Battlefield 4 News: DICE Working on Freezing and Crashing Issues
Battlefield 4 may have gotten a head start of its FPS competitor by releasing ahead of Activision's shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts, but that doesn't mean things off gone off entirely without a hitch for DICE and EA.
Since launching, a number of players have continued to report numerous issues with the game, mostly associated with crashing and freezing, despite
Thankfully, these issues are at the top of DICE's list of priorities, so sayeth the company in a recent Battlelog update, writing:
"Players on all formats have been experiencing game crashes and freezes while playing. We have logs of the most frequently occurring client crashes, and we are actively working to Obliterate the cause of these crashes in upcoming updates."
The company is dealing with the various issues as they're discovered, so do your part. If you've found an issue associated with freezing or crashing (or anything else for that matter), report it so that DICE can work on resolving it.
"Note that crashes come in different types, and therefore this is technically not one single issue. There are two kinds of crashes and two types of updates that can address them: server-side updates that we can release on the fly (four of these have already been released since launch), and game client updates that require more in-depth testing and certification before they can go live."
A number of other issues are also under investigation according to the post, such as losing progress in multiplayer, corruption of single player save files, and promotional battlepack items not appearing in-game or on battlelog. Fixes and patches are also incoming for micellaneous audio bugs, reset stats, and server queues not functioning.
Battlefield 4 stars a new protagonist to the series, that of Sergeant Daniel Recker, a member of the elite Tombstone Squad. He and the squad learn that an Admiral is in the midst of planning a coup to overthrow the current Chinese regime, with Russia ready to back him up.
You don't have to be an expert in foreign relations and politics to realize this would cause one hell of a domino effect that would see the whole planet embroiled in war.
Battlefield 4 is currently available now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. It will be available at launch for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
