NEW GAME MODE: FUBAR
Introducing a new take on Tactical Ops that focuses on infantry battles, with limited vehicles available. Take arms and fight to seize or defend six bleeding capture points in heart-pounding 20 v 20 skirmishes. This new mode is now a permanent addition to World War 3 and features infantry trucks and the new revive mechanic, so players can keep their teammates in the fight if they’re down but not yet out.
The capital of Japan is now a battlefield. Engage the enemy at mid-range on open shopping strips, close the gap in narrow alleyways and side streets, or secure a tactical advantage with vantage points perfect for sniper and DMR duels in Tokyo (Tactical Ops). Also, take a trip to Shibuya (Team Deathmatch), one of Tokyo’s most famous districts. Once a bustling center of commerce with a thriving nightlife scene, this ward now finds itself in the midst of an inescapable conflict. Players will fight through day and night variants of the map with everything they got to dominate its neon-drenched streets and take back this cultural capital.
