With the worldwide release of Battlefield 1 just around the corner, Electronic Arts have outlined upcoming plans for the game's companion app.

The Battlefield Companion app will replace the existing Battlelog service, which was initially rolled out alongside Battlefield 3 in 2011. While Battlelog never saw an official release on the Windows Store, Battlefield Companion will debut on October 18 for Windows 10 Mobile.

A major overhaul to the Battlelog Mobile App is just around the corner. Launching October 18 for Android, iOS, and Windows 10 Mobile, the new Battlefield Companion is a great way to stay in touch with Battlefield™ 1 and Battlefield 4 on the go.

Jumping into the Battlefield Companion you'll notice its new refreshed look, improved navigation, and support for Battlefield 1. The Battlefield Companion will enable you to track Battlefield progress, customize your loadout, connect with friends, and more.

In recent years Battlelog has been developed alongside new Battlefield titles, with direct integration into both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. Battlefield 1 is set to ditch the service for new features built directly into the game itself.

Battlefield Companion will be available on October 18, alongside the release of Battlefield 1's Early Enlister Deluxe Edition. While the app isn't currently available, we'll make sure to update this post when it arrives on the Windows Store!
