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.
