DICE discusses how the new Capture-the-Flag mode will work in End Game
DICE has posted a new blog post on the official Battlefield 3 blog giving fans an insight on how CTF mode will work in End Game DLC.
The star of End Game is the addition of the dirt bikes, which allows players to experience Battlefield in a new way. DICE says
It’s the perfect getaway vehicle for when you’ve snatched the enemy flag and need to wheelie back to your home base. The addition of a passenger seat means you can have some protection while boosting away from your pursuers.
Capture-the-Flag in End Game is the same classic FPS CTF mode that many fans have known in other games. Each team has one flag, and in order to win, you must take the other team’s flag and bring it to your base. Fans who have played Battlefield 1942 will be familiar with how CTF will play in BF3.
There’s a timer ticking down once you are within capture radius, and the time it takes to recover the flag is directly affected by how many friendly soldiers you have in the flag’s capture radius. Once it’s recovered, it will be automatically placed back home in your base again.
Once you’ve captured the enemy flag, it’s carried on the back of your infantry soldier or attached to your vehicle. While we love the fast and agile dirt bike, you will always have to weigh its speed against its low safety against enemy fire.
