As pleasant as Battlefield 4 may be, it's also a mite wonky--enough so that developer DICE paused work on its DLC until the FPS is in better shape. The PC version got a little TLC earlier this week, and now it's the PS4's turn. A new patch today brings plenty of crash fixes, and a few other tweaks.
The patch is rolling out today, and you may need to restart the game to have it install. Here's the changelog of everything it brings:
- General stability fixes that should remove a large amount of the client crashes we are currently seeing on the PS4
- Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds
- Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
- Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file by doing miscellaneous changes to the save file system. These include removing the save file saving again when quitting multiplayer
- Fixed multiple crashes that could occur when bringing up the in-game Battlelog during round transition
- Fixed a crash that could occur when using the BattleScreen
- Fixed a random crash related to destroying vehicles
- Fixed minor destruction issues in the terrain
"We are already working on the next update based on your feedback," DICE added.
