The Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Battlefield 4 will include support for 64-player multiplayer and reintroduce Battlefield 2's fan-favourite Commander Mode, DICE has confirmed.

Previous console versions of Battlefield were limited to 32 players. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it's assumed, will still be limited to 32 players, but will also include Commander Mode.

Commander Mode, which was dropped for Battlefield 3, lets a single player issue commands to their team and initiate remote military support, including artillery fire. Commanders can even use an iPad or Android tablet to issue commands.

Battlefield 4 goes on sale this October with next-generation versions to follow at each console's launch.
