DICE is in the process of adding Battlefield 4's new Obliteration mode to the game's recently launched beta.
Since kicking off on October 1, the Battlefield 4 beta has offered participants an early taste of the game's Siege of Shanghai map in Conquest and Domination modes.
New Obliteration mode is rolling out in the #BF4 Beta (PC/PS3/X360). Server availability will increase gradually. http://t.co/kTZidvPahW— Battlefield (@Battlefield) October 9, 2013
Obliteration is one of two new Battlefield 4 modes. According to 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.
EA has confirmed a Battlefield 4 release date of October 29 in the US and November 1 in the UK on current gen consoles and PC. Xbox One and PS4 versions will be console launch titles later in November.
