If there’s one thing that warms the heart of all gamers the world over it’s a developer supporting a game long after it’s initial release. If that warms the heart then what DICE are currently working on will absolutely set it ablaze.
There is a new Battlefield user interface currently in it’s early BETA stages that aims to make the experience of playing any current gen Battlefield game, whether it be Battlefield 4, Hardline or the upcoming Battlefield 1, an all around smoother one.
To learn more read the full announcement below:
We’re always looking for new ways to improve your Battlefield experience. While we’re currently hard at work creating Battlefield 1, we still want to improve the experience for past Battlefield games – changes that will help unite Battlefield players regardless of whether they’re playing Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, or Battlefield 1 in October. That’s why we’re happy to introduce something that will provide a more intuitive and centralized experience.
The new Battlefield user interface is designed to improve the experience of playing with friends and to bring relevant content to your attention.
Now, you’re able to create a Squad before you actually enter into a game. Being able to join up with your friends and join into a game together makes it a much smoother experience, and helps make sure you’re able to spawn on your buddies as soon as you’re in the game.
There are other changes as well that you’ll want to see for yourself, like a recommendation engine to suggest maps, modes, and more, giving you a more relevant and fine-tuned experience that quickly gets you to the things you want to do.
This new UI is currently rolling out in beta form in Battlefield 4 for a small audience, and we’ll have more information on additional testing opportunities in the coming months. This will also be released with Battlefield 1 (and Battlefield Hardline soon after 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.
Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more updates as we approach the release of Battlefield 1 on October 21!
These changes, although not specified, seem like they’re going to bring about wholesale changes in terms of the way players interact with numerous different Battlefield titles.
The best part of this announcement surely has to be the confirmation that you can squad up with friends before finding a game! Would you agree with that? Or is there something else in the new user interface that you think will be a big plus to the series? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments!
