New Battlefield 4 Patch hits PS4 – Supposed to Eliminate Crashes


A new patch for Battlefield 4 has just been offered to the PS4 version. According to the post on the Battlelog Forums, here’s the list of potential fixes:

“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”

5 minutes after I tweeted this news, @AlphaSpookster replied that it’s still crashing for him/her, so play at your own risk still.

Played a full match without incident, then on the infamous Flood Zone map, which crashes all the time, well… it still crashes.
