Battlefield 4 Will Launch With 7 Modes Playable Across 10 Maps

Battlefield 4 will launch with seven multiplayer modes, playable across all 10 launch day maps, DICE has confirmed.

Launch modes include Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch, Rush, Domination and Conquest. In addition to this Defuse and Obliteration will also be available at launch, both of which are new to Battlefield 4.

In Obliteration mode, "two teams face off on medium-sized battlegrounds where one bomb spawns in a random central location,” explains DICE.

"The mission: To pick up the bomb and arm it at one of the enemy's three military installations and blow it up. When the bomb has detonated, a new bomb spawns in a random location, and the race is on again. The first team to destroy all three objectives wins."

Info on Defuse has been a little more thin on the ground, but DICE has now revealed a few more details, saying, "We also have a second all-new game mode in Battlefield 4 called Defuse – where players don’t have any respawns at all for an even tighter and quicker infantry-only game mode. More on Defuse later."

Battlefield 4 is out on October 29th in the US and November 1st in the UK on current-gen consoles. Next-gen versions will be out before the end of the year.

Any BF4 news is amazing and i cant wait to play it. Obliteration sounds like an intresting game mode and will need a good communicating team to dominate the matches, and will deffinetly keep a look out for more Defuse info :)

Call of duty and battlefield have both started doing this thing where they act like they've came up with this "brand new" game mode when in reality they are just stealing modes from each others previous games. Multi-team in black ops 2 is just squad deathmatch and defuse is essentially just search. Love both franchises but regardless it's still hilarious.

Defuse = search and destroy by the sounds of it.
As long as all maps and modes work well with 24 players I'm happy, as I'll be playing on the 360. Put over 250 hours into battlefield 3 so am very much looking forward to this!

Defuse sounds really cool I always thought a Search and Destroy type mode in Battlefield would be very cool.

Obliteration mode a match seems like it will take forever if you pit teams with people who know how to play.

@4, none of the maps worked well with just 24 players on bf3, not even the CQ maps, this game will likely be no different, the maps are made for 64 players and therefore lack the pace and excitement they are supposed to give with only 24 players. Glad to be getting on the one, but good luck with the 360 version.

Aren't all game modes new to Battlefield 4? I think the 4 should be left out ;)

Defuse sounds like Counter Strike to me. Up until now BF4 hasn't really been on my radar as I prefer my online multiplayer in shorter bursts (Gears of War, COD, etc). Giving each player only one life would help a lot and sounds promising :)

Defuse sounds like search and destroy and I was always fond of that mode. Campers rule in game modes with only one life after all, so I expect a lot of sniping LOL Either way sounds pretty generous, but BF always was about MP first and foremost, so it would be heresy not to deliver even if campaign turns out to be as shitty as last one=)

I was just thinking they need to do a search sort of game mode for battlefield 4, rush is a brilliant game mode but sometimes you just wish people would stop respawning.

@7
Operation metro
Damavand peak
Grand bazaar
Seine crossing
All worked perfectly with 24 players in my opinion. Only the huge maps felt to big. And the CQ maps were limited to 16 players not 24 (which was enough also).
