The first images of Battlefield 3’s Battlelog leaked out the other day but not much information was given for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC shooter’s social network service. DICE has now dropped the details for how players will be able to communicate and share with each other outside of the game.
“We want to make Battlefield 3 a more social gaming experience and it all starts with Battlelog,” says Fredrik Loving, Battlelog Producer at DICE. “We are changing how you communicate, play, compete and share content with their friends, extending the in-game experience to be accessible from your home computer, on your handheld devices while commuting, or wherever you may be.”
DICE wants to make sure that players know that Battlelog will be completely free unlike its competitor, Call of Duty Elite for Modern Warfare 3. The Battlefield 3 social network will let players bring together friends and foes into a single location.
Like the news feed on Facebook, Battlelog’s Battlefeed posts current events from your network in real time whether it is friends ranking up, receiving awards or achievements, or unlocking new guns. The Battlelog will also show when friends are looking for help in the game’s multiplayer modes.
Player’s game stats from every match are stored and available to browse on the Battlelog. “Battlefield players love their statistics,” says Loving. “Now we will give them everything that they want while adding a social layer on top of that.” And statistic they will get as every bullet fired, every enemy killed and every action is tracked and available in Battlelog.
