Battlefield 4 Trailer: Battlelog and Second Screen Details
A new trailer has leaked for Battlefield 4, detailing DICE’s efforts to create synergy between the game and mobile devices.
The trailer above gives a brief overview of the new Battlelog and Battlefield 4′s second screen features. For starters, the Battlelog app will allow players to check their stats, change their loadouts and browse servers to play while on-the-go. This makes it so they can set up a game while they’re away from their console, so they’ll be able to easily jump in once they’re ready.
Players will also be able to use their tablets as second screens that give access to maps, allowing them to set up attack points and see what their squad mates are doing at any given time. You’ll also be able to customize your loadout while waiting to respawn after a death, which is then transferred to the game. The app also allows for quick server browsing and can let you join different servers instantly.
A new feature called “Missions” lets players set up their own goals with their friends in order to see who is the best at any given objective. Once a goal has been met, you’ll be notified so you can try to beat your friend’s score.
Speaking of scores, a new Geo-Leaderboard will be implemented that will let you see how other players around the world are doing in the game. Do you want to compete with someone in France to be the best long-range sniper? Well, the Geo-Leaderboard will let you do just that.
Watch the leaked trailer above and let us know your thoughts on the updated Battlelog app and its brand-new features. Watch out for the game when it’s released on Oct. 29. 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow soon after.
