I haven't been keeping up with BF3, but is there an airfare map? With more than 2 planes per side? I never really thought about it but that end-clip looked like it would be fun, just 6 or so planes per side with hectic warfare in the air. Might have to reduce ramming damage to about 0 which would make it unrealistic but if they did that then just making ramming someone throw them WAY of course (in case they were on someones tail). Looks like it would be fun.

Yes, the upcoming End Game DLC will feature an Air Superiority mode.

Here's the Premium "exclusive" video, released today...


Not sure if it's 6 jets per side, but there are much more than in any other BF3 map so far.


--CTF mode
--Air Superiority mode
--Dirt bike
--Drop ship (owned when you control middle flag; drops IFVs and has a parachute spawn point)
--New troop transport vehicle which sports AA and AT capabilities
--4 new maps (styled after the 4 seasons)

I like the idea of chucking C4 from bikes. I wonder if AT mines will also work
look forward to shooting off the bike,   i thought we would have been able to do so from a 4wheeler but nooooooooooo

CTF is great fun! My team was down 3-0 in one round and I managed to tie the game by stealing the flag 3 times and we even won the round The bikes are a bit sketchy tho. There's a ton of teamkills when you don't know who's driving and if he has your or the enemy flag on him

In my opinion CTF is fun on 16 player servers, but was completely cancerous when I was playing on 32 player servers. On the larger servers there always seemed to be 10 people camping the flag with c4.

The bikes are amusing, but there only real purpose is to do a large and fast flank around to the enemy flag and the bugger off as quickly as possible.

Cancerous? Nice adjective.

Yeah the entire concept of CTF in BF3 seems kind of odd. Isn't flag defense just an exercise in laying down C4 and claymores?

Hmm. There were no restrictions on C4 or claymores on the 32 server I was on but neither were the flags infested with them. Game was even and a ton of fun.
looking forward to ctf.. hope it as cool as Halo 2's ctf was. LOL

I thought BF3 was dead but CTF is something truly special.  The maps suck on Rush (of course) but on the console at least with 24 players it's a blast.  Everything I love about Battlefield.  Wide open maps, a few enclosed close quarters areas (usually the two bases and a middle point), super fast moving vehicles.  Absolutely love it. 

I just hope in BF4 they put ATV's, dirtbikes, dropships, etc. in the vanilla game.  I think on the console at least, dirt bikes could have made some of the larger maps much more playable.
