Xbox players, we will be deploying a patch at 3AM PST / 12PM CET to allow you to enjoy Squad mode in all the ways possible.
You will now be able to play Squad mode as a 1, 2, or 3-man squad without having to matchmake with other players.

Players won’t be forced to into matchmaking to join squads. Now players will be able to join in different sized squads on their own time. The Xbox version of the game is still in “Game Preview” at this point. The PC version was just finally taken out of beta. It will be some time before this version is 100 percent complete.
The game has exploded in popularity this past year on PC and it was finally released on Xbox One for the price of $29.99. Now if you go to the store looking for a disk copy you will actually just find a box with a code inside.
