Battlefield 4 will be using the DualShock 4 controller's new features in an effort to create a whole new gaming experience for first person shooters.
GameSpot is reporting that the game may use the new touchpad on the controller to throw grenades.
However, gaming company, DICE, is not sure exactly what they will do yet, reports OPM.
"We've experimented, but haven't exactly nailed how we want it to behave just yet. Obviously flicking to throw a grenade is an option," Aleksander Grondal, multiplayer producer said to OPM. "There's a bunch of things we're testing out--we just haven't settled on anything."
Just this week Battlefield 4 beta added the new Obliteration mode this week to coincide with the already running Conquest and Domination modes.
"New Obliteration mode is rolling out in the #BF4 Beta (PC/PS3/X360). Server availability will increase gradually. http://t.co/kTZidvPahW," the game Tweeted.
According to Gamespot, the new Game mode allows for numerous amounts of players to take part in the game. For the Xbox 360 and PS3 24 players can be involved. PS4, Xbox One, and PC's will allow for 32 gamers.
In Obliteration mode, a bomb will appear randomly at a location. Both teams will then have to compete to see who picks it up. Whoever gets it first will have to run it over to their opponent's base, drop it at an objective, then set it off, and "obliterate" the target.
After that first bomb goes off, another spawns randomly and the round begins again until all three objectives are destroyed.
Spectator mode will kind of serve as a scouting view for gamers looking to get an edge up on the competition.
The spectator will be able to watch the action in a variety of views including: first person, third person, tabletop, and free cam, Battlefield makers revealed in a statement.
A player can keep tabs on all team points, stats, vehicles, and anything else of importance.
Battlefield's Conquest is the main multiplayer mode for the game that sees players duke it out in a free for all battle, or in teams.
Amazon is also offering a Battlefield 4 bundle, which includes the game, and a PS4 for $399, when the console becomes available.
The game launches on October 29 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. In November, it will release for the PS4 and Xbox One.
