Battlefield 4 will feature Commander Mode [Update: First multiplayer footage]

Battlefield 4's multiplayer will feature a Commander Mode, EA has announced at E3, similar to the one seen back in Battlefield 2142. The mode will allow players to send commands out or deliver intel or artillery fire to five-man squads from tablets and other devices across Battlelog, in maps that will support up to 64 players at a time.

EA showed off a demo of the mode on a map called the Siege of Shanghai map, and will have gameplay streaming live from the show on all this week.
