Battlefield‘s user interface is in line for an upgrade, DICE has confirmed.
In a surprising announcement via the official Battlefield blog, the studio outlined plans to debut the feature via Battlefield 4 first “in the coming months,” before making the jump to both Battlefield 1 and Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline.
Designed to provided a more “intuitive and centralised experience” the revamped UI “is currently rolling out in beta form in Battlefield 4 for a small audience, and we’ll have more information on additional testing opportunities in the coming months. This will also be released with Battlefield 1 (and Battlefield Hardline soon after that). Once it’s rolled out for all three games, you’ll be able to easily swap between the games as long as you own them. Want to jump from St. Quentin Scar in Battlefield 1 to the skyscrapers of Shanghai in Battlefield 4? It’ll be easier than ever.”
Expect more information relating to DICE’s UI overhaul as we get it. Battlefield 1, meanwhile, marches onto PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 21.
