A massive update has been rolled out for Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 4, fixing some pretty major issues that have been causing the game to crash, the sound bug that have been driving some users crazy and disabling of the irritating EMP blur effect in multiplayer that has been sending everyone dizzy.
- General stability fixes that should remove a large amount of the client crashes we are currently seeing on the PS4
- 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
- Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
- Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file by doing miscellaneous changes to the save file system. These include removing the save file saving again when quitting multiplayer
- Fixed multiple crashes that could occur when bringing up the in-game Battlelog during round transition
- Fixed a crash that could occur when using the BattleScreen
- Fixed a random crash related to destroying vehicles
- Fixed minor destruction issues in the terrain
This update is great, fixing many issues that have been ruining the game since release and it comes just after the release of the top issues tracker that DICE launched, allowing people to log their errors. The game isn’t going to be perfect just yet, likely never will be, but this patch certainly is a step in the right direction.
