Battlefield 4 players on PC already have the ability to rent servers for the multiplayer shooter, and soon console users will have the same access, developer DICE has confirmed.

Writing on Battlelog, an Electronic Arts representative said, "Indeed, it is coming. I'm afraid we don't have any information on this quite yet, but it is coming soon!" Details on console server rentals will be shared at a later date through Battlelog.

PC players can currently rent Battlefield 4 servers for a fee that varies depending on duration and provider. Similar server rental functionality was available for Battlefield 3 across PC and consoles.

Why pay for a Battlefield 4 server? As a server administrator, you can configure game rules like making your server private/public, determining which maps and modes are played, and more. You're also able to manage players on your server and can kick, ban, and mute them at will.
