Introducing a New Way to Play Battlefield, Starting with Battlefield 4

1 month ago 86

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!

Technology hurtled forward during World War I, and when you load up Battlefield™ 1 on October 21 (or October 18 if you pre-order the Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition) you’ll get to experience it for yourself. From the first tanks to beautiful and deadly airplanes, Battlefield 1 will allow you to pilot the vehicles that revolutionized modern war.

Want to know more about them? We put together a Vehicles page on Battlefield.com that talks more about the game’s vehicles, complete with a Q&A involving YouTuber/Battlefield GameChanger PonyLion_HD and myself (Senior Designer Patrick O’Shaughnessy). There’s also a list of reasons to get excited to experience the vehicles found at the dawn of all-out war.

There’s a ton of new stuff to see in that trailer – including a better look at Behemoths, some of the largest vehicles in Battlefield history. You’ll find a whole lot of new info on these (and a lot more) on Battlefield.com, too.

We’re really excited for you to try Battlefield 1, and you won’t need to wait for the October 21 release date to go hands-on. There’s an Open Beta coming up (which you can get into a little earlier if you sign up for Battlefield Insider), and Play First trials for EA Access and Origin Access members. Plus, if you pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, you’ll be able to start playing on October 18, three days before the release date.
