‘Battlefield 4’ PC Patch Now Live

Last week’s promised January update is now available for the PC version of Battlefield 4, with console patches soon to follow.

Earlier today, DICE and EA released a new patch for the PC version of Battlefield 4; the new update addresses a plethora of concerning bugs and glitches, along with a new balance-update for jets:

-Various fixes for improving general stability

-Fixed a memory leak issue occurring after level shutdowns, which could result in a out-of-memory crash in longer play sessions

-Additional fix for the “sound loop” deadlock when running High/Ultra graphics settings

-Added a warning for using Legacy AMD drivers that were out of date

-Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done

-Fixed a bug where players’ rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated

-Fix for Asian users unable to start Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 on Windows 8.1

-Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before

-Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)

-Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members

-Fixed a bug where a M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera

-Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons.

-Stealth Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other. F35 & J-20 are slightly more agile, Su-50 is less agile.

-Attack Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other, and all 3 are now slightly less agile than earlier

-Fixed camera glitch when switching weapons while moving in crouch

-Fixed an occasional bug where players could experience intermittent engine sound dropouts when driving wheeled IFVs

-Fix for player spawning under the map when deploying on Lancang Dam

-Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rogue Transmission and Operation Locker

Battlefield 4 was one of 2013’s most anticipated military-FPS titles of the year; sadly, all versions of the chaotic shooter have been plagued with problems– some of which have been “game-breaking”- since launch. Patches for the console versions are planned for release this month, though no details have been given towards what they may address.
