The feature will let players coordinate competitive multiplayer sessions by selecting the time, server, game settings, and roster.

Players must be actively renting a dedicated server in order to coordinate matches, which can be done for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 through Battlelog.

Before the match begins, players will be able to engage in a warm-up phase where no kills or points are counted. After the match, players can review the number of rounds played, maps used, etc. on Battlelog.

EA has not yet announced a release date for the "Matches" feature.
