Battlefield 4 News: Server Update Hits Game on All Platforms
DICE is still working hard to make sure the studio's Battlefield 4 has the edge now that Call of Duty: Ghosts is out. The developer recently informed players via Battlelog that a new server update has hit the game on all platforms.
According to the post, the new update should "fix some of the most common server crashes across all platforms." You can see the official patch notes below:
- Fixed two of the most common server crashes (All platforms)
- The "admin.say" command should now work properly (PC)
- The "vars.preset" command should now work better in conjunction with other vars settings (PC) (It is now easier for server admins to set a server preset)
- Fixed a bug in the queue system regarding GUID (PC)
- Fixed various minor bugs (PC)
The update comes after DICE told fans in a previous Battlelog update that staff was working on freezing and crashing issues earlier this week.
"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."
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.
