New Battlefield 4 patch for PC released
Good news today: without any warning or announcement, DICE has rolled out a brand new Battlefield 4 patch for PC gamers, which fixes more of the crashing bugs, in addition to other tweaks. Furthermore, a new server patch has been released as well, which fixes some common server crashes.
The new Battlefield 4 patch weighs in at over 880 MB, and is now available via Origin. The new server patch, R15, mainly fixes a server crash bug, and makes the client patch compatible with game servers. Here’s the full PC client 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.
The patch also fixed a “frame desync” issue, where players would get shot even if they were behind cover. It’s been rumored that the previous BF4 patch was actually causing more crashes for players, and hopefully this patch fixes that.
