Hungry for more details about Battlefield 3 ? DICE revealed a few details about Battlelog, an upcoming free social-networking site that will roll out in conjunction with BF3 on October 25.

While there's no shortage of statistical sites for Battlefield games, the Battlelog service aims to be different with an infusion of social features. In an official blog update posted today, DICE describes Battlelog as a service where "players will be able to build a network of friends, communicate with other gamers, and compare their Battlefield stats with friends and foes alike."

The main area of Battlelog will be Battlefeed and it will be similar to a Facebook feed. It's a real-time area that displays your friends' activities, such as ranking up, unlocking guns, or awards achieved. For example, instead of pressing "Like," you would press "Hooah!" under a status update. Comments can be left on any action posted in the feed. DICE also mentions in the blog post that the service will offer a detailed stat-tracking system that features a "soldier progression section, bringing full stats tracking for every shot fired and every action performed in your Battlefield career."

A teaser screenshot reveals that the stats site will look very clean, and detail factors such as rank, accuracy, K/D ratio, time played, score per minute, top weapons, multiplayer scores, latest awards, and much more. It's assumed the service will be as detailed as the unofficial Battlefield Stats Web site.

As a potential BF3 player, will you use Battlelog often? What would interest you the most about the service? Perhaps it will be a place I can finally vent about people cheating in multiplayer mode.
