Battlefield 4's seven multiplayer modes revealed

Release Date: 27/09/2013

Battlefield 4 will launch with ten maps and no less than seven distinct multiplayer modes to play on them, EA and DICE have confirmed.

In a post on the official Battlefield blog, DICE explained how all modes will be playable on every map. "By carefully zoning the playable combat areas, adapting flag layouts, and catering for a variety of gameplay styles, each map will accomodate any game mode you wish to play," read the post.

The seven game modes are:

Conquest - the traditional Battlefield multiplayer experience with multiple vehicle types and full freedom to explore the map. Conquest supports 24 players on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and 64 players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Domination - the infantry-based variant on Conquest, supporting 20 players on all platforms.

Obliteration - new to Battlefield, this is described as a "mad dash" on foot and in vehicles to deliver explosives to hotspots on the map. It supports 24 players on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and 32 players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Defuse - Also new to Battlefield, this is an intense close quarters mode pitting two teams of five against each other.

Team Deathmatch - the classic multiplayer mode, supporting 20 players on all platforms.

Squad Deathmatch - four squads of four fight it out with limited vehicle options for a place on the leaderboard.

Rush - the classic Battlefield mode, with one side defending their M-COM stations from the attacking team. Rush supports 24 players on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and 32 players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC

Both Conquest and Domination will be playable in the beta trial, which begins on October 1st. In addition, Conquest, Obliteration, Rush and Squad Deathmatch will all support Commander Mode, allowing highly skilled players to adopt a top-down view of the action and direct their team mates in a strategic way.

Battlefield 4 launches on October 29th for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow for their respective hardware launches.
