“Squad Join Beta” Introduced to Battlefield 4

“Squad Join Beta” Introduced to Battlefield 4

On Friday, May 2, Battlefield 4 developer DICE revealed that it will be introducing a new “Squad Join” feature to the game in the form of a Beta, which will allow you to team up with up to four other players in a party-like fashion before joining a multiplayer server.

Connecting and playing with your friends has always been a central aspect of the Battlefield multiplayer experience, ” writes DICE’s SlyOkapi. To help make this easier, we are now releasing Squad Join Beta for Battlefield 4 . This is something we know our fans have been asking for–and something we wish we could have provided at launch–so we are now happy to present the first iteration of Squad Join.

With Squad Join, you and up to four other players can team up as a squad and enter a game together as a squad, instead of finding/forming one after you join said game. Once a round finishes, your squad will still be bound together as you progress into the next round.

As this is the first iteration of the feature, DICE will continue to tweak and add additional things to Squad Join Beta based on player feedback, and it is aiming to release the next version of the feature with Battlefield 4’s upcoming DLC “ Dragon’s Teeth ”, which is slated to release this summer. The Squad Join Beta feature will be available across PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Squad Join Beta is currently only available in the Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Rush and Domination gamemodes. More maps and gamemodes will be compatible with later iterations.

DICE has finally resolved Battlefield 4’s rubber banding issues as of Friday, April 25. What’s more, Battlefield 4’s Platoons feature–which was made available for Early Access back in January, and it was later released in March–recently received an improvement which allowed you to see what servers your Platoon members are playing on.

Battlefield 4’s Rent-A-Server feature, though initially released with some difficulties , is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but some problems still remain. A fact sheet of the game was also released on Wednesday, March 6, which details a comprehensive overview of what the game is. Check our Joshua Bruce’s review of Battlefield 4 on Xbox One here .
