Battlegrounds Updates


With the introduction of Battlegrounds Parties on September 8, players will be able to queue up for Battlegrounds matches with more than one other player! Battlegrounds Parties will allow groups of players to queue Battlegrounds together, and it supports a full lobby for private games! you can group queue with up to 4 people for a ranked battlegrounds game now or queue with 5 to 8 people for a private game 

Here’s how it works:

  • Up to 4 players will be able to queue for a normal ranked Battlegrounds match together.
  • Once the group lobby exceeds 4 players, the game type will automatically switch to a private Battlegrounds match for 5-8 players.

Climb in rating with a handful of friends or invite the whole family to determine, once and for all, who is the true Battlegrounds pro of the bunch!
