With Battlefield 1 Coming, Battlefield Companion App Getting Complete Overhaul
Say goodbye to the Battlelog Mobile App.
DICE has announced a major change for its Battlefield companion app. Posting on the game's website, the developer explained that the Battlelog Mobile App, as it's called, will be completely overhauled.
Part of this is a new name: Battlefield Companion. According to DICE, the app is "designed to make your mobile Battlefield experience even better."
The app will have a "fresh look" and "better navigation," according to DICE. It will also be updated to support Battlefield 1, DICE's new World War I shooter that launches on October 21. The app currently supports Battlefield 4, and that will continue to be the case when the update comes out.
Using the app, players can also access their "Career" page that highlights their stats and achievements. Users can also track their friends' progress here.
Another element of the Battlefield Companion app is a customization feature that allows users to choose a loadout while they're out shopping, for example, and then use it in Battlefield 1 when they get home.
If you are enjoying the Battlelog Mobile App, you may be happy to learn that DICE will not force you to update the app to the new Battlefield Companion. It will remain available after the new update.
The change from Battlelog Mobile App to Battlefield Companion comes after DICE recently did away with Battlelog on consoles in favor of a new, cleaner menu system.
Battlefield 1 comes out on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You don't have to wait that long to try out the game's single-player and multiplayer, however, as a portion of both modes will be available in the Play First Trial available to EA/Origin Access subscribers starting on October 13.
