We just downloaded a new patch for Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4. The title has been plagued with crashes, and the Conquest mode has been inoperable for many players.

EA and DICE have committed to fixing the game, and a patch that is available now fulfills the promise that was made last week. The duo have apologized, and players will receive double experience and a unique weapon scope from November 28 through December 5.

The patch reported addresses the following items:

  • Fixed common crashes that could occur when changing weapons or maps 
  • Reduced the probability of a corrupted save file in the single player campaign 
  • Fixed a crash occurring when resuming the single player campaign 
  • Fixed a bug where accessing PlayStation Plus subscription resulted in a connection error 
  • Improved performance when shooting at destroyed Levolution objects

Unfortunately, DICE will not be fixing the pre-match lobby system. Rather than offering that, the developer is trying something new. We’ll be testing out Battlefield 4 to see if the crashes subside.

Our Take
Early signs seem to be positive regarding the game crashes. Unfortunately, filtering the servers shows only five active: one domination, three team deathmatch, one rush. The largest server supports only 32 players. There are no full servers reported on our end, and Conquest doesn’t even seem to have an active population.
