Obsidian Entertainment and are proud to announce the first Public Test Server test of the Global Operations feature!
Global Operations is a PvP and PvE hybrid game mode that is unique in the genre, blending longer term strategy with moment to moment tactics. In Global Operations, players participate in large scale, dynamic battles. This mode introduces improvements to the core Armored Warfare rules, including:
  • Respawning to allow players to be engaged in the battle for much longer
  • Primary objectives that change throughout the match
  • Secondary objectives called “wild cards” that change the shape and direction of the battle in exciting ways
Each match in Global Operations will be a living, breathing battle space that expands on our existing team and class interaction, adding more opportunities for players of all skill levels to contribute toward their team's victory. This mode is an evolution of the genre and delivers more of what you are looking for in a modern vehicle shooter based on your feedback, combining the popular conquest style gameplay with elements of PvE.
