Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment and provided a statement in regards to several issues plaguing the launch of the recently-released multiplatform video game, “Battlefield 4.” According to a report by MP1st on Nov. 2, a representative from the studio confirmed that players for all three currently-available versions of the first-person shooter are experiencing “crashes and freezes.”
He assured fans that the development team is keeping logs of the more frequent issues and are trying to fix the problems. You can check out some screenshots from the fourth main “Battlefield” title from the slideshow located near the top of this article and the comments below:
Players on all formats have been experiencing game crashes and freezes while playing. We have logs of the most frequently occurring client crashes, and we are actively working to Obliterate the cause of these crashes in upcoming updates.
The same representative also revealed the fixing process to the crashing and freezing issues. The server-side updates can be released instantly while the game client patches requires more time due to additional testing and certification procedures. You can find his statement below:
Note that crashes come in different types, and therefore this is technically not one single issue. There are two kinds of crashes and two types of updates that can address them: server-side updates that we can release on the fly (four of these have already been released since launch), and game client updates that require more in-depth testing and certification before they can go live.
“Battlefield 4” was released by Electronic Arts on Oct. 29 for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America.
The same title will be available at the launches for the PS4 and Xbox One later this month. Since both next-generation systems are new, the first-person shooter may not run smoothly on Sony’s and Microsoft’s latest console hardware units. Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment developed “Battlefield 4” for all five aforementioned platforms using the new Frostbite 3 engine.
