New Battlefield 4 patch coming in January
DICE is slowly getting back into gear in the new year, and they’re hard at work on a new Battlefield 4 patch for PC and other platforms.
According to a recent status update from the new BF4 control center, the new Battlefield 4 patch is expected to be released later this month.
According to the post, the number one priority (still) is to resolve technical issues with the game, such as crashes, lag, and of course, the netcode.
The last Battlefield 4 patch was released back on December 20 on the PC — some three weeks ago. While that patch did fix several things, it also appears to have brought with it some netcode problems.
The last server update (R17) was three weeks ago, and DICE is planning a server update as well for this month. In addition to that, the game will get an update that supports the new AMD Mantle technology, which can improve performance up to 45% while running on the same graphics hardware.
DICE didn’t reveal any specific details as to what the new patch includes, only that the umber one priority is stabilization.
A few days ago, Battlefield 4 gameplay designer Alan Kertz revealed a list of Battlefield 4 gameplay tweaks they are looking into.
