The lights are on
A new Battlefield 4 patch on PC is designed to fix a number of issues. Additionally, DICE has flagged a problem that stems from SLI-enabled video cards related to flickering terrain.
The patch fixes some issues with the killcam and reviving and something called “kill trading.” The latter issue is due to high latency and caused player bullets to kill despite that individual being deemed dead by the server.
Here is the full list of patch notes:
Battlefield 4 has been plagued with ongoing problems across platforms. DICE has set up a tracker for the game’s 22 biggest problems. EA has also halted all of the studio’s other work pending repairs to Battlefield 4.
Our TakeEven when DICE fixes a crash, like the one on the top of this list, it doesn’t seem to be able to eliminate it entirely. The same thing has happened on PlayStation 4, where crashing problems are less frequent, but still occurring. Here’s hoping that everyone getting Battlefield 4 for Christmas has a better experience than has been offered so far.
