The lights are on
Battlefield 4 on Xbox One has a new patch that brings this version up to speed with the others. Headlining the update is a fix to latency-based “kill trading.” If you’ve ever wondered how a supposedly deceased opponent killed you, it was probably due to server problems that have now been addressed.
Here’s the full list of what’s been addressed in the new update:
This is just the latest patch for Battlefield 4 that has seen problems across the five platforms it has been launched on. The issues were so severe that EA has halted DICE’s other work to repair the game. Additionally, a class action suit is in process against the publisher on behalf of investors.
The second suit, which has been filed, allege that EA executives willfully misled investors by making statements about Battlefield 4’s performance (and the publisher’s overall financial performance) that it knew weren’t true. EA has responded to that lawsuit saying that it will defend against the complaint and that the claims are “meritless.”
Our TakeMy last experience with Battlefield 4 on Xbox One was one of utter frustration. Before hard resetting my console, I crashed to the home screen more than 10 times. I also experienced crashes when matchmaking and when accessing Battlelog. In short, the game barely worked until I got into a match, during which time it was fine for a short while before crashing again.
We’ll see if this patch fixes the problems with the server browser, matchmaking, and crashing. I’ll share an update when available.
