Conquest in BF: Bad Company

Conquest in BF: Bad Company

EA and DICE are finally ready to release the Conquest mode to the Battlefield: Bad Company community, being available on thursday. This is the classic mode being used in previous BF games, and I will certainly start playing Bad Company again for this fantastic mode.
Update: Conquest trailer added.

Its about time!

They had said that this mode was going to be out at the same time it was released though. Better late than never I suppose.

Right Puma and now we have waited 2-3 Month for it ;)

the game was released 23 of June. So, that makes it little over than one month.........

Oh hell yes the best just got even better, i really hope they keep adding more things to the game like more maps or weapons. If they do i'll never stop playing this ;)

From the screenshots, I don't think they removed the grain effect. The water also looks worse. Too bad, but this mode will be better.

Damn, just two days away. I've been waiting for that one since the game released.
Commented on 2008-08-06 00:06:36
when will they release the QBU88 sniper rifle?
Commented on 2008-08-06 00:38:36
Why would the mode effect the graphics?

And hurray! I've been looking forward to this as a replacement to Gold Rush, which got really repetitive imo

Yes dude, as if adding a new game mode would make the water look worse???!! What kind of sense does that make?!

And, the grain filter, it's a artistic direction option, why would they remove it?

What about commanders, more free-form squads, and jets (among other things)?


Good to see though, BF aint BF without conquest.

Oh yes, been waiting for this for a while :D Back to Bad Company, now.

Innovation doesn't hurt now does it? ;)
Gold rush is an amazing new mode and a gush of fresh air. I'm not so sure i'm gonna touch the conquest. i like the more front line focused gameplay of gold rush, and the sense of a real battle developing (attackers invading the centre of city!), whereas sometimes in conquest you frequently saw people running back and forth between flags, with no sense of strategy.

But i do agree with you thought, chain of command would have been perfect

Nah it doesn't hurt at all. I actually loved Titan in the 2142 beta. I never purchased the retail game though. I was too offended that they nerfed jump pods in the beta. They were so f'n awesome before.

From the Bad Company beta, well, I didn't really care for it or Gold Rush. But I can see how some people might like it. I think I might go back to BF2 for a while after the new map(s)/patch comes out, but til then, I'm taking a little vacation from FPS for fighters. I'll be back though, I always come back to FPS.

Hell, I'll probably go back to COD4 before that.. but yeah.. I want more BF! Bring on BF3!

Still the same shitty grainy graphics, heard a rumour we'd be getting an option to turn it off, hope so as it looks like crap.
Commented on 2008-08-07 22:17:25
honestly, the screenshots don't do this game justice. it looks amazing, especially in HD
Commented on 2008-08-07 22:36:04
I love the feel and the looks of the game.. but the bugs -_-. If you compare the bfbc website with the forums, you don't understand how they are able to say the following on the front page:

"Over the last couple of months we have seen an enormous number of players enjoying the Beta, the Demo and finally the full release of Battlefield: Bad Company."

The demo is as buggy as the full game.
