Battlefield 4 Battlelog Shows Off Multiple Platform Connectivity

Connectivity across multiple digital platforms is the wave of the near future.

As evidence of that, check out the new Battlelog trailer for the upcoming Battlefield 4. Basically, BF4 can go wherever you go if you've got a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

That's because you can interact with the game via any of those platforms. You can change your loadout and even search for specific servers your friends are using. This can all be done remotely and any changes you make will be made in real-time in the game. So, when you return to your comfy armchair in the living room, any updates you made will have been completed. Even if you die and you're waiting to get back into the match, pick up your smartphone or tablet and change your loadout if you so choose.

These are the kinds of features I find a little unnecessary, and a tad creepy. But I'm sure others will enjoy the flexibility.

Thanks, Zak!

A new generation is a new chance to take down the dated corpse of Cod.

The BF series is incredible and excels in every way over COD.

Battlefield 4 definitely stands the best chance of doing that.

Those games continue to excel all the time.

The good thing about the development of the game, Activision claims that it would take too long to create a new engine, which is why they are using a 15 year old engine. But Battlefield doesn't have that problem, because the engine they use, has a completely independent team working on it, who are free to spend the 2 years between games developing the engine.

It's why Battlefield 4 is a huge improvement in graphics, and looks beautiful compared to COD Ghosts.

I can't say I mind taking interactivity to a new level. Granted, yes, there can and probably will be things that just shouldn't happen, but this Battlelog seems like it could be nifty.

I would like to see an extension, like this, in Dragon's Dogma - only you could use a tablet, smartphone, etc. to tinker with your pawns.

They seem pretty useless to me, or at least not necessary.

The question of whether something is necessary or not is a pointless and endless endeavour to justify something.

The term necessary suggests something that is absolutely crucial in the overarching host. IE water is necessary for human survival.

So to say that the Apps aren't necessary, I can only assume you mean to the profitability and continued improvement of the Battlefield franchise, so I have to ask, why? Anything that can be considered an improvement is a great thing as far as I'm concerned.

Back to what you originally said, they are VERY useful, COD has had a companion App for 2 years now and it is really cool. You can sit at work in your down time and look over your stats, see where you can improve, change weapon loudouts. It's nifty.

EDIT: I broke my own argument......

Companion Apps are going to be one thing that will become part of the future of gaming. I must say, it is the first sign of innovation I have seen in the industry in ages.

Honestly Ben, your reluctance to accept the Smartphone as a useful device not just for contacting people, could be a downfall in the next-generation. IF companion Apps DO become a main feature, and it very much so looks that way, with most of the AAA titles using them, consumers should get an insight into a certain titles companion App. It could be included into the reviews. Would definitely be unique, no one else is doing that yet.
