DICE has started rolling out updates for the PC and Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4 that fix several bugs and increase overall stability.

The PC update fixes the “sound loop crash” that caused the game to freeze and makes some general stability improvements. While the Xbox One updates fixes an issue that caused the game to crash when spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT, fixes the missing sound glitch in Team/Squad Deathmatch, and more.

DICE announced yesterday that it would be reintroducing Platoons, a way for players to group up before entering a match, to Battlefield 4 very soon.

PC Game update notes

  • Fix for the so called “sound loop crash” issue that caused the game to freeze
  • Fix for an issue that sometimes prevented players from shooting while in the gunner position of a vehicle
  • Fix for the headshot icon appearing incorrectly at non-headshot deaths, such as suicide or dying of an explosion
  • General stability improvements

Mantle
