Battlescreen is powered through the web, which plays into next-gen and PCs over the current generation. Engadget spoke with Battlelog assistant producer Jesper Nielsen, who confirmed its web-powered capabilities.
"Battlelog is powered by the web, and that has a lot of implications," Nielsen said. "There are a lot of different things you can do, things you can do faster, rather than building stuff in native code."
Battlelog's features were detailed last month; the function adds a second screen that players can use via tablet, smartphone or website. Through that screen, users can track stats, access a dynamic mini-map during matches and more.
