Considering it is TDM/SQDM, it might be interesting.

Cue COD/Console bitching. I'm getting it, but I'm apparently more open to BF3 being its own thing than most.

looks exactly like F.E.A.R. Combat, too bad it doesn't have the slow mo mechanic

Most people weren't okay with BFBC2 being it's own thing either

Well, that makes sense, considering. A lot of this direction started in Bad Company 2. Smaller, infantry focused maps got their start there. Squad DM/Rush, too.

I keep hearing that we may get another game mode in this (note: may be total NeoGAF misinformation). Am I completely crazy for wanting a pure CS plant and defend, single elimination mode? Yeah.. I know.. sooo not battlefield :D

FEAR COMBAT BRO!! The game was so innovative!! And it's free to play, AMAZING GAME. Even Killzone 3 gunplay (destruction aesthetics) are borrowed from FEAR .

This DLC is 16v16 TDM, wait for the next pack which apparently has the biggest maps ever! Haven't we heard that before????

Where does it say that it's TDM only again?
Commented on 2012-03-13 18:33:59
Beyond terrible.

Bach says all four maps support every pre-existing gameplay mode, plus a brand new one the studio isn't revealing just yet.
QQ.

It was only TDM when it was first announced because of the player size but apparently going by that below it's open to all gameplay modes. No idea how your going to play Rush on that Tower map? Rushing down the stairs perhaps lol!

With no vehicles or large open expanses, these maps will be popular Team Deathmatch destinations, but Bach says all four maps support every pre-existing gameplay mode, plus a brand new one the studio isn't revealing just yet. To keep these more intimate encounters from feeling overcrowded, DICE is also dropping the player count. Sorry PC players, but there are no 64-player matches in this expansion pack.

I'm betting new mode will be CS style bomb defusal.

I would be pretty thrilled with that but I think CTF seems more likely.

It was never TDM only. It was TDM only in the freak-out-lets-assume-the-worst response from all the fans of freaking out and assuming the worst.

It kinda seems impractical to play anything besides TDM. I dread to think what conquest would be like contained within a small building...lol

Why? Think COD "Domination" on like.. any COD map. TDM layouts are also different.. there could still be more level than the minimap you're seeing in the video (though I sorta doubt it on this one).

I guess you can't play objectives in CS Office either?

Oh, you CAN. Just like you're going to be able to play rush in this building...lol. Still seems like a rediculous notion to me.

This map makes me glad they're improving the flak perk, and also for no-explosives (and auto shotgun) servers on the PC :D

I want to see the rest of the map pack. I'm hoping that the others will at least offer a few more open areas. Someone just compared this to Nuketown, which has me running for the hills. And that horrible map was super popular. What is it with people loving the shit out of the worst levels and configs in any particular game?

Only going by the Official Forum and tbh from what i originally seen it did indeed look like it was TDM only. I mean how the hell are they going to implement Rush into that map? Crazy, should be fun when this hits Origin though and let's see how many of the naysayers buy it lol!

Sad that no one here played FEAR Combat, it was truly an amazing game. No doubt it influenced CoD and Killzone big time.

The shooting was so satisfying....

About the game

    Melmoth like here (norway) i know people who preordered it, none got it. so they can't have sent many this way. Personally i wasn't planning on getting one, but i feel sorry for those who tried and failed. (6 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth themselves), they should have put out a few more runs to atleast cover the people pre-ordering it. i'm fine with limited time availability otherwise. (8 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the whole nes-mini thing was lame. i understand they planned it as a limiteds-time release so people could get something cool for christmas 2016, but when they misjudged the marked (which they said.. (9 minutes ago)

  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah they certainly decided against trying to meet demand. They probably wanted to focus on Switch demand above all (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Or they just didn't feel like it. I have one in the box. I think I'll keep it there for now heh (1 Hour ago)
