Dice and Electronic Arts have confirmed that upcoming shooter Battlefield 3 will support only 24 players in Team Deathmatch Mode. The limitation affects all platforms.

Team Deathmatch, or TDM, will also lack vehicles as part of an effort to focus on smaller, infantry battles according to the BF3blog.

Other modes such as Conquest and Rush will support up to 64 players in the PC version, reportedly.

The PC version of Battlefield 3 still looks to be the definitive version of the game, with console versions suffering smaller player counts in multiplayer and a framerate cap.

Battlefield 3 will be released for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 on October 25, 2011.
