Battlefield 4 gets a stability patch on Xbox One

You know what would be nice in Battlefield 4? Some stability. The hope is that some stability comes from the previously delayed patch (was supposed to release on December 2) for the Xbox One version of Battlefield 4, which starts rolling out today. The patch addresses the stability of the game and some common in-game issues that players have been experiencing. 

This patch contains the following fixes:

  • Fixed three common crashes that could occur during map transitions
  • Fixed a common crash that could occur when using the in-game Battlelog in the "end of round" screen
  • Fixed two crashes related to destroying vehicles
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when the player lost connection to a server
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the scoreboard
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when players were using the voice chat
  • Optimized performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects on some levels
  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
  • Fixed the "one-hit kill" bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed
  • Fixed a memory leak that could lead to crashes at certain points
  • Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign
  • 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
  • Fixed an issue with going online after resuming your Xbox One from suspended mode
  • Fixed some issues with the handling of Xbox One parties
  • Made the icons used to signal voice chat status more reliable

Hopefully this patch really does make a difference, because so far DICE's patches for the PC version haven't done anything.
