DICE has added a new feature to Battlefield 4 called Squad Join. Now players will be able to stay in the same squad as their friends and in the same team until you don’t leave the squad yourself.
Squad Join is one of the most highly requested features in the Battlefield community since the game came out and everyone is relieved that DICE finally brought it into the game. But Squad Join has its limits, you can only have a certain number of friends in your Squad and you can not exceed the limit. As far as I know, the maximum number of players you can have in your squad is 5 so if you have more then five people in total who want to play, then you will be unable to play in the same squad and might even be split up during the pre-game lobby since you’re not in the same squad.
The Squad Join feature is not in full effect and is only in its Beta stage and you can try it out in Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Rush and Domination. We don’t know how long the Beta of Squad Join will last. The Squad Join feature is available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
