First Glimpse of Battlefield 3 New Battlelog
Just as the Call of Duty series is getting free social networking features with Call of Duty Elite (the beta of which begins today), Battlefield 3 will bring with it something similar in Battlelog.
As announced during E3, Battlelog provides players with a place to check out statistics, track unlocks and awards, communicate with other players, and so on.
The German Battlefield blog seems to have jumped the gun by posting several pictures of Battlelog from an alpha trial version. The post, originally located here, has since been pulled, but not before fansite Battlefieldo noticed.
Anyone familiar with Facebook should be right at home with Battlelog. It features a news feed (called a Friends Battle Feed) that shows friends discussions with each other, forum posts, and notifications for when they reach a new rank or earn new items. Theres also a friends list and chat system that features voice chat and allows you to join a friend whos already playing multiplayer online on PC.
A statistics page also highlights everything youd expect: time played, score per minute, accuracy, kill-to-death ratio, time spent with each kit, level up progress, awards, etc. The one image of this page doesnt reveal if it will offer something as deep as what Bungie has provided Halo players for years, like heatmaps.
Battlefield 3 will be out on October 25. While well definitely learn more about Battlelog before then, there has been no indication that players will get to try it out before the game launches.
