While we just got a Battlefield 5 patch last week to fix some nagging issues, DICE is releasing yet another one this week! The Battlefield 5 upcoming update is set for tomorrow, and same as last week, it’ll include fixes and nothing more.
This Battlefield 5 upcoming update will “eliminate the most common cause of crashing across all platforms, alongside an additional and separate fix for Practice Range.” Again, want to reiterate that there will be no new content or balance changes included in this patch.
Battlefield 5 upcoming update patch notes:
- Eliminated the most common cause of crashing on all Platforms, across all game modes
- Separately fixed a different issue, addressing a hard crash in Practice Range when interacting with Planes
In addition to that, DICE has issued a note for PC players regarding the patch.
A Note Concerning PC Downloads for this Update
One thing that we observed during our internal testing was that the download speed dropped significantly once the update hit 95%. The update will otherwise download at your usual speeds until you reach 95%. We’re actively investigating this in case the issue is set to persist when we flip the switch tomorrow morning (it could just be a unique issue relating to our internal testing). In the event that you do encounter this, our best advice is to wait it out rather than attempting to restart the patching process as you won’t see it behave any differently a second time around.
The Update is estimated at around 800MB in size on PC, so this will only affect the last 40MB or thereabouts, which is likely to download at around 100kb/s irrespective of your internet speed, or the rate at which the rest of the update downloaded at. We’re going to work on this one through the rest of the day with our teams across EA to see if we can fix this, and will provide further updates should we learn anything new. Given what the update otherwise fixes, we ask for your patience on the slower download, rather than delay the update itself whilst we investigate that. Ultimately, the update will download and install correctly.
Once the patch is out tomorrow, we’ll let our readers know.
