Battlefield 4 beta adds Obliteration mode

Try out one of the series' two new multiplayer game types

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.

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.

The final game will ship with seven multiplayer modes playable on ten maps. Check out the latest Battlefield 4 multiplayer trailer.

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.
