Many online first person shooter games such as Call of Duty, Halo, and others have features that allow players to party up with their friends before going into a match. Currently, Battlefield 4 does not have that ability, so players have had trouble sticking with their friends in a lobby.
The developers of DICE announced today that the ‘Platoons’ Battlelog feature will be available soon, which will help friends join and stick in groups easier.
The developers confirmed “details to be announced very soon”, and also intends to run a closed beta test of Platoons to see how well it will function. DICE states:
“We want to give early access to a smaller group of players to test certain parts of the system before a full rollout and get some even earlier feedback,”
You can be a part of this beta test by clicking on the link here, which should take you to the Battlefield 4 forums where you can display your interest in the game. For a greater chance of acceptance they have suggested:
“If you can list your own, existing Platoon with all its members, you will have an even bigger chance of getting on the early access list,”
DICE released new patches for Battlefield 4 on the PS3 and PS4 today, to fix issues concerning spawning, audio, physics, and others.
