“Connecting and playing with your friends has always been a central aspect of the Battlefield multiplayer experience. 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,” wrote the developer via Battlefield blog.
The Squad Join Beta allows players to set up squads of up to five players before joining a multiplayer server, keeping you and your team together during multiple rounds.
This feature is available on the game’s maps in Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Rush, and Domination game modes.
Squad Join Beta is currently available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 users, with the next version of the feature scheduled to be released with Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth this summer.
