, a Battlefield fansite, DICE made known the news during GamesCom 2011, dispelling the rumor that the 24-player console cap would not be applied to the PC version. Also, Team Death Match will not feature vehicles.

In conquest mode, however, PC players will get to enjoy their 64-player battles, while consoles will be limited to 12 versus 12 matches.

Battlefield 3 releases in late October for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    For something like TDM 12 v 12 is fine with me. Anything more would seem too crowded. Spawn points would be locked down and it isn’t fun dying every 3 seconds. On objective games (where objectives are supposed to be met but rarely are anymore) more players is fine. I just hate the kill farmers on objective games and that is why I don’t care to play them on COD games.

    Agreed. I’m an objectives guy. All some people care about is k/d ratio – it means nothing to me as long as objectives are being completed. That goes for any game.

    This is such crap O_o Why do the PC players get 64, and we get 24 on huge ass maps…And yep, KD Means nothing to me, I love objective game types in Battlefield.

    @Saint123q: The maps will be smaller on consoles, DICE has confirmed. Or else they would be ghost towns.

    you mean ALL!
    every single god dam match i get into im always the only one trying to do the objective!
    or even my class job!
    if i had a nickle for every time i played the BF3 alpha and saw people sitting back trying to snipe people throughout the whole match even thought there freaking medics there job is to heal people id be a multibillionare by now!
    or even the recon class there the only ones who can take out tanks.
    so what were they doing?
    too busy knifing people!
    every single time a tank came out i had to get killed so i could switch over and get a rocket launcher out to take out the tanks.
    then everytime i tried to defend or attack a objective id be the only one there!
    if i had a nickle for every time i set a explosive then looked around to see 30 enemies and 0 friends id be a multibillionare by now!
    no one gives a shit about doing the bloody objectives!
    thats not only for BF3, thats for every game i played!
    hell i remember a while ago when i got into the MAG beta i was having the same trouble!

    LOL, yea it drives me nuts!
    another thing about online games that drives me nuts is allot of them are not ranked.
    tis why i dont bother with them anymore, i mean how is a level 1 who has not unlocked anything suppose to compete with people who have unlocked so many health, armour, and weapon upgrades?
    jesus christ vs a freaking ant!
    hmmmmmmm……… i wonder whos going to win!
