EA have announced that that Battlefield will be getting a unified user interface on next gen consoles in the hope of providing a “more intuitive and centralized experience” for players.
EA announced the plans on the Battlefield website and have started a beta, which will be extending in the coming months. This will mean players will be able to create squads of friends from the UI before joining a match, and then choose any BF game to jump into and swap between. The UI will support BF4 initially and will be compatible with BF1 when it releases later this year. Hardline will be supported but a little later. EA have said the UI will give suggestions for maps and modes that your squad might like to play, the only downfall being having to swap discs between the Battlefield games unless you own digital copies.
This seems like an interesting leap in the way online multiplayer will work for this type of game. Are you excited about the prospect of a unified interface or do you think it will be a pain? Let us know in the comments section below!
