Battlefield 4 gets new PS4 patch – crashing, corrupt saves & audio issues addressed
DICE has issued a new update for Battlefield 4 on PS4 that should fix a number of issues including ‘client crashes’, corrupt saves and the audio issues that plague the larger maps like Golmud Railway.
There’s already another patch in the works suggesting there’s still more to come. The original post over at the Battlefield forums is locked as well so I guess DICE has had enough feedback for now.
You can read my Battlefield 4 PS4 review to see what effect the issues have had on the game.
Here’s the patch notes:
We are rolling out a new game update on PS4. You might need to restart the game to have the update install. Change notes below. We are already working on the next update based on your feedback.
Dec 11 PS4 Game Update Notes
- 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
