Battlefield: Bad Company Gets Conquest Mode as Free DLC
Battlefield 1942 players that have graduated on to Battlefield: Bad Company may feel like they’re missing something, after all the time playing the original Battlefield outing. Conquest Mode, the prime jewel of BF 1942, is making a comeback to Bad Company this week in the form of free DLC.
Don’t remember much about Conquest Mode? Here’s a refresher:
To win a game of Conquest, the teams in the game (usually two) must capture pre-determined spawnpoints labelled by flags. Depending on the amount of team members in the capture radius of a flag, the capture timer will charge faster, thereby shortening the time of capture.
While capturing, it is possible for the enemy to pause or slow down the capture. A 1:1 ratio of enemies and friendlies in the area will cause the capture to pause, otherwise the capture will slowly go to the team with more friendlies in the area. The speed or direction of capture will not change until members leave the area or are killed. Once these flags are captured, a player can then choose to spawn at the flag’s location, at any of the invisible pre-determined spawn points within its general area.
So Bad Company gamers get a throwback to the roots of the Battlefield franchise for free.
I can’t think of a better way to get back on gamers’ good sides after the DLC weapons fiasco a couple months ago than to give up bunches of free DLC! I might just have to pick up Bad Company soon, after all…
