New Battlefield 4 patch causing sound issues: reports
DICE released a massive Battlefield 4 patch yesterday on all platforms, which mostly dealt with fixing bugs and improving performance. However, some players are reporting that the patch has brought with it some new problems.
According to reports on the official Battlelog forums, Twitter, and even in comments here on BF4Central, the latest patch is causing sound issues across all platforms.
Players are experiencing loss of all sounds in the game except the end of round tune that is looped every five minutes in the background. The sound problem appears to be happening on both Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Some PC players are reporting the same problem though, adding that the game still crashes to desktop, even more than with last patch.
It should be noted that not all players are reporting these problems. Some, especially those on PC, say that Battlefield 4 runs better and with no issues at all.
However, it appears that the sound issue is a serious one, especially on consoles. Last Battlefield 4 patch added some bugs as well, especially on the netcode side. Hopefully DICE figures out what went wrong and rolls out a quick patch to fix the sound glitches.
Sound problems are nothing new to Battlefield 4 — the game shipped with looped and broken sound on several maps, most prominently on Lancang Dam, where the sound would loop and cut out at times. This bug was later fixed in an update.
