DICE details Battlefield 4′s Carrier Assault mode

Posted on March 7, 2014 AT 03:38am

DICE has shared some details about Battlefield 4‘s upcoming Carrier Assault mode, which will be added with the Naval Strike DLC.

Carrier Assault is an homage to the Titan game mode from Battlefield 2142, but now a war rages in the South Chinese Sea, and the objective of the mode is to destroy the enemy team’s carrier ship before they destroy yours—simple really.

So how exactly does a Carrier Assault match play out? Lead gameplay designer Gustav Halling has offered up a handy explanation: “There are two ways of destroying the enemy carrier: either by full map control or assaulting the carrier as infantry. Each round is divided into 2 stages, starting with map control and ending with carrier attack.

“Both teams start on their own carrier and race to control the missile launchers placed on the map, by capturing the control points near them. This will automatically launch missiles towards the enemy carrier throughout the round, eventually destroying its hull and making it open for infantry attacks.

“When this happens for one or both teams, the carrier assault state is started. The team can then either drive a boat out to the carrier and climb aboard, or use the parachute spawn points above it. Once inside, the team must destroy two M-COM stations, which will open up new areas to the carrier, with the engine room being the final one.

“Destroying the two M-COM’s, or bringing down the carrier hull’s health to 0%, will win the match for your team,” he concluded.

Naval Strike will be available for Battlefield Premium members “late March,” and two weeks later for everyone else. The DLC will include four new maps, five weapons, a hovercraft vehicle, 10 new assignments, and Carrier Assault mode.
