An incoming PC update for Battlefield 4 is in the works that DICE developer “Vincent0K”, as his name goes on the Battlelog, has revealed to address a number of bugs that the community has weighed in on.
The “next PC update is in the works, and we are tracking to fix a few items you have given us feedback on,” he writes in a recent Battlelog forum thread.
“Specifically, we are looking at the Commander EMP blur effect that you have noticed, as well as the intermittent sound bug that happens most frequently on the Golmud Railway map.”
“While we don’t have a solid date for this patch just yet, we just wanted to let you know some of the things we’re looking at right now (besides increasing stability overall.)”
“Finally, YouTuber JackFrags sent us a great video where he demonstrates the so-called ”1 shot kill bug”, where it looks like weapons sometimes deal too much damage (although the real issue might be more complex.) We are reproducing this bug and working to fix it as soon as possible.”
If you’ve seen JackFrags latest video, which you can view through the link above, you’ll be happy to know it’s getting looked into sooner rather than later, as it is now believe to be the cause of those “insta-deaths” you might be experiencing in game.
Please note that the upcoming patch is clearly not limited to these fixes, but will certainly include these updates, as “Vincent0K” has mentioned.
Meanwhile, DICE developer “Trydling” has shared that the studio has “a game update on PS4 in the works for the week of Nov 25 and will be able to share details on it soon.”
