Electronic Arts’ head of mobile development Frank Gibeau shared details of a new “high-end” Battlefield game for mobile devices in an interview with The New York Times.


A mobile version of Battlefield 4 will be launching along side the PC and console version of the game when its released on October 29, according to EA’s head of mobile development Frank Gibeau.

Gibeau said that the mobile version will be “high-end” and will run on DICE’s Frostbite Go engine.

“We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high-performance. It’s our bet that we can successfully pull that off. But we’re embarking on something no one has ever done before–to get these games to inter-operate between platforms,” Gibeau said in an interview with The New York Times.  “Will it work? It already has in some cases. Will it work for all franchises? Not all franchises will make the transition. Battlefield might be a little harder.”

Gibeau also said that Battlefield 4 will come with a Commander Mode, will is designed for tablets and will be available once the game launches. This mode allows users to assume the role of a commander, and oversee their teams’ efforts in a real-time setting.
