Swedish video game developer DICE is getting ready to release its highly-anticipated game ‘Battlefield 4’ and it has been revealed by one of the studio’s developers that Battlelog will be compatible with all versions of the game, however, the system’s latest Battlemap feature will not be coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
A new, second-screen feature Battlemap allows players to keep track of the action thanks to a full radar-enabled overhead map on a nearby computer or smart device. Jesper Nielsen – assistant producer for Battlelog – has stated that this feature will work only with PC and next-gen versions of ‘Battlefield 4’, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. He said, “Battlelog is powered by the web, and that has a lot of implications. There are a lot of different things you can do, things you can do faster, rather than building stuff in native code.”
Nielson also mentioned that, this time, Battlelog will be completely web-based and will enable the studio to implement new updates easily. He went on to explain that it will be much easier for the DICE team to update things from the in-game Battlelog than it would normally be the case. Usually, they would have to do patches, but here they will be able to do things by the flick of the finger.
DICE has previously confirmed that ‘Battlefield 4’ will be released on October 29, 2013 in the US and on November 1, 2013 in the UK, on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. According to the studio, next-gen versions will be available ‘this holiday’.
