Battlelog was first announced at E3 2011 and was subsequently made available upon the release of the Battlefield 3 beta, albiet in a beta itself, with the final verson releasing on October 25, 2011. It was later heavily updated on June 4th, 2012 to help promote Battlefield Premium. Some of the new features included access to all Premium unlock, easier access to Co-Op and multiplayer stats, assignments, leaderboards, unlocks, etc. On October 4th, 2012, Battlelog included support for Medal of Honor: Warfighter alongside Battlefield 3, sharing Battlelog functions almost identically. The website was given a style update in May 2013 that made greater use of WebFonts and reorganized the header menu so as to make accessability easier. It also included preemptive support for Battlefield 4.
Battlelog features social tools, feeds and player stats while also allowing users to manage their friends lists, form squads, create platoons, use rudimentary voice chat, follow their friends' progress in real-time, and engage in forums. In addition to its social features Battlelog also functions as the Game Launcher and Server Browser to join online multiplayer games on the PC, replacing the built-in and secondary systems (such as Steam) found with games else where.
Battlelog can also be used to create Matches that can be played throughout all platforms with whoever the player wants, such as friends and platoon members. As well, the post-game results of each match can be viewed in Battlelog.
Loadouts for weapons and vehicle specializations can be made from a menu on your soldier page. Soldier appearance and dogtags can also be customized from within Battlelog. All changes, once finished, will be synced with your soldier on their respective system. Changes to audio, video, and key bindings cannot be done from Battlelog, and must be done in a game session.
Players can access the singleplayer Campaign without logging into Battlelog, but must be logged into Origin. To access the other game modes, PC players must log onto both Battlelog and Origin.
Battlelog is also available for mobile devices, where most of the same stat-tracking and messaging features are still available.
Battlefield 4 will mark the release of the website's third use, labeled as Battlelog 2.0. It will be integrated into the game similar to Battlefield 3.
- Battlelog was designed by a website development studio called ESN in conjunction with EA and DICE.
