Good news For all Battlefield players who always prefered the gameplay experience of older Battlefield titles. DICE added a patch to the Community Test Environment (CTE) that includes a Battlefield classic mode. That this mode will come to Battlefield 4 with the next patch, that was also mentioned by a DICE developer in the forums of Battlefield 4…
The developer answered the Battlefield 4 player question “Can we get something like Classic mode that is similar to Battlefield 2…?” with “It´s coming in this patch.”
More information’s popped up over the days and the same developer mentioned the following details about the classic mode:
Goal: Add a preset that simulates the glory of old battlefield titles!
Classic Preset testable
In this patch we have classic preset testable – and there will be servers running this mode.

I´d say this is a quite big news because I know many people who criticized Battlefield 4 because it simply couldn´t devliver the same Battlefield experience that veteran people know from the past. The hardcore mode of Battlefield 4 was a tradeoff but still not the same what people who enjoyed Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142 and earlier titles wanted to see. But now it´s coming. The classic Battlefield gameplay experience and you can are already find tons of positive statements by players who tested it on the test servers. I think this news might bring me and my friends back to Battlefield 4. What about you?
