Battlefield 4 Server Rental Available on Xbox 360, Removed on Xbox One

Battlefield 4 server rentals are now available on Xbox 360, DICE has announced. But there’s a problem with the service on Xbox One.
The rental scheme allows players to set up their own private and public servers, while fiddling with a whole slew of customisation options.
24 hours costs £1.19, 7 days costs £5.49, 30 days costs £19.99 and 90 days will set you back £47.99. You can access the option through the Multiplayer menu of the game.
Developer DICE says that it intends to increase the number of available servers slowly, once it’s confident that everything is working as it should.
Related to this is the removal of Xbox One server rentals, which DICE puts down to some “rental time issues.”
"We have identified rental time issues with the Rent-a-Server Program release on Xbox One and have temporarily removed the feature as we investigate," the studio said.
"The servers which were already rented will still be available for play, but admins may not be able to access all the management features at this time.
"As soon as a fix is in place we will announce its availability."
Additionally, DICE has said that it has addressed the "Death Shield" issue. "We’d also like to inform you that with today’s server update, we are deploying a fix for the issue being referred to as “Death Shield,” where an invisible “shield” would appear around killed enemies, blocking weapons fire," said the studio.
"Thank you for being patient as we worked to get this resolved."
