45 Distinct Multiplayer Experiences in Battlefield 3

Get your adrenaline pumping with new details about Battlefield 3’s dynamic multiplayer modes. Forget the same old multiplayer experience that you’re used to; EA DICE is bringing a level of customization that redefines what players expect from online play. With the abundance of options available, you can completely transform your multiplayer game the way you want it. Battlefield 3 offers nine expansive multiplayer maps that automatically reconfigure to adapt to the five game modes, resulting in 45 distinct multiplayer experiences for you to choose from.

The classic Team Deathmatch game mode is perfect for dropping into a match quickly if you're looking to tear through the other team, and work to reach the set number of kills without the aid of vehicles. Squad Deathmatch takes it to the next level, pitting four squads of four against each other as they vie for control of an Infantry Fighting Vehicle. This game-changer is capable of keeping your squad supplied and ready to go at all times during combat.

Rush and Squad Rush, the extremely popular objective-based modes from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, return, complete with fine-tuned tweaks based on player feedback. And of course the classic Battlefield game mode, Conquest, is back. Engage in a sprawling fight against another team for control of a set number of flags through careful strategy and tactics. Mastering land, sea, and air vehicles is the key to victory in this definitive game mode.

Want to elevate your multiplayer game even more? Raise the stakes and choose to play in Hardcore Mode to strip out the user interface for a greater degree of immersion. Not interested in vehicles? Click the Infantry Only box in the server browser to leave out vehicles when searching for a game. Check out all the in-depth details of the multiplayer game modes over on the official Battleblog.

This latest entry in the critically acclaimed franchise is due for release on October 27th. Pre-order your copy of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin today and get ready for the ultimate multiplayer experience.
