Next-Gen ‘Battlefield 4’ Updates Now Available

The PC version already received a patch earlier this week, but now it’s the next-gen consoles’ turn; January’s Battlefield 4 update is now available for PS4 and Xbox One.

DICE and EA are continuing to roll out updates for all versions of Battlefield 4 this month, as promised by a previous Battlelog post. This week has featured back-to-back updates for the troubled shooter; the PC version received an update on Monday, the PS3 and PS4 updates went live yesterday, and the Xbox One patch was released this morning. The complete catalog of fixes, performance tweaks and balance changes are listed as follows, courtesy of Battlelog:

PS3 Update:

-Various fixes for improving general stability

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

-Fixed issue with player spawning under the map in Lancang Dam

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

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

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

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

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

-EU Players: Fixed bug where game wouldn’t start when when the console was running in any of these languages: Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Brazilian Portuguese

-Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0

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

Several weeks after Battlefield 4‘s troubled launch, EA announced that DICE was no longer working on other projects (i.e. Mirror’s Edge sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront) or future BF4 DLC until Battlefield 4 was up-to-standards; while a flurry of patches and updates have been administered, there’s still no word whether or not DICE’s “development-hold” has been lifted. 

The Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 4 is lagging slightly behind on updates; a patch is still scheduled for January, but no date or window has been announced.
