Battlefield 4 Classic Mode preset is here!

Classic Mode Server FilterOnce upon a time, we discussed what a “Classic Mode” might consist of and how the community might accept it should DICE create a server preset (like Normal and Hardcore) for this mode. Server admins have been able to set up their servers to operate with the “classic” settings, but they have been few and far between, and not always easy to find.

With the recent “Fall Patch” that implemented many things from the CTE, such as triage (revive timer), and improved HUD settings, DICE also added the Classic Mode preset. In a recent blog post about it, Battlefield explained what the preset is:

* No 3D spotting (no doritos, but you still have a minimap, and spotted enemies will show there).

* 100% health, but no regeneration.

* Squad leader spawn.

* Mag pool reloading (you lose the remaining ammo i...

Final Stand reveal – play it early on the CTE

Final Stand

Today, Battlefield revealed the theme for the Final Stand DLC slated to release later this Fall. Final Stand will be the last (scheduled) DLC package of Battlefield 4 (there has been some speculation of a pack of re-imagined maps, but it has been no more than a rumor to date).

Final Stand will take place in snowy Russia, and the fiction involves scientists working on experimental weapons. One map is said to include a battle pick-up that will be a rail gun firing powerful bursts of kinetic energy. In the trailer released today, the map Operation Whiteout is shown to include the prototype hover tank. The Battlefield Blog post states that players will discover these prototype weapons and vehicles, which makes me wonder if the hover tank will be unlocked via capturing a point (expect that capt...

Battlefield 4 CTE – Triage and other changes

triageDICE continues to implement changes to the Battlefield 4 Community Test Environment (CTE) in an effort to test potential improvements to the game. The most recent wave of changes offer some improvements that are sure to please a number of players should they make it to the official game build.

A significant UI change that many players have been clamoring for is called “triage”. With this, the revive icon is changed to include a progress circle (much like what you get when arming/disarming an MCOM. This progress meter indicates to you how much time is left before the player becomes unrevivable. This would allow a medic to know if they have enough time to charge the paddles, as well as prioritize numerous downed allies. This will be a very welcome improvement to the game.

The CTE is also tes...

rsz_dice-platoon-640

Platoons, which made their debut in Battlefield 3, will finally be returning to Battlefield 4 on February 27th.

Unlike the Battlefield 3 platoon, which was mostly appearance based, there will be some distinct new features in this iteration, which emphasize how well the members in a platoon do both together and individually.

New Features will include:

– The ability to create and join a Platoon for up to 100 members.
– Basic Platoon management such as inviting, applying, and promoting/demoting members.
– A private and public Platoon feed, where you can communicate and coordinate.
– A Platoon emblem and tag that all members can easily apply.
– The ability to earn stats for your Platoon and rank it up, and see all the matches you played together.

Platoons can rank up from 1-10 (with more to ...

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike: Release Date, New Weapons and Vehicle, Carrier Assault Game Mode [UPDATE: March 30th Release]

bf4-naval-strike

DICE revealed today that the Naval Strike DLC will be releasing in late March [UPDATE: March 30th per the screen cap below] for Premium users, and since then more information has been shown on the relevant Battlefield page

Within Naval strike will be four new maps with wide variety in them, 5 new weapons, submarines for commanders, hovercraft, and the anticipated aspect, the new Carrier Assault mode, which is a re-image of the fan-favorite mode from BF2142, and one that many were hoping would make a re-appearance in Battlefield 4. Well it turns out it will be, but on the massive frame of a carrier ship, rather than a behemoth airship (though both are cool).

Here are the details:

* 5 weapons all-new to Battlefield 4
* Introducing the amphibious hovercraft vehicle
* Carrier Assault game mod...
