DICE had promised enhancements to the Battlelog web-service, moving from Battlefield 3 to Battlefield 4, and new trailer today shows us that they're actually quite significant.

In BF3, Battlelog served as a game launcher, stats tracker, and server browser, but BF4 is promising direct second-screen interaction with live games:
With Battlefield, 4 your mobile device and tablet become a window into your game. Get a tactical view of the battlefield, highlight attack points on the mini map, and track your squad mates, all from your device or computer. The improved Battlelog will also allow you to more fluidly control your play sessions. Change your weapons and load outs in real time or select your next match and server without leaving your game. Want to check on your progression while you’re playing? You don’t have to pause or leave – just reach for your mobile.
Watch the video below for the new features in action.

Battlefield 4 is due on October 31st 2013 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions also in the works.

That actually looks pretty damn cool. Any word on whether it still runs in a web browser? It kind of looked like it was its own standalone thing now

Still runs in a browser, you can also have the mini-map on a second monitor.

i wondering if you can be logged on with 2 devices, eg i dont have 2nd monitor but would love to use my ipad for the mini map

EDIT: I just watch it, you can how f***en awesome, really really looking forward to this game!!! wow!!!

It looks like it will run on browser, however it also looks like an app will come out of the iOS. EA has just released they are making all there money from iOS now so cant see them not making app.

They're really emphasising IOS, it better not be just IOS, or I'll be pissed.

My understanding is that it's not specifically an iOS app, but just an extension of the Battlelog webapp, so supported across the major browsers with the same functions.

yeah but it not hard to make iOS app to do the same thing so they probably will and how video shows him customizing his gun does look and act like app then website

Yeah, map on a second screen or some sorta pad device would be good.

Didnt watch OP's vid but goddam battlelog for BF3 was a pain in the ass for me. Only tried it in chrome but the server browser didnt work and i could only access 2 maps that were in my match history tab. I think the quick play option got me into those 2 servers initially but then the quick play didnt seem to be of any use. Ended up only ever being able to play on a TDM 500 count server i think when 'blowing up the mcom' was my fave game type in BFBC2.

Yeah this is sweet!

A lot of complaints about BF4 is that is' just more of BF3. However it does seem they are really just pushing the whole thing a lot further.


I hope as squad leader, if you use the tablet to set objectives. That it'll also allow you to draw on the map to set attack routes ect.

i think it is only fair, so when their database server crashes it is down for all platforms.
