DICE’s latest installment in the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 4, is getting an update to its user interface in preparation for the next title in the series, Battlefield 1. This update is meant to get people more acclimated to the new game’s design before its release.
It’s a completely redone “visual overhaul”, with some changes to “how you actually play with friends”. Certain updates to Squads strive to make “spawning on your buddies smoother.” There’s a new “recommendation engine” that can suggest maps and modes for players.
This new UI will also roll out with Battlefield 1 later this year, and DICE says the intention is to make the transition between the former to the latter titles in the series much simpler and faster than before — thus the reason for a more unified UI design.
For a better understanding of what it looks like, the PC image below of Battlefield 1 might help.
Battlefield 1 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 21.
