Here’s a bit more detail on what’s included in the beta

  • Mode: Conquest - Battlefield's massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – the action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.
  • Map: Orbital - It's a race against time and hostile conditions as you fight around the site of an imminent rocket launch.

Specialists

Webster Mackay

  • Grappling Hook - Fires a hope that attaches to surfaces. When attached, the rope is retracted and the player gets pulled toward the attach point.
  • Nimble - Allows the player to move more quickly while aiming down the sights.

Maria Falck

  • S21 Syrette Pistol - Fires a syringe at friendlies to provide healing. If it is fired at the enemy, the syringe will do damage.
  • Combat Surgeon - Allows the player to return downed allies to combat with full health when reviving.

Pyotr "Boris" Guskovsky

  • SG-36 Sentry Gun - Automatically spots and engages enemy targets.
  • Sentry Operator - Spots the enemy target when the sentry gun locks on to the enemy in question.

Wikus "Casper" Van Daele

  • OV-P Recon Drone - Spots nearby moving targets and can disorient enemies using EMP blasts. Can also be used to designate targets for lock-on weapons
  • Movement Sensor - Alerts the player to approaching enemies, both while boots on the ground and while piloting the recon drone.
