DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will launch with seven modes spread across ten maps.
The modes available at launch will be Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch, Rush, Domination, Conquest, Defuse, and Obliteration. Obliteration and Defuse are new to the series. In Obliteration “two teams face off on medium-sized battlegrounds where one bomb spawns in a random central location,” DICE explains.
Defuse is “an even tighter and quicker infantry-only game mode” in which “players don’t have any respawns at all.”
Battlefield 4 is set to release October 29 in the U.S. and November 1 in Europe for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
