EA’s Battlelog: A Fatal Blow to MW3?
According to the official Battlefield Blog, EA appears to be offering a similar web-based application to Activision’s recently announce “Call of Duty Elite” service. The difference? EA isn’t charging you.
“Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)… zero dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features in the near future!?
While the details are yet to be fully revealed, this does seem like a direct competitor to Activision’s “Call of Duty Elite”. EA has mentioned numerous times that they feel this is the year that Modern Warfare will be dethroned. Only time will tell…but offering a similar service for free, compared to Activision’s pay-to-use service, seems like a great start.
What do you think?
