With the beta dates only days away and the release date in just a month, Battlefield 4 is getting even more exciting to think about. And DICE keeps its gamers prepared for battle with small tidbits of information about the game.
By fundamentally changing some features, Battlelog fully integrates your mobile devices, so you can conduct remote play that is in line "Battlefield 4." The Battlelog experience lets you see a number of important activities, such as the available missions, your friends, reports on the battlefield and notifications for events, to name a few.
"We're also working hard to ensure the Battlelog experience for BF4 on console is on par with the deep interaction PC players have enjoyed since BF3," said Jasper Nielsen, assistant producer of Battlelog .
Battlefield 4's Battlelog lets you tinker with the game even when you're out.
It doesn't end there, as DICE aims to make Battlelog the ultimate companion for "Battlefield 4," regardless if you are in front of your console or PC or away from your gaming devices.
A unique new feature called Remote Joining will also be allowed for "Battlefield 4." According to Nielsen, this allows you to choose which server you want to join without having to first exit your current server then conduct a search for your next one.
Beta Dates and Conditions to Remember
DICE has also released the dates of the "Battlefield 4" beta, as well as classifying who will be able to access them.
The three-day early beta on Oct. 1 will be accessible to three groups of gamers: those who preordered the "Battlefield 4" PC Digital Deluxe Edition on Origin, those who are "Battlefield 3" Premium members, and those who are registered owners of "Medal of Honor Warfighter" Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition.
Everyone else who will play via PS3, Xbox 360 and PS3 can join the beta on Oct. 4. However, there is a catch for Xbox 360 players, as you are required to have a Gold membership in order to participate in the Beta on Xbox Live, for both the Oct. 1 and 4 beta dates.
The beta comes a bit earlier than the release of the "Battlefield 4," which is on Oct. 29 for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 in North America and Oct. 31 in Europe. Release dates for the next-gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One have already been released, with the PS4 version available on Nov. 29 and the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
If you had already gotten the current-gen version, a $9.99 fee will give you an upgrade to the next-gen copy, so you can move your battle to even higher resolutions.
From Current to Next-gen: Easy as Pie
In an interview with Patrick Bach, executive producer of "Battlefield 4," he reveals that though it is a problem for beta gamers not having next-gen consoles, all of the data taken from the current-gen and PC version of the game will reflect in the PS4 and Xbox One experience when it's available.
"We want to get feedback not only from the beta, but also from the actual game when it's out in the market," he said. "We have a history of following up with the game for months and months after it's been released. So to us, it's an ongoing service."
