Battlefield developer DICE has announced that it's working on a revamped UI for all of its Battlefields that will see a unified interface shared between Battlefield 4, Battlefield: Hardline, and the upcoming Battlefield 1. What will it entail? Well, the ability to group up with friends outside of a match and seamlessly switch between games as a squad. Or, lone wolf. In other words, better integration for the already excellent Battlelog system.
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.
Currently in a limited beta run in Battlefield 4 the new UI system is expected to be ready in time for Battlefield 1's launch in October.
