New Battlefield 4 patch for PC and consoles released
As expected, DICE has released a brand new Battlefield 4 patch on PC and consoles, fixing a number of issues, adding some weapon tweaks, and finally, PC gamers get the new AMD Mantle update. The patch is available on all platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Owners of newer AMD graphics cards should be able to get a much better performance from Battlefield 4 with this update, but the new patch also includes performance tweaks and improvements for all other PC players as well.
The new patch improves on multi-core CPU performance, and on GPU performance as well (both Nvidia and AMD). The patch also includes a few minor crash fixes (every Battlefield 4 patch seems to include some crash fixes).
As mentioned earlier, DICE has rolled out some of their weapon tweaks as well. DMRs, such as the RFB, M39, and MK11 Mod 0, now deal more damage and have a longer range. This remains the only gameplay tweak in the patch, but DICE are working on other vehicle and weapon tweaks for upcoming patches.
The new patch also reduces the “black screen” that appears when spawning, and fixes for the MAV and SOFLAM exploit.
The Battlefield 4 patch on PC weights in at 1.2 GB, and can be downloaded now. The console versions should be available to download as well, if not, they will be rolled out later today.
