Fixed? Battlefield 4 PC Patch Addresses Crashes, Stability
For the first time in weeks, I’m planning to play Battlefield 4 today.
That’s because this morning DICE released a much-needed Battlefield 4 PC patch that fixes one of the biggest problems causing the shooter to habitually crash. At least DICE says the problems have been resolved thanks to both a server and game update. After being able to play one, two consecutive matches at most before crashing, I have my doubts. Fingers crossed.
Here’s the full list of PC patch notes:
-Fixed one of the most frequently occurring client crashes
-Fixed broken collision on containers with open doors. The bug previously made grenades bounce back even though the doors were open.
-Fixed a bug in Defuse mode where defenders could win the round by killing all the attackers without disarming the bomb, if the bomb was disarmed in the previous round.
-Miscellaneous stability fixes further reducing the number of client crashes
-Fixed side gunner jitter when aiming in attack boats & transport helicopters
-Fixed some instances of frame rate drops when shooting at large Levolution objects after they have been destroyed (like the radar dish on Rogue Transmission)
-Fixed broken aiming for passengers on the China Rising dirt bike
-Fixed a bug where the sound when capturing a flag was not playing correctly
-Removed a bug that would double save during MP round transition and SP level transition. This fix will reduce the occurrence of corrupted save files.
For those of you still waiting on the Xbox One Battlefield 4 patch — which has been desperately needed since Battlefield 4′s November 22nd train wreck of a launch on Microsoft’s new console — there is no update. DICE originally said it hoped to get the update out sometime last week, but frustrated players are still waiting.
