Battlefield 4 patch

DICE has just announced that they are working on a new Battlefield 4 patch which should be released late January or early February, which puts the release date likely sometime during next week.

According to a post on Battlelog, the new Battlefield 4 patch will include the usual bundle of fixes and stability improvements, while it appears that any serious gameplay tweaks have been pushed to a later date. DICE said that they will release a specific list of changes once the patch goes live.

The developer is now also seeking feedback for gameplay changes, where players can give their feedback to certain changes by voting here.

In the upcoming weeks, Battlefield 4 will get several gameplay tweaks, which will affect DMRs, mobile AAs, and more. DICE says that gameplay tweaks will be added in patches in February. The upcoming Battlefield 4 patch next week will focus mostly on bug fixing and stability improvements.

The last two Battlefield 4 updates did not fare well on the PC and other platforms, as they both brought with them new bugs and issues, mostly related to the netcode. Hopefully the patch next week will be more polished.

Sharing is caring!

    Next patch will bring another bug where players will be wearing bikinis in the kill cam. You can bet on it.

      The bet should be on whether they are still alive with 0 health or -1 health. I am betting on the -1 health since this would be in line with their progression for F-Tarded miscues.

    I have lag sometimes but it’s not that bad for me and I play on ps3 and pc. I see other people saying they have massive lag issuse and they crash every time they play. I have never crashed and I don’t think it’s just me. I think it’s other people ethier trying to push their crappy pcs to their limits or they just like to hate on DICE.

        a i5 2500k and 7970 isn’t high end, 3 years ago it was barely above average. i7 4770k @ 4.8 – 24Gb ram – 2 GTX 780 Tis – 30 inch 2560 x 1600 display – 512 GB SSD is high end and that would be my setup.

    I have a dumb punkbuster bug where I get kicked on every second round (for zero minutes) for a ‘restricted driver’. If I rejoin then it doesn’t have an issue.

    The additional problem is the cannot join server bug which makes this extra frustrating. There is nothing on my system but standard drivers (all WHQL). This only started happening after the last server patch.

    A quick look at the forum on battlelog makes it clear that this is a pretty wide spread issue as well.

      i get this issue too!

      this is the message that i get….

      Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player ‘FLAMINGFIREW0LF’ (for 0 minutes) … RESTRICTION: Disallowed Program/Driver [130827]

      i googled it and i just found out that it is a random glitch that gets you kicked because you are using a program that it does not like where in my case it is TS 3.0 that it does not like and so i just stay off it and i’m all good.

    Too many snipers on every server I play on now makes it unplayable to me. Waiting for a better game like GTA 5 or The Division for PC.

      i Know what you mean. EA should limit how many snipers can play in game. It is absurd to spawn then die by these sniping fags constantly. I die more from these assholes more then i die from assault class players!? And the big maps shiiiittt turns into a reality show gamers top snipers. WTF stop sniping!!!!!!!

    they should fix the damn 0 health glitch. That’s been happening a lot lately. That’s all I really care about.

    I’ll be happy with a patch that means I can play for a full hour without the game crashing to desktop and taking DirectX with it, requiring a reboot.

    Just finished a game. Unloaded three shotgun blasts at about 10ft range into a guys back and head, he then turns and 1 shots me with a pea shooter pistol. Yay Dice.

    I hardly ever even play anymore. Im tired of shooting people and watching them stay up, the worse the game plays the less others team play. Its become basically a camp/hack fiasco.

    I honestly believe more players are hacking cause the game is such a POS they really dont care if they get booted. I feel that way myself but I would never give anyone my money to buy a hack for a silly computer game.

    EA is a dishonest company and they totally screwed the pooch on the BF series.

    I then created a Voodoo Doll of EA and viciously stabbed it with my steak knife.

    Put the previous patch back, that worked better than this shite

      No, we must move forward not back. Look for the -1 health kill video, soon to be at your local PC screen. No Passes for this event. Everybody pays to be EPHED by EA

    Look man, everything that’s being written here has been already fixed. Look at at every single posting by Dice and EA regarding the patch notes. Its all been fixed. I believe them because they say its so. If you will just keep reading those words over and over you too will come to believe. There is no mind conditioning going on here, EA/DICE is wonderful, we are the screwed up ones.

    Do you believe me? ;<)

    After the patch,my save game was working fine.So much so that I was finally able to finish the campaign.I have unlocked all but seven cheevos relating to the endings and scoring for the last two levels.I was planning on playing through restarting at the last 2 levels.Now suddenly my save is gone again.I don’t want to have to start from the beginning when I could have just restarted by chapter select.I have earned what I needed to that point,now I am asking you guys to find my save and cloud it back up or send me info on how to get a refund for my day one purchase and premium purchase.The way that EA closes down servors and not fix unlockable cheevos like on NFS:Carbon’s Urban Battle achievement.Nevermind…I knew you guys were a terrible company and I stayed buying your quality bullcrap like a sucker for love.I’m offically done.I will eat this loss.
