Chaotic Obliteration Mode Added To Battlefield 4 Beta

For those of you lucky enough to get Battlefield 4 looking and feeling playable in the beta/demo, a new mode has launched that looks to bring some focused carnage to Battlefield’s traditionally sprawling maps.

The Obliteration mode pits two teams of sixteen against each other as they seek to pick up a randomly spawning bomb and drop it off at one of the enemies three defendable objectives. Yes, it's every bit as chaotic as it sounds…

The new mode should be available in all versions of the beta by now, if you can drag yourself away from toppling skyscrapers or discovering hilarious bugs.

The game mode currently has no time limit, with the traditional ticket system becoming irrelevant; something that will hopefully peeve them pesky camping snipers.

Players must find the randomly placed bomb and work as a team to transport it to an enemy site, and if games have taught us anything, blowing up the bomb carrier is sure-fire way for the defending team to solve the problem. 

Obliteration continues until all three objectives have been destroyed or the time expires, ensuring some frantic play as the round nears its conclusion. DICE described it as “devastatingly quick or a harrowing tug of war depending on how good your team is at staying together and delivering the bomb.”

The focus of the bomb helps to steer the action to specific places, moving around the map with gleeful abandon, creating new and previously unused chokepoints and situations, which can be likened to Battlefield 3’s Rush mode but without the totally linear focus.

The new game mode is playable with 32-players on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with the usual 24 being present on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Have you hopped into a game yet?

This game mode is hell on PC....
I played it for a few hours and realized it's not for me at all, but if you like having someone elses sniper barrel shoved up your bum then by all means give this mode a go!

its probably just as bad on consoles, but I was playing this in the 64 man-mode... Pure insanity and over half the team decides to snipe. Enough to make me never want to play that mode again ;)

Dice are actually adding a time limit to the Obliteration mode during the course of the day.

Your GFX bottlenecks your CPU and RAM. And 45% OC on your Laptop's GFX? I don't want to believe...

GD separates the graphical settings and AA so playing on Ultra could mean there's no AA ;)

Sorry I should probably been a little clearer. What I meant is that the beta we are playing is doubtful to have all the pretty little settings turned on (like they did in BF3 beta, Tessalation amongst other things wasnt enabled until the actual release) and Im willing to bet this is the same now.
