The ongoing Battlefield 4 beta has added a new game mode. Beginning today, gamers can try the all-new Obliteration game mode, in addition to existing gametypes Conquest and Domination.

The Obliteration game mode for Battlefield 4 is designed for 24 players on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and 32 combatants on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. In this mode, a bomb spawns at a random location on the map. Both teams must fight to pick it up, drop it off at one of their opponent's three objectives, arm it, and destroy the objective.

Once the bomb has gone off, the next one randomly spawns in a new location. The game runs until one team has destroyed the other side's three objectives. Commander mode is optional for Obliteration. The Battlefield 4 beta, which features the Siege of Shanghai map, began on October 1 and runs through October 15. The game launches in full on October 29 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC and in November for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Despite the short time between beta and release, DICE believes it has time to implement changes in the final game based on feedback from the beta, executive producer Patrick Bach said recently.
