The forthcoming shooter Battlefield 3’s online team deathmatch play will feature a maximum of 24 players, according to a piece over at the BF3blog.com.
The blog claims that DICE, developer of the hit Battlefield series, confirmed the news at this year’s Gamescom.
It also stated that there will be no vehicle use in team deathmatch mode. The maps will be kept tight to ensure players will be constantly battling.
Both users of the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be given an equal game as the above news applies to both consoles.
However, the PC version will be able to support as many as 64 players at any one time – although that’s only in the conquest mode.
This would confirm the rumours regarding online play details that were circulating as far back as February.
Meanwhile, EA last week released a four page fact sheet relating to Battlefield’s online play – including details on weapons, vehicles and maps.
The weapons information states that there will be four classes – entitled Assault, Recon, Support and Engineer – with over 50 different weapons to choose from.
On the vehicles front there are over twenty different methods of getting about the battlefield, something rival game Call of Duty can’t offer.
Battlefield 3 will come with nine different maps, although more are expected to be released throughout the game’s lifespan as downloadable content.
