Anfang des Jahres bereits wurde durch Entwickler Dice der „Spring-Patch“ angekündigt der weitere Neuerungen und Fixes für Battlefield 4 mitbringen soll. Lange war aber nicht bekannt wann die Battlefield 4 Spieler mit dem Update rechnen können, was sich nun aber geändert hat. Der Spring-Patch soll am 26.05.2015, also am kommenden Dienstag, erscheinen. Somit wird es am Dienstag zu kurzzeitigem Ausfall des Multiplayers kommen. Die Abschaltung der Server soll ca. eine Stunde dauern.
Der Patch wird folgende Änderungen mitbringen:
– These are the five new weapons:
– New fan favorite Assault Rifle Picked based on its unique burst gameplay and massive fan desirability
– New Carbine
A unique bullpup carbine with built-in vertical grip
– New PDW
A unique PDW with built-in silencer
– New Sidearm
Unique long range “sniper” sidearm using magnum rounds
– New LMG
Magazine fed LMG, which with the new weapons balance, plays in between a belt-fed LMG and an AR – your “run and gun” LMG
Full weapons balance pass
In the Spring Patch, we have also revamped the damage, falloff and suppression model. With this pass, we’ve touched every single weapon in the game – and how they play.
Our goal has been to create distinct roles for the weapon classes, and award skill of the player through increased recoil and by bringing back the 2-bullet headshot!
Return of Gun Master
Next up, we are bringing back Gun Master game mode – which gained its popularity in Battlefield 3: Close Quarters.
Gun Master is played like a Team Deathmatch game. The twist is that you don’t get to choose the weapons used. You swap weapons every time you get two consecutive kills on an opponent and whoever is the first player to get a kill with the final weapon wins!
The mode will contain the following five presets with at most 18 different weapons in each:
– Standard This setup contains rifles, machine guns, shotguns and pistols and ends with the M9 bayonet
– Classic rifles, machine guns, shotguns and pistols ending with a M9 bayonet
– In this preset you can only use different kind of pistols, ending with the survival knife
This mode will let you play with DLC weapons – including the Phantom bow Troll Seeing how Gun Master is a “party mode”, we had to make a silly weapon list too! This one starts out with
ballistic shields (as weapons) and it’s downhill from there
