Battlefield 4 developer DICE is rolling out a new update for its social and stat-tracking service Battlelog. Not only does the patch prepare the service for today’s Naval Strike DLC launch, it comes with several other changes and tweaks too.


It follows confirmation that Battlefield 4: Naval Strike will be delayed on PC for an undisclosed length of time.

Now; DICE has published patch notes for its latest Battlelog update, which go as follows:

  • Battlelog now supports the Naval Strike expansion pack for Battlefield 4. The content will be enabled as the release is rolled out on the various platforms.
