Battlefield 4 Commander tablet app launches on November 19th
Battlefield 4 launches in less than two days, but it won’t be with all the promised features. At least when it comes to the new Commander mode. While players will be able to play as the Battlefield 4 Commander on PC and consoles, the dedicated tablet app will launch a few weeks later, on November 19th.
DICE confirmed that the app, which is a separate app from the Battlelog app, will launch on iOS and Android devices on November 19, roughly three weeks after the game is released. Players will be able to use the app to play as the Commander and lead a team, even if the actual match is taking pace on PC or consoles.
The Commander feature gives one player the role of leading their team in a match, and can help his team in various ways, from dropping supplies and vehicles, to UAV scans. The Commander can even launch Tomahawk missiles against enemy targets.
While the Commander app will be separate from the Battlelog app, there will be integration between the two apps. The regular Battlelog app is expected to receive an update as well.
