Battlefield 4 Squads in beta testing – rumour

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 31 March 2014 22:44 GMT

Battlefield 4 may soon see the return of the popular Squads grouping option on consoles, with one player posting images apparently showing a test already underway.


VGLeaks gathered a collection of the off-screen photos from Reddit, showing the German language multiplayer menu on PS3 in Battlefield 4.

A new menu item, Squad Access, is shown, marked as a beta feature.

Squads were introduced in Battlefield 3 and allow small groups of friends to group up so that they end up in the same teams during matchmaking.

DICE has been re-introducing multiplayer features like Platoons that didn’t make the jump between Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4, so this development seems quite likely to be true. However, as with any screenshots posted randomly on the Internet, it’s best to wait official word before getting too excited.
