Just include muting, because I don't want to know how many people my mother has slept with :)


Seems a little odd that TF2 has had this built in forever, any specific reason why BF3 didn't have it, anyone know?

I can't think of a reason other than the Bro shooter-fication of the series. I'm certain that BF2 had squad communication, which worked out pretty well.
But Battlelog had a VOIP function, it was poor but it worked, but only with friends I think. Kinda ruined the ability to get teamwork going with randoms.

It looks pretty interesting. I heard that they're making some DLC already

Typial, but I still really hope that atleast a third faction will be implemented, I want a European Army and I do remember something about a Chinese Type-99 was spotted in the artwork. And then I hope the Command Feature will return. (Servers should be able to choose this feature)
An European army would be gorgeous, just thinking about Challenger 2's and Leopards rolling side by side as a Typhoon blows across them makes my body tingle!

Yeah my weapons of choice for Medic, Support and Sniper are l85, l86 and l96, I can't tell you how much I want a Challenger 2 in game.

BC2's servers are still online. I guess a few years, at least.

That's a shame but you never know, those things might turn up in BF4!

Cheers for the heads up.

I loved the X1 vids. I don't traditionally play FPSes on a console but I might start.

I'm a bit concerned about Commander mode, because mainly any old numpty can be a Commander by the sounds of it. And it looks like a pivotal role (didn't play BF2). So the difference between a good Commander and a bad Commander could really change the outcome of a battle.

Can someone explain the Tablet feature to me please? Is that an actual Tablet application that connects or was it a touch screen PC of some sort?

Also, they said it was multiplayer but it looked like the opposite team were bots or something. Would be cool to get bot support back! :D

Probably Smartglass. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/smartglass

I don't know all its capabilities or how they differ between the machines but I saw it a few times during the show for launching artillery and stuff.

Does anyone know the difference between the deluxe version and the standard version? I am pre-ordering it but I'm confused as to what those extra few bucks will buy me
