Battlelog was introduced in Battlefield 3 as a free social platform that lets you socialize, track stats, plan your next game and more from your web browser.
Since it’s introduction, DICE have introduced further innovations to better the experience in preparation for Battlefield 4, including full Battlelog integration for next-generation consoles and PC. They are also introducing new connected features to make it an even more powerful companion and provide new ways to customize your experience.
You can use Battlelog on your tablet, smartphone and web. Now, in Battlefield 4, Battlelog is fully integrated in-game.
“At any time in-game, you can bring up the Battlelog overlay. For PC and next-gen consoles we have built a new platform to ensure we could bring Battlelog to players in the best possible way while they are playing the game. This means that it is built on the same core technology as Battlelog is on the web, tablet and mobile devices, making it easier and faster for us to update, and keeping it tightly connected to the Battlelog experience outside the game.”
“This in-game overlay will give you access to tons of Battlelog features. You can see what your friends are doing, check their stats and join their game. You can also see who is in your squad when playing multiplayer and look up their profile. Maybe you want to check your standings on the Geo Leaderboards, or create a Mission. It is all available at any time during the game. You can even see how you are progressing towards your next rank or unlocks in real-time!”
Players now have the ability to create custom emblems via Battelog which can then be seen on your in-game character and weapon.
“You will now be able to create Emblems and take them into multiplayer to show off your style. Create an Emblem on Battlelog and then next time you join a multiplayer game, you will see this Emblem on both your gun and soldier – they even show upon vehicles as you enter them. “
Another feature making an appearance for Battlefield 4 is the Unified Game Manager, which will show up on Battlelog as soon as you start playing on a PC or console.
It will offer you quick access to the game-connected features called Real-time Loadout, Remote Joining and BattleScreen.
Set your position to compete against people in your city, state, and country with Geo Leaderboards.
“We looked at leaderboards in BF4 with a lot of scrutiny. When you are number 127,842 in the global rankings for a game, it can feel defeating. That is why we have brought Geo Leaderboards into the mix, where you can set your position to compete against people in your city, state, and country, as well as the world at large.”
“Once you have your location set with Geo Leaderboards, you can take a look at how you are doing. Zoom in and out of the city, state, country, and world. If you find that you are number one in the city, you might want to step it up a notch and see how you compare to people in the state or country.”
“Players will also be divided into Divisions, inspired by FIFA’s Seasons system. All players on a leaderboard are divided into 10 Divisions, depending on your skills and ranking in a wide range of areas such as Kill/Death Ratio, Score Per Minute, and more.”
