Electronic Arts (EA) and DICE studios bring Battlefield stars a new addition to the series. What was indicated in Battlefield 3 has now been officially disclosed. “Carrier Assault Mode,” being released March 30, features a naval version of a fan favorite “Titan Mode” from the futuristic Battlefield 2142, an obvious slam dunk over the Call of Duty (COD) competitors.
Few deciphered the hint of this release in Battlefield 3, where the very small 2142 logo was uncovered on an environmental design. Something this small was picked up by the players, proving to the developers, details are always recognized.
For those new to Battlefield, BF2142, Titan maps were arenas with two enormous air bases and a ground terrain filled with missile launching silos, of which two teams fight to take control. From one of the spawn points on the “mother ship,” there is a launch pad for a transport helicopter and a gunship. On the ground are tanks and mechanical Walkers, manned by multiple people in this deadly adrenaline-powered skirmish.
Once the shields are disabled, silos can continue attacking the enemy ship until destroyed, but the fastest way to bring down the beast is through infiltration. Players can fly onto the base by helicopter, or they can launch themselves from the transport vehicle on ground. After the players get past the mines that the enemy units most likely deployed, close quarter combat begins. Each level needs to be taken out to open the core of the ship. Once the core is opened, players will fire with their side arms, launch grenades, and detonate mines to trigger a massive explosion that will take down the enemy Titan. This is a race to the finish line because, often enough, the enemy team will be fighting on the home base, attacking the other Titan simultaneously. The final victory march is a full speed run, diving head first off the stern, bow, or through the escape pods for the only remaining points to be made, and a photo finish-exit to be had. Devotees find this an obvious battlefield slam dunk over all first-person shooters, including COD.
Battlefield 3 and BF4 are generally considered modern-day warfare games. Helicopters are still available and so too are tanks, but Titans and Walkers are history. Fighter jets, dirt bikes, 4-wheelers, boats, are just some of the vehicles at a BF soldier’s disposal. The maps are bigger than ever and guns from each class are modifiable from the scope to the barrel. Many fans have been waiting month after month for further details on the 2142 based DLC package, now known as “Naval Strike.”
For people who still do not get it. The game is a virtual reality of modern warfare, simulating strategic ingenuity and initiative-taking one would see on a real life battlefield. The graphics alone will take the player into an explosive environment that might make the girl run and hide, or cry and wine like a lonely COD player putting on a real pair of boots. Snipers are always a threat, but there are ways to sneak up on the opponent to slice their throat and take their dog tags. If players are soldier enough.
Battlefield 4 Battlelog currently lists 26 awards and over 20 nominations the masterful game received in 2013.
All of the exciting gameplay in Battlefield is impossible to mimic, and COD, for many, is merely an ugly stepchild. What news is there for the overly rated Call of Duty game after the newest Battlefield slam dunk? Fresh skins for Xbox COD fans Feb.18 from $1.99 to $3.99 might not be quite the consolation they might have wanted.
