New Obliteration Game Mode Finally Comes to Battlefield 4
Yes, I know there have been many indignant complaints about Battlefield 4 essentially being the exact same thing as Battlefield 3, albeit with prettier graphics and a few showpieces of its own - these complaints are not entirely unwarranted either. However, it seems that DICE has decided to throw forth an argument, this time in the form of an all-new game mode, with a sort of Capture-the-Flag mechanic, something that has never been tried before in a Battlefield game.
Essentially it works like this, as explained by DICE:
"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."
Interested? It seems like a smart play on DICE's part, one that they have been badly in need of. Well, if you're excited, go check it out on the open beta going on right now. Good luck!
