The Value Of Battlefield 4's Spectator Mode

Spectator mode is back for Battlefield 4, and the developers at DICE excitedly talk about it in the game's latest blog entry.

DICE developers Daniel Matros and Dennis Brannvall discuss the usefulness of spectator mode in Battlefield 4 in the game's latest official blog entry.

The duo go over the different cameras at your disposal, the UI, and the mode's tie to competitive e-sports.

Battlefield 4 hits the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 29; PlayStation 4 on November 12; and Xbox One on November 19.

For some footage of the game's beta, take a look at this recent video.

  • I really hope Esports takes off with BF4, since I am amazing at it and will be the best at everything.
  • Spectator modes are really nice to have. Ever since Halo 3 kind of ushered it in I have loved the ability to kick back and check out the action.
  • I'm glad Battlefield is adding some stuff on the side, like spectator mode. I'm all for intense competitive multiplayer, but sometimes I want to take a breather and explore the map or see how another person plays, and I'm glad I won't have to go beyond the game to watch videos, etc.

  • Now if only we could get this in our sports games.

  • I wonder how many servers will use it, wouldn't take much to abuse it, get a friend in and communicate via teamspeak. For competitive its great, but otherwise its only compromising.
  • This is a cool feature to have in place, I've been playing the beta & I gotta say it's awesome. PS4 day 1 shipping I'm out

  • Although I doubt Ill use the feature im sure some people will get their fair use out of it, as it can be really helpful. I have to say though while I am a big fan of battlefield and the first bad company got be into the series I am continuously disappointed with the lack of destructibility in the maps in BF3 and BF4. Sure bringing down a single skyscraper is cool and all but at the end of the day its 1 building and the only damage the building takes is to its pillars until it falls. This is why I cant wait for Bad company 3 because hopefully that make the game more destructible again especially with the power of the next gen consoles
  • Hmmm... I likey

  • Mod

    This seems like a pretty great feature!

  • So *** what? Spectator mode has been around for ages! Or are we making a big deal out of it because DICE have been too retarded to implement it since BF2?
  • The MP does look pretty sweet.  'Oh no, I'm getting shot.  I'll just jump out the window and parachute to a safe place.'  Totally awesome.

  • Sounds great, it'd be cool to see a particular player's tactics or abilities if they were being a bamf lol. Might help me improve my game :3

  • I don't get why this is so amazing. Sure, e-sports, but it's not a 'theatre' mode when you can relive played moments and hold onto the best.
