Battlefield 4 Oblieration Mode

The developers over at DICE announced it will bring a new game mode to the Battlefield 4 beta, which will be accessible to all beta users. Obliteration has been designed for up to 24 players on the Xbox 360 and PS3, along with the Xbox One, PS4, and PC supporting 32 players. The company has also said that Commander Mode will be optional with DICE describing the game mode as a “mad dash in vehicles and on foot to deliver explosive.”

Here’s more on the announcement from the Battlefield 4 blog:

We call this the ”Battlefield Moments Generator”. One of the two new game modes in Battlefield 4, Obliteration is definitely the most explosive! In Obliteration, a bomb spawns at a random location on the map. Both teams must fight to pick up the bomb, drop it off at one of their opponent’s three objectives, arm it, and destroy the objective. Once a bomb has detonated, the next one randomly spawns in a new location and the chaos starts all over. The game lasts until one team has detonated the other team’s three objectives. Obliteration can be devastatingly quick or a harrowing tug of war depending on how good your team is at staying together and delivering the bomb. Like most other game modes, there is usually also a time limit in place to make sure the match does not go on for too long.

Compared to Conquest, the action in Obliteration tends to be heavily focused on wherever the bomb is located. 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. You need to be able to predict enemy movement to defend at the right place at the right time and reclaim the offensive – or intercept the enemy to reclaim possession of the bomb. The constantly shifting playing field from offense to defense is partly inspired by American football – with the detonation of an enemy installation being the Battlefield equivalent of scoring a touchdown.

Battlefield 4 hits stores on October 29th.
