As promised, the latest Battlefield 4 update for PC has been rolled out today, bringing numerous fixes to the game including an audio bug where audio would sometimes randomly drop out. Below are the full patch notes for today's update, which should download automatically upon booting up.
Dec. 3 PC Game Update 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
Despite numerous patches and updates, there remains a large number of users still unable to play Battlefield 4 due to game crashes. "We are already working hard on a new update to further increase stability," DICE said on Battlelog. Today's update releases alongside the launch of the China Rising expansion pack for Premium members on all platforms.
Meanwhile, the game update for the PS4 version of the game, which was also due out today, has been delayed and will be rescheduled for "a later date." Like the PC update, it is also supposed to fix the "one-hit kill bug." There has been no word as to when it will be released.
