The ability to organise a squad of players and join a game together has long since been needed in Battlefield 4. It’s predecessor has such a feature and, although, not perfect was something.
In a response to a query on Facebook last year DICE stated that in Battlefield 4 they are ”not offering the old squad join feature because we didn’t feel that the feature in Battlefield 3 was on par with the quality that we wanted to offer our players. We have no plans to add it in the future.” Of course “no plans to add it in the future” doesn’t mean no squad organisation at all, just simply not the version we saw in Battlefield 3.
But is a revised version now coming to Battlefield 4? Reddit user xSty86 has recently taken some screenshots of a new option that appears on his PS3 version of Battlefield 4. Here they are, with translations for each following…
Squad Access (Beta)
