Okay Battlefield fans, this is for you. It appears that Air Superiority will return in the final DLC of Battlefield 3, as the official Battlelog page suggests that this upcoming DLC will feature both the classic Capture the Flag and the Air Superiority game modes. What’s also interesting is that various rumors suggested that Air Superiority would be coming back in Battlefield 4. With the End Game DLC supporting this mode, we can safely say that those rumors are true and BF4 will support this mode from the get-go.
As the DLC’s description suggests, “players will be able to coordinate lightning fast attacks and defenses in the return of the classic Capture the Flag game mode, or engage in massive dog fights in Air Superiority. In the skies, the new dropship introduces the ability to turn the tide with rapid deployment air drops of troop transports”.
Battlefield 3: End Game will come with four vast and varied maps designed for high-speed combat and action, three new vehicles including the fast and agile dirt bikes and a new dropship that provides support to ground troops with vehicle drop capabilities.
DICE has also stated that a new trailer will be revealed in the coming days, and we’re pretty sure that they’ll demonstrate both of these new modes (CTF and Air Superiority).
In case you were unaware of, and thanks to Battlefield’s wiki, “the only objective in the Air Superiority mode is to eliminate the enemy aircraft and secure the air above the map. In order to take the control of the air the team must have more players in the air than the opposite team. Leaving the aircraft carrier or the plane once you’re away from the carrier results in death within 9 seconds. The team which runs out of tickets first loses the match”.
Kudos to NeoGAF for spotting it!
