DICE details Battlelog in latest BF3 blog update

Wednesday, 20th July 2011 18:55 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

DICE has updated the Battlefield Blog with information on Battlelog, BF3′s new social network, after shots of it leaked out last week.

Players can use Battlelog to build “a network of friends, communicate with other gamers, and compare their Battlefield stats with friends and foes alike,” for free.

“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.”

The team has also incorporated a “fully-featured soldier progression section,” into it, which include full stat tracking for every shot fired and every action performed in the game.

“Battlefield players love their statistics,” Loving added. “Now we will give them everything that they want while adding a social layer on top of that.”

Every match played is accounted for, with all stats represented in full detail.

DICE said more information will be unveiled regarding Battlelog “at a later date.”

    I’d rather them focus on ensuring that the game doesnt ship with any stupid bugs, then adding some social bullshit to the series. DICE cant afford to repeat the mistakes of Bug Company 2

    “We are changing how you communicate”

    Unless it’s trough telepathy, then no, you are not changing anything.

    i think they just had to do it because people want it…and you know…elite. it´s cool. i like statistics. makes perfect sense in a competitive mp game…we´ll see. good that it´s for free because the elite stuff sounded like a rip off right from the start i´ll buy mw3 anyway for sure but upgrade to the paid elite stuff? doubt it. they should give something back to their customers and not milk them all the time. this is bad for cows and bad for gamers. it wont pay for the farmer and not for acti in the long run. greed kills. it may take a while but karma will strike back…”bug company 2″ with all it´s flaws still was one of the very best games this gen imo…
