New Battlefield 4 patch brings lag issues: report
DICE has been updating Battlefield 4 extensively lately, with several PC and console patches released in December. Each of the last two weeks has seen a Battlefield 4 patch released on the PC, fixing numerous performance and stability issues.
However, according to reports from gamers and Battlefield 4 server owners, the latest patch might have brought some problems with it as well.
The latest PC patch, released on December 20, has fixed some of the most common crashes on the PC, but it has apparently resulted in lag and lag spikes when playing. It’s unknown if this is the issue with the client patch or the latest server patch as well.
DICE has released over a dozen Battlefield 4 server patches since launch, and we’ve experienced a similar situation back in November, where a new server patch caused problems for players.
Reports from the official forums and on the Internet reveal a spike in reports about lag in the game, which seems to be occurring randomly, regardless of what server players are on. Some players have also reported of massive FPS drops on 64-player servers since the latest update.
While Battlefield 4 is still facing technical problems, there’s no denying that the game is much better now than it was back at launch. DICE is working on a new round of patches which should be released shortly after January 1st.
