DICE: No Damage from BF4 Launch; New Patch; Carrier Assault Details

Battlefield 4 PC Game Update Mar 6 Patch Notes are quite lengthy, describing fixes and tweaks to various aspects of DICE's military shooter sequel. Among all the changes is word that the game's maximum rank has been increased to 120. Also, GameSpot (thanks CVG) has a report from a financial conference where EA CFO Blake Jorgensen explained to investors that a buggy launch has not damaged the Battlefield brand, saying consumers have been "very responsive" to the patches and blaming the problems with the game's launch on complexities of working on the new console systems. Finally, there's an update on The Battlefield Blog with details on the Carrier Assault mode that's part of the Naval Strike expansion. Lead gameplay designer Gustav Halling explains this should be right in the comfort zone of Battlefield 2142 veterans:

"Carrier Assault is an homage to the Titan game mode of Battlefield 2142, but this time the all-out war rages in the South Chinese Sea, and your objective is to destroy the enemy teamís carrier before they infiltrate and destroy yours. Our goal has been to make Carrier Assault a really engaging game mode, and we truly believe the amount of variety present each round will assure this. You start out fighting a big-scale war with sea, land, and air vehicles controlling the map, and then everything evolves into an infantry-focused, close quarter fight inside both carriers at the same time!"
