BattleBit patch adds fan-favorite game mode, custom servers to follow

The new BattleBit update 1.9.3 brings with it new game mode Capture The Flag, as well as outlining a whole slew of features that will be coming to the shooter.

A new BattleBit patch brings a whole new game mode to the immensely successful FPS game, as the team behind the blocky Battlefield competitor also outlines what’s next for the shooter in terms of community content, changes, maps, and more. If you’re big on BattleBit and want to know about the future, then we’ve got all you need.

The biggest new addition to BattleBit is undoubtedly the Capture The Flag mode that features 254 players – yes, really. It’s available right now, and the team says it is “experimenting” with how the mode copes with so many players, while it will also be playable in 64v64 and 32v32 matches as well.

The team also adds that they plan “to make additional enhancements to Frontline as we are not completely satisfied with its current state of development,” with a King of the Hill game mode planned for future patches as well.

Multu Islands is also getting a “ground up” rework, with even more new maps and reworks on the way. You can check it out in action below.

You can also expect a lot of content coming to BattleBit in the near future, with the team outlining a whole slate of game modes that will become available when community servers drop, which is the team’s next big focus. The modes include:

  • Sniper-only servers
  • Pistol-only servers
  • More competitive, hardcore servers
  • More arcade-style, fewer MilSim servers
  • Flight school servers
  • Ace Of Spades-style voxel servers
  • Clan servers
  • Other servers according to the admin’s preferences

There are also a full set of patch notes, which you can see below. Sadly there are no new BattleBit guns in the update, and there’s one the team says it’ll never bring to the game either.
