During the BF4 livestream at Gamescom 2013, players and spectators alike were shown a new game mode called Obliteration. Details were a little vague but as always, Dice has posted a terse and concise explanation on their Battlefield Blog. They’ve also mentioned a second new game mode called Defuse. It is basically the same game type but without respawns, making for a much tighter, intense skirmish for the objective. You can find the post here. Embedded in the article is also a recorded session by YouTuber jackfrags playing the new Obliteration game mode.
