Some important changes as to how the game is played. Read on below.


The days until the "Battlefield 3" release are quickly getting smaller. While there's a chance we'll see a decent beta between now and then, "Battlefield" fan can satisfy their hunger for knowledge about the game today, thanks to an incredibly detailed entry at the Battleblog. The post covers every single multiplayer mode in the game, but here's a quick rundown of the information that was dispatched.

"Battlefield 3" will launch with nine maps, spanning across five games modes. Those maps are not broken down in their availability to specific modes – every map will modify to each particular gameplay mode. That's actually a fairly massive amount of multiplayer content on day-one.


Team Deathmatch mode is nothing new to multiplayer – for most games, really – but there's nothing wrong with keeping to the basics. The mode allows for 24 players – two teams of 12 – battling it out to reach a set number of kills. There are no vehicles available in Team Deathmatch, which – is kind of a shame.


This mode moves closer to what you might have experienced in playing "Bad Company 2." There is one vehicle available, the Infantry Fighting Vehicle. The mode allows for 16 players broken into squads of four. This mode will require a deep-level of communication and teamwork with each member of the squad filling their role.


Another "Bad Company" mode, Rush will have your team either defending or detonating M-COM stations. Blowing up each station unlocks the next area. The defenders can stop the attackers by running out their reinforcement tickets. Console rounds will allow up to 24 players, with PC playing with up to 32. Rush also allows access to a ton of vehicles including transports, armored cars, helicopters, and the super-awesome jets.

More importantly, DICE have changed a few things about Rush from "Bad Company 2." Namely, the M-COM stations can't be taken out with artillery or rounds. They have to be armed. Also, if you begin disarming and the timer is going to run out, you can still complete the action assuming the disarmer – is that a word? – isn't killed.


Combining the small-team flavor of Squad Deathmatch with the classic Rush mode, Squad Rush features two teams of four players. You're essentially still playing the Rush mode, blowing up M-COM stations, but with a much smaller headcount. This mode is really meant for tight-knit teams.


Conquest is basically the grandaddy of all the "Battlefield 3" modes. This is the mode you want to play when you're just looking for a massive, full-out warfare experience. All vehicles are available, and each the mode allows for 24 players on console, and either 32 or 62 players on PC. This mode will have your team battling to maintain control of various flag points across bigger maps.

Here's a bit more detailed information.



Battleblog #11: Every Battlefield 3 multiplayer game mode explained

Long standing classic Battlefield game modes Conquest and Rush are back in Battlefield 3, together with interesting new additions to make this our broadest and deepest Battlefield yet. From the close quarters infantry combat of Team Deathmatch and Squad Deathmatch to objective driven all-out vehicle warfare – Battlefield 3 has it all. All of the 9 huge multiplayer maps in Battlefield 3 adapt to all 5 game modes, effectively giving you 45 distinctly different multiplayer experiences to choose between. Without further ado, here are the five available multiplayer modes at launch in detail. What they are, what their respective goals are, and how they play.

Team Deathmatch is of the true classics when it comes to multiplayer game modes, and a game mode that makes its first appearance in a Battlefield game since the original Battlefield 1942. In Team Deathmatch, two teams of 12 players each duke it out on tight knit maps with a distinct infantry focus – there are no vehicles available in Team Deathmatch. For that quick instant action fix, this is the perfect game mode. For players new to Battlefield, this is a good place to start. Once you get the hang of the infantry gameplay, you can move on to deeper modes that include the signature vehicle warfare for which Battlefield is known and loved.

Squad Deathmatch is a larger and more dynamic variety of deathmatch that also features the inclusion of an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV). The IFV can help break a deadlock, as long as you keep it alive with solid Engineer gameplay. The 4 squad setup means that there is a constant battle throughout the game to gain and maintain the lead. Sticking together, keeping your squad healed up, supplied, and repaired are the keys to victory. The squad that can combine the potent Battlefield mix of team play and combat prowess will be proven the winner.

