DICE has confirmed that each platform for Battlefield 4 (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 & 4, and PC) will all have separate servers. This means that gamers that have an Xbox One will not be able to play Battlefield 4 with their friends on Xbox 360, or even on other consoles. The reason for this may be because next-gen consoles will support 64 player matches and two commanders, where current-gen does not. 

 

While this may be disappointing to some gamers, DICE released a new trailer showing off some of the new Battlelog features, which may make up for it. Players will be able to use their smartphones and tablets as a second screen, allowing them to use this as a mini-map, updating in real time, and will allow them to set attack points for their teams.

Users will also be able to update their loadouts while waiting to respawn, or even when they’re away from their system of choice. These loadout updates will apply immediately in game. Bored with the current server? Players will also be able to browse and select other servers, or jump right into a friend’s game.

Check out the full Battlelog trailer below and make sure to pick up Battlefield 4 when it releases across platforms October 29th!
