Three years later, Battlefield gets a proper UI on console

battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is out of early access on Xbox One and PS4, you guys. I haven’t actually even played it since three weeks or so after it launched, because the server browser and matchmaking and, basically, everything else were such an unmitigated catastrophe, but hey, maybe I’ll get back into it. I mean, I probably won’t because I don’t even know where the disc is now, but I could if I wanted to and I knew where the disc was, and that’s what matters.

“A new Battlefield user interface is being introduced that will provide a more intuitive and centralized experience for Battlefield games – starting with Battlefield 4 on consoles,” DICE community manager Dan Mitre has announced on the game’s blog.


“Besides being a total visual overhaul, there are a number of changes to how you actually play with friends. There are some updates to Squads that should make spawning on your buddies a much smoother experience. There are other changes as well, many of which you’ll notice as you poke around. A big one is the inclusion of a recommendation engine that suggest maps, modes, and more.”

But, for real, does anybody actually even play Battlefield 4 anymore? Tell us in the comments so we can point and laugh at you. I still play Destiny so I’m totally allowed to make that joke.

Rage 2’s new trailer is a compilation of campy chaos and I love it
