Battlelog for Battlefield 4 Offers In-Game Functionality
A new Battlefield 4 trailer has surfaced today, showcasing the game’s new features in Battlelog.
“With Battlelog for Battlefield 4, what we’ve done is really try to expand the service to be super integral to the game experience itself—to be more than something only the PC gamers can enjoy,” says Jesper Nielsen, Assistant Producer of Battlelog.
According to the developers it will be possible to use the Battlelog on your tablet or mobile device as a second screen to assist you while you’re playing. You can set up attack points on the map and it will be directly applied to the game you’re in.
The Battlelog application on your tablet will also allow you to configure your loadout, so you can change to new weapons and select your accessories before jumping back into the game. Once you click “save”, it’ll be instantly reflected in the game.
If you want to play on a new server while you’re in a game, you can even use the Battlelog app to look for a new server or find out where your friends are playing. The app allows you to do so without having to leave the game.
Another new feature being introduced into Battlelog through the app are “Missions”, which are challenges that you can create for you and your friends. You can, for example, select a mission challenge your friends at claiming the number one spot at being the best tank-killer.
Needless to say, DICE is putting a lot of effort into developing the Battlelog app, so it’ll be interesting to see how well it ties into the game experience of Battlefield 4 once that comes out later this year.
Battlefield 4 is due for release on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 29, followed by a release on next-gen platforms.
