Battlefield 4′s multiplayer game modes revealed

Battlefield 4′s multiplayer game modes revealed

Seven in total.

Just a few days before the beta launches on October 1st (for early access players; 4th for everyone), DICE revealed the seven modes that will make up Battlefield 4′s multiplayer.

Conquest, the “quintessential Battlefield mode”, will be playable in the beta, and will feature 24 players on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and 64 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Domination will also be playable in the beta, and is a mode previously only seen in Battlefield 3: Close Quarters. Infantry-only, fast-paced, 20 players across all platforms.

Obliteration is one of the two new game modes for Battlefield 4. Both teams fight over a bomb, which needs to be picked up and dropped off at one of the enemy’s three objectives, then be armed, and go boom on the objective. EA commented that “since there’s only one bomb at a time, you will often find yourself going from attacker to defender in the blink of an eye.” It will support 24 people on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and 32 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Defuse is the other new mode, in which every player has a single life per round, and teams fight it out over enemy objectives that need to be armed and detonated, or simply need to kill the whole enemy team. 5-on-5 across all platforms.The remaining three modes are: Team Deathmatch (20 players on all platforms), Rush (24 players on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, 32 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC), and Squad Deathmatch (16 players on all platforms).So, the beta is a few days away, and we’re cooking something up with Ernice. Will you be joining and get an early glimpse of the game, before it releases on October 29?
