New Battlefield 4 Patch for PS4 Increases Stability, Reduces Save File Corruption

Posted on December 11, 2013 AT 07:49am

DICE is currently rolling out yet another patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4, which aims to increase overall stability and reduce the chance of save file corruption.

The developer warns players that they may need to restart their game to receive the update. This latest patch includes general stability fixes which should reduce the number of crashes, fixes an audio drop out issue on large maps, reduces the probability of save file corruption by removing a secondary save when quitting multiplayer, and fixes several individual crashes.

  • 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

DICE also added that it is currently hard at work on the next patch for the game. EA has previously stated that all work on future Battlefield 4 expansions has been suspended until the current issues with multiplayer are fixed.
