According to the official Battlefield blog EA has decided to bring its players closer together much like Activision are doing with their recently announced Call of Duty Elite.
The major difference is that EA’s version will be completely free with no announced plans of having gamers pay to upgrade which gives their new Social feature a slight edge.
“Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the
games extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match
mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination featuring
powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also
lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice
chat and follow your friends progress in real-time, and more.
Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)… zero
dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features
in the near future!”
I wouldn’t expect it to have as many features as Call of Duty: Elite but at least it shows just how series EA are about finally taking Call of Duty’s top spot.
