Two teams of 32 will play Conquest, where they must fight for control of key locations on the massive multiplayer map. The map is Rotterdam and playable now in the Open Beta. It’s quickly becoming known for its urban combat, dangerous alleyways, claustrophobic train cars, and verticality.

The best squad from the winning team will be named the Beta Squads champion, with an honorable mention to the best squad from the defeated team.


A full roster of the teams marching into battle will be announced during the warm-up round, broadcast from respective player channels around 10:00 a.m. PDT/7 p.m. CEST.

Expect Battlefield community staples like JackFrags and StoneMountain64 playing together with big names from the FPS world, such as Shroud and I AM WILDCAT.
