Battlefield 4 PC Update Released, PS4 Patch Pushed
Filed under: BATTLEFIELD 4, PATCH


DICE has launched a brand new patch for the PC edition of the FPS, Battlefield 4, addressing a number of issue, chief among which was the one-hit kill bug (honestly, I have no idea what they're talking about, but apparently it's fixed, so that's what counts).

Here's more info about the update:

PC patch notes

  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
  • Fixed the audio bug where audio sometimes randomly dropped out while playing on certain multiplayer maps (typically Golmud Railway and Hainan Resort)
  • Fixed the "one-hit kill bug" where occasionally damage from a single bullet was applied multiple times
  • Fixed a common crash that would occur when exiting from the Single Player Campaign to Main Menu
  • Tweaked the network and computer performance screen to show proper values. Players can now test their computer and network connection and get recommendations if they need to adjust something to improve their gameplay experience.

Sony also said that "the PS4 game update that was originally meant to go live Dec 3 is undergoing some additional testing and will be rescheduled for a later date. We will get back with final details as soon as we have verification that the update is good to go."

Anyone playing BF4 on PC? I missed out on a couple sales, was down to $25 and I missed it. Stupid family and stupid Thanksgiving, keeping me offline...

I refused to pay to beta test a triple A game, not even if it was discounted. Specially an EA game as buggy as BF4. I will wait until they release GotY/ultimate edition of BF4 (BF4 main + premium for under $60). That is another thing, this is not a $60 game more like a $100 game to me...

Yep. EA can suck my hairy nut sack. They need to adjust the pricing big time. Anyone knows that BF is worthless w/o the DLC packs. They need to make it so the whole package including all DLC is US$ 60 but US$ 100+ is plain retarded.
OR sell the original game for US$ 60 and then release real substantial US$ 30 - 40 expansion packs with significant additions to both, the single player and the multiplayer.

The current blatant rip-off milking model is only for tards though. Not buying another BF game until they get rid of that Premium bullshit.

The game is still terrible on PC. The crashing and sound issues have mostly been ironed out, the main problem now is still the terrible netcode and almost non existent hit detection because of it, and each new patch that "fixes" the netcode makes it worse! It was better how it was on day 1!

If you thought BF3's netcode was bad... You haven't played BF4! Getting shot after going behind cover, point blank shots don't register, the amazing "one shot kill" bug where a single bullet registers multiple times, etc.

I got gifted BF4 over the weekend and I've had very few problems with the game. The hit detection is a little iffy at times, but then all BF games since BC2 have been like that.
As a game it's certainly far less rage inducing than BF3 ever was.
