PlayStation 4 users enjoying Battlefield 4 are in for a bit of an update today.

The patch, which may already be live for a number of users as of this writing, intends to address stability issues affecting a “large amount” of crashes on the PlayStation 4 and will finally fix those pesky audio and EMP bugs.

If you’re not seeing the patch just yet, try rebooting your PlayStation 4. You might have been playing as it went live.

Developer “Trydling” adds in his recent Battlelog update that DICE is “…already working on the next update based on your feedback.” Check out the December 11 patch notes below:

Dec 11 Battlefield 4 PlayStation 4 Game Update Notes

  • General stability fixes that should remove a large amount of the client crashes we are currently seeing on the PS4
  • Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds
  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
  • Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file by doing miscellaneous changes to the save file system. These include removing the save file saving again when quitting multiplayer
  • Fixed multiple crashes that could occur when bringing up the in-game Battlelog during round transition
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the BattleScreen
  • Fixed a random crash related to destroying vehicles
  • Fixed minor destruction issues in the terrain
