Battlefield 4 developer DICE has opened up new information on their official blog to reveal just what exactly their new Spectator mode has to offer for players of the modern warfare FPS.
With the crazy moments that happen only in Battlefield, the impressive skills of top players, and the amazing Frostbite 3 visuals, we really wanted to give everyone a chance to view Battlefield 4 matches – not just those participating in the battles themselves. That is why Spectator Mode was created, to give everyone front row seats to the all-out war of Battlefield 4′s multiplayer.
The main focus of Spectator mode is to allow anyone and everyone to see exactly what is happening on the battlefield with a plethora of information at their fingertips from leaderboard stats through to ticket numbers and player names. Spectator mode, if enabled on a server, can host up to four slots, and will allow the ability to toggle between four different views: First Person, Third Person, Tabletop and Freecam View.

DICE has also ensured that Spectator mode has the ability to be customised to the player, allowing toggling of various information presented.

"We want to give you as much information as possible in the Spectator Mode interface, like squad bars, ticket count, objectives and team names. But you should also be to toggle the different layers on and off, because let’s face it: Battlefield 4 is a beautiful game, and sometimes you want to view it without distractions."

Each view mode is meticulously detailed so make sure you check out the blog post which also includes a brief interview with two of its creators: Daniel Matros (Assistant Producer) and Dennis Brännvall (Junior Gameplay Designer).

Battlefield 4 will be available come October 29th for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game will also be made available on November 22nd for Xbox One and November 29th for PlayStation 4.

The sad thing is, that it's something that the community would have naturally implemented themselves if DICE had instead invested the dev time on enabling some manner of modification support.
