Lots of new updates for Battlefield 4 fans concerned with a few of the game’s launch issues.
According to a recent Battlelog forum update, developers DICE are hard at work on client patches for the all three versions of the game.
“We are testing and finalizing upcoming client patches for PS3 and X360. We will be able to give you an ETA on these at a later date,” writes the DICE team. “The PC client patch for Battlefield 4 will go live in the near future and fixes a number of different issues you have helped us to identify, including a number of the most common crashes and freezes. We will get back to you with a full fix list and a specific date for this update soon.”
In preparation for these upcoming client patches, some maintenance downtime across all platforms is planned for tomorrow, November 13 beginning at 9am UTC/1am PST and lasting 2 to 3 hours.
During the maintenance, the latest server update will be applied to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, so console users can expect the following fixes once everything is back online:
- Temporarily disabled the ”Indirect Fire” and ”Perimeter Defense” Field Upgrades on PS3 as they caused the game to crash when spawning. This is a temporary workaround while we work to solve the issue altogether.
- Fixed a number of dog tags that were showing up as blank in-game.
- Lowered the damage caused by Mobile AA Active Radar missiles to aircraft. The previous damage was incorrectly set too high.
- Improved server crash reporting and performance tracking on all platforms. This should further help us identify and fix server crashes going forward.
We’ll have client patch notes as soon as they are up, so be sure to keep your sights on MP1st.
