PC players have been able to rent Battlefield 4 servers, and it looks like console players will be able to follow suit as well.

When asked about the possibility of seeing server rentals on the PS4, an EA rep responded, "Indeed, it is coming. I'm afraid we don't have any information on this quite yet, but it is coming soon! Keep your eyes peeled on the Control Room and Battlefield blog, as those are most likely where you'll see it announced first."

Pricing for rentals on PC varies, but 10-player support typically runs about $13 a month, with a $90 monthly fee supporting 70 players. Console players were supposed to be able to rent servers on day one, but that clearly changed between our talk with the game's producer and its launch. Similar functionality was available on consoles for Battlefield 3.

Our Take
Battlefield 4 didn't have the smoothest launch, and its post-launch support has been problematic as well. Are server rentals the answer? We'll see. One thing's inevitable: People aren't going to be pleased if they're asked to pay an unreasonable amount of money for the privilege of playing something that barely works. Rental servers can be great for players who want them, so long as they don't decrease options for players that want to continue on public servers.

I don't think SNR need a server, There's plenty of empty server's that we don't need to pay for.

Yup, nothing to see here, at least we might see some better map rotations now though....along with the obligatory 500% ticket count crap

Surprised its took this long, I'd rather they didn't though

What annoyed me was I just couldn't find official servers on bf3 once the rentals were released
They were loads that claimed to be official dice until you looked a bit closer to find it wasn't
