‘Battlefield 4’ Xbox 360 Update Now Available

Today rounds out the last of the promised January updates, as the patch for the 360 version of Battlefield 4 is now live.

Over the course of this week, DICE and EA have been pushing out updates for Battlefield 4 across all platforms in an effort to fix any lingering engine errors and crashes, along with balance changes to vehicles and weapons. Patch-releases for the Xbox 360 version of BF4 have fallen behind those of the other platforms, but as of this morning, a new update is available; the following is a list of changes and fixes that the new update addresses, courtesy of Battlelog:

-Various fixes for improving general stability
-Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done

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

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

-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 he was just hurt)

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

-Fixed a bug where the 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

-China Rising: Fixed animation glitch for motorbike passengers occurring when aiming

-Fix for first and third person soldier animations being out of sync while doing transition changes. This could potentially make the player get hit while in cover behind a wall or other obstacle

-Fix for map and minimap flickering on Rogue Transmission and Operation Locker

With the last of the current series of updates now available, there is a possibility that DICE begin working on Battlefield 4 DLC again; “China Rising” and the Xbox One-exclusive “Second Assault” are currently available, while future expansions are on a temporary hold until Battlefield 4 is once again “playable” on all platforms.