First introduced in Battlefield: Bad Company, Rush has now made its way to the heart of the Battlefield series in Battlefield 3. An objective based mode, the attackers have to arm and detonate pairs of M-COM stations in each area of the map to unlock the next area and the next pair of M-COM stations. While defenders have an unlimited amount of spawn tickets, attackers only get new tickets every time they destroy a pair of M-COMs. If all M-COM stations on the entire map are destroyed, the attackers are declared the winning team. If the defenders manage to deplete the attacker’s tickets to zero (by killing them), the defenders are declared the winners.

As an all-out warfare mode, Rush features a large variety of vehicle setups tuned specifically to that map’s landscape and features. Players can find all types of vehicles on Rush maps, including transport vehicles, armored vehicles, helicopters, and of course, jets. Rush offers a compelling objective based all-out warfare game mode for Battlefield veterans.

If you are familiar with this game mode from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, you might want to know we are refining it for Battlefield 3 in a number of ways, based on player feedback. Some of the gameplay tweaks we are bringing to Rush are:
* You cannot use explosives or shoot at the M-COM to take it out. Only arm and disarm.
* If the attacking team arms the M-COM but runs out of tickets, the match will continue until the M-COM detonates or defenders disarm it
* If the defenders start disarming an M-COM just before it’s about to blow, the explosion is prevented until the disarm is accomplished. If the defender gets killed during the disarm process, the M-COM will instantly blow

Squad Rush is the ultimate test to show which squad is the best of the best. Squad Rush is an extremely tight duel between two squads that borrows the main rules from normal Rush, but in a much more intimate setting. In Squad Rush there are only 2 bases with 1 M-COM station per base, meaning that every M-COM taken or defended in Squad Rush is vital to the victory or defeat of the game. There are no vehicles in Squad Rush, so it’s all down to your infantry fighting skills.

To be successful it’s key that you and your squad mates customize your soldiers to complement each other on the battlefield, in order to keep reviving fallen mates, provide ammo, and perform other essential duties. Squad Rush is often favored by players who know each other’s play styles intimately and want to show their skills in the most personal of combat settings.

Conquest is without a doubt the most classic of Battlefield game modes. Introduced in Battlefield 1942, Conquest has defined the entire Battlefield series (and influenced a lot of other games out there) and encompasses everything that makes Battlefield great. Set over a series of large-scale maps, Conquest is the game mode best suited for the experience of all-out vehicle warfare. In Conquest, two teams fight for control of a number of flags by being the dominant force in the vicinity of each base. Capture and keep control of a majority of the flags and the enemy team will bleed tickets. Killing enemies will also reduce their ticket count, and the first team to run out of tickets loses.

Conquest is a strategic and tactical game that often asks you to make important decisions on whether to attack an enemy base or defend one of your own. Your forces will rarely be enough to capture and hold every base on the map, so in-game communication and quick thinking is necessary to be victorious. Of all of the game modes we have invented here at DICE, Conquest will always have a special place in our hearts.

Tweak your game with Hardcore and Infantry Only settings

Not a fan of vehicles? No problem -- just click the “Infantry Only” box in your server browser when searching for a server game where no attack vehicles will spawn in, only transports. This is a great way to get a feel for the game or the map before you go all-out warfare.

Want a more lethal and tactical game mode where the risk and reward is even higher? With the Hardcore Mode setting, we are leaving you on the battlefield without much external help from the game interface. This game mode modifier will test the limits of your skills.

You can flick the Hardcore switch for any of the regular game modes. Doing so tends to turn matches into more deliberate and tactical affairs, since the penalty for being careless is higher. A lot of players prefer Hardcore Mode since it means that flanking and ambushing pays off to a higher degree, or because of the increased sense of immersion and authenticity that comes with removing user interface elements.

There is something for everyone in Battlefield 3’s adaptable array of multiplayer modes, maps, and modifiers. Add our many customization options for vehicles, weapons and classes, and you can see why we call this our biggest and deepest Battlefield yet.
