Writing in a post on the Battlelog forum, Battlefield 4 producer Jesper Nielsen announced that the game’s developer is offering early access to its much requested Platoons system. The announcement also promises that EA DICE’s newly touted feature will be going live for the masses “very soon.”

The Platoons social feature, which was also utilised in Battlefield 3, allows players to join up with friends and accumulate stats as a team. DICE offered a smaller group of players early access to “test certain parts of the system before a full rollout and get some even earlier feedback.” It was possible to sign up for early access but he thread is was locked very quickly as it received “more than enough applies,” from eager players.
