It might also feature some tanks. Possibly.

One of our favorite EA moves of recent years was when they adapted the Racelog feature from their racing games for the Battlefield series. With Battlefield 4 they are taking that social aspect to a whole new level. It's been proven in the last generation that the more layers of "game" you can fit in, the more you'll engage and KEEP players around.

Battlefield already has a whole lot of stat-tracking and ways to compare yourself with your peers (along with ways to keep up with your statistics when you aren't in the game), yet they have created a whole new level of interactions this year. Take a look:

Anytime, Anywhere No matter where players go, Battlefield is always at their fingertips. Whether theyre heading home on the bus, taking a lunch break at work or lounging on the couch, players can log into Battlelog and check out their stats, interact with friends and much more from their smartphone, tablet, browser or directly through their console.

Battlescreen Battlelog is now more seamless, offering a coherent second-screen experience to give players the chance to better enhance their game. Whether its highlighting attack points on the mini map, keeping track of squad members or playing as the teams Commander, every move made in Battlelog reflects directly back to the game in real-time.

Real-Time Load Outs Gamers can now switch their weapons, change their load outs and check their progression at any time, all with real-time results in-game. Players can also select servers or even launch a match from their devices, making the transition between game sessions easier.

Missions Want to find out who is the best tank destroyer is or who can capture the most bases? A brand-new feature called Missions will allow players to custom create challenges for their friends to compete. Battlelog will also notify players when they have been kicked out of the number one spot so they wont miss a beat to boot back up and fight for the title.

Geo Leaderboards Battlelog is introducing targeted, geo-localized leaderboards that will allow players to not only compete with everyone in the Battlefield community, but with people in their city, in their country or on their continent. This is a great way for gamers to rank up while making new friends, or even adversaries, on the battlefield.

I'm not a 100% sure how some of those will work on a PS4, but EA hasn't said that those features will be smartglass/XboxOne exclusive. I could see there being a Battlefield app on iOS and android that works on both platforms.

Battlefield 4 was already looking like an impressive piece of kit (did I use that right?) but these new features make us think we'll be more addicted to this series than ever before.
