Battlefield 4’s Next-Gen Second Screen Features Explored

Battlefield 4

DICE recently engaged in a Q&A with the Xbox Wire staff in order to shed some light on Battlefield 4‘s relationship with next-gen consoles and how the second screen and voice command features will work. In the interview, DICE’s Executive Producer Patrick Bach goes over the advantages of having a second screen experience for the next generation of consoles, citing Xbox’s SmartGlass as a way players can control the battlefield by viewing an overhead map. He goes on to say that they’re looking into features on the Kinect that can “enhance controls including peeking and leaning and tracking head movement as well as incorporating voice commands.”

The new generation of consoles will also help bolster the experience since now they have the hardware to support 64-player matches running at 60 frames per second.

Bach went on to speak about the returning Commander Mode and how Battlefield 4 will allow for second screen control by giving players the ability to play as the Commander on tablets.

You’ll be able to test out the Second Screen features for yourself once the game is released for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Oct. 29, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions releasing with their respective console launches.

The semi-open beta will start for preferred players on Oct. 1 for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with everyone else able to join in on the action Oct. 4.
