Battlefield 4 Commander screen on PC vs tablet

The commander screen as seen on PCs vs on tablets.

Battlefield 4 will bring a long awaited commander feature, where one player per team will be able to “commande” his team. The Battlefield 4 Commander will be able to launch missile strikes, deploy gunships, give orders to squads, and more, in order to help his team to victory. The Commander feature will be supported on all platforms, and on tablets as well.

In fact, players will be able to play the Commander on a tablet with no need for a PC or console at all. So far only iOS and Android tablets are supported (sorry, no Windows Tablet support yet). The two images below show the difference in the Commander screen between the PC and the tablets. The PC version certainly seems more detailed, especially the map. But that’s no big surprise, as it runs on much more powerful hardware.

While there’s a difference in graphics and some layout tweaks between the two versions, the feature set remains the same. The commander on a tablet will have access to all the features that are available on the PC.

    Is that a supply drop icon I see? I hope so, supply drops were nice in BF2.

    I especially hope it is because what feels like 80% of the support classes I run across don’t know what that magical box with the word “AMMO” on it does.

      Yes, supply drops have been confirmed for a long time. I think since the commander mode trailer was released.

    Really.. you dont see the Live feed in the bottom left on the PC. You dont see the High Value Target on the PC side vs the tablet. There are so many small things, sorry that yall do no see differences

      The live feed obviously won’t be on the tablet because you are only playing commander, so there’s nothing to be shown there. Also this isn’t final, I assume they would put more detail into the PC option first as this will be their priority, obviously tablet will never be as good as or the same as the pc, but you cannot possibly expect it to.

    It looks like the commander got a specialization bar. Does someone know what they mean?
