Battlefield 5 Beta Patch Adds Spectator Mode

Among a bunch of other fixes, obviously.

Battlefield 5

EA and DICE have released a new update for the Battlefield 5 open beta, and it should address a few of the complaints raised by players who have access to it right now (it’s still in the early access phase). The squad joining issue, which prevented squads from joining a match together, has now been fixed- which means, obviously, that now you’ll be able to do exactly that.

A Spectator Mode has also been added to the game, so now you can, well, spectate. Matchmaking issues that were leading to lopsided matches have also been addressed by DICE, so that you will have to actually quit and rejoin a game at the end to be able to join the other side. On the whole, it seems like a very effective update; if DICE responds to player feedback like this (which they have been doing) leading to the game’s delayed launch in November, they should be able to release something the community largely likes when it launches.

You can see the full, official patch notes below (as provided by DICE). Battlefield 5 launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 20, 2018.

  • Fixed Squad Join issue, allowing Squads join a match together.
  • Activated Spectator mode.
  • Addressed lop-sided team balance issues. Note: With this update, at the end of the match you will not be switched to the opposite side. You will have to quit and rejoin to potentially play as the other army. (We will have a permanent solution to this issue with the full launch of Battlefield V that will work as designed.)
