Developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts have announced an upgraded Spectator mode for its upcoming World War 1 shooter Battlefield 1 for the PC, Xbox One. It will allow players to quickly create their own cinematic movies from gameplay footage.
Spectator mode made its debut in Battlefield 4 and was also included in Battlefield Hardline. Both allowed players to check out matches without actually participating. For Battlefield 1, DICE decided to add some cinematic editing features in Spectator mode that have previously only been available for PC owners, via unofficial third-party mod tools. Xbox Wire (opens in new tab) states:
Among those tools will be ways to adjust depth of field settings such as camera blur and focus distance. Filters will also be able to be put into Battlefield 1 cinematics, including the popular Sepia tone. You can see the editing tools in action in the video above. Battlefield 1 is due for release on October 21 for the standard edition, with people who buy the Early Enlister edition getting access to the game on October 18.

Wish those advanced recording tools and an ingame server browser/game menu was available for BF4
This will probably make accurate benchmarking even better, as you can replay the same scene over and over on different PC hardware and see how they each perform.
