'Battlefield 4' receives new PS4 update, Xbox One update still in limbo

See also

The Playstation 4 version of Battlefield 4 received a new update on Wednesday, Dec. 11 that fixes a number of issues with the military shooter on the next-gen console including constant crashes. This is the second update the game has received on the PS4 in the last two weeks but the Xbox One patch promised last week is still no where to be seen.

The Battlefield 4 update will roll out to PS4 owners throughout the day and may require you to restart the game.

DICE originally said that Xbox One owners would receive the first patch for the game the week of Dec. 2. That week has come and gone with no patch and no update on the status of the patch.

The developer also released an issue tracker yesterday meant to keep players up to date on the status of the most pressing defects with Battlefield 4. It has already been updated to reflect the update that was released to the PS4 today.

Here's the complete list of fixes delivered to Battlefield 4 on the PS4 in today's patch.

  • 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
