Ever play Battlefield with a friend, but get put on opposite teams? Well say no more to this issue as EA is finally going to allow you create your squad before joining a server. DICE did this so you would, “[be] able to join up with your friends and join into a game together [making] it a much smoother experience, and [help] make sure you’re able to spawn on your buddies as soon as you’re in the game.” This change is a big one from DICE’s plan to increase “the experience of playing with friends and to bring relevant content to your attention.”
As of right now this is only in testing phase to a select few and more details on aditional testing opportunites will be released in furute months. The order that this will be released is first for Battlefield 4, then for Battlefield Hardline, and finally Battlefield 1. To make this user interface even better it seems that you will be able to easily move your squad in between the different games. Which is backed up from this statement by DICE that, “Once it’s rolled out for all three games, you’ll be able to easily swap between the games as long as you own them. Want to jump from St. Quentin Scar in Battlefield 1 to the skyscrapers of Shanghai in Battlefield 4? It’ll be easier than ever.”
This kind of information is very exciting to here, as I constantly try to play Battlefield 4 with my friends but keep getting put on opposite teams where most servers lock team switch.
