It has been revealed that the fourth expansion for Battlefield 3, Aftermath, will include a new mode called Scavenger, that will force all player to start the round with just one pistol, one grenade and one specialisation.
Whilst the new Battlefield 3 Scavenger mode is enabled, flag points will be scattered around the maps, which need to be captured very quickly. The details of the new Scavenger mode were unveiled at a EA preview event in London this week.
Battlefield 3 producer Craig Mcleod explained : “We want people to be running around exploring the map to its fullest,”, removing all the hard works and class bonuses earned by players, to help introduce new players to the game.
“This is great because it doesn’t matter if you’ve played for ten thousand hours or if you’re new and you’ve just bought Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, everyone starts on a level playing field. It comes down to skill.”
“There are a percentage of people who haven’t tried it yet who are thinking, it’s been out for a year, it’s still going strong, it’s still very successful, but can I really get into it?” Mcleod said. “We wanted to create a mode they felt comfortable just jumping into and starting off. It was definitely in our mind.”
