PS4 Battlefield 4 January 14th Patch Aims To Fix Various Bugs

PS4 Battlefield 4 January 14th Patch Aims To Fix Various Bugs

Battlefield 4 has been DICE’s worst game release so far in terms of bugs. The shooter launched last October and up till today, it’s a broken experience — and by the look of things it’ll remain this way until the next Battlefield game is released. But DICE keeps trying, and they’ve released yet another patch to hopefully fix some of the game’s bugs. Find the patch notes inside.

Jan 14 PS4 Game Update Notes:

-Various fixes for improving general stability
-Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rouge Transmission and Operation Locker
-Fixed issue with player spawning under the map in Lancang Dam
-Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
-Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
-Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera
-Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
-Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)
-EU Players: Fixed bug where game wouldn’t start when when the console was running in any of these languages: Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Brazilian Portuguese
-Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
-Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done

There’s no word on when a game update will be released for Xbox One. The PS4 patch follows the release of a new PC update.

    Mostly worthless patch. Yay! I’m tired of dying around damn corners and behind cover!

    Told you that game was broken. I don’t now what DICE can do. Seems like the issue a foundation one.. In that it lies at the game’s core.

    Broken : kind of. Unplayable : no. Enjoyable : some time… More so than COD. While the play has gotten better, the one hit kills and kills behind cover are seriously upsetting. By releasing somewhat weekly patches (that fix very little at a time) they are attempting to appease those who know BF4 is functionally challenged, by showing that they are at least working on the game. All the while dancing around the issue with one hit kill deaths, kills behind cover, and late deaths.

    Yeah. Like I said, seems as if they’ll release a new Battlefield game before 4 is fixed. And yeah, I do enjoy it sometimes.
