Battlefield 4 News: God Mode Glitch Discovered in China Rising DLC's Dragon Pass Map, Fixes Coming for PC and 360 Versions [VIDEO]
Well, that was quick. Battlefield 4's China Rising DLC has been out for premium members for less than 24 hours, and already the first bug has been discovered, and it's a doozy.
YouTuber xFactorGaming has just made a video showing an area of Dragon Pass that exists outside of normal time and space, apparently falling somewhere within a dimension of sight and sound, where no one can kill, or be killed. Perhaps the only true "safe" zone in any FPS. You could fire off a dozen headshots with any weapon and make nary a dent. Check out the video below to see the glitch in action.
Enjoy the glitch while you can, because DICE is readying itself for another round of fixes for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. Like the Second Assault DLC, China Rising is also having issues that, as EA described to CVG, could result in "an occasional hiccup, issue, glitch, or problem that could interrupt or prohibit your gameplay."
Those hiccups include a prompt to download the DLC again after it's already been installed, kicks from games, and 360 players are even reporting that they're unable to join matches.
"DICE have identified the issue and is implementing a solution to the problem. This fix will take some time to be fully completed, but players should be noticing normal gameplay behavior soon," EA said. "We're investigating this issue and will provide updates as quickly as possible," EA said.
Bet you're happy about grabbing that Premium membership, huh?
China Rising brings in four new maps: Guilin Peaks, Altai Range, Silk Road, and the aforementioned Dragon Pass. Beyond the maps, the DLC offers 10 new assignments, just as Second Assault did, as well as the return of the Air Superiority mode, a sort of territory capture mode, just taken to the skies. One player wins once he or she has more planes in the air than the other. We last saw this mode in Battlefield 3's End Game DLC.
As always, new weapons are another welcome adition, and China Rising features five of its own: the MTAR-21 and MP7 submachine guns, RPK light machine gun, L96AI sniper rifle, and the L85A2 assault rifle.
Players also get to control the UCAV and SUAV drones. The UCAV works similarly to the TV Guided Missile, and is first launched like a mortar round before players can control it in the air. It fires airburst explosives from a range of about 400 meters. The SUAV is slower, and carries a laser designator to mark targets for guided weaponry. Or, you could just crash the damn thing into the target of your choice. Probably not as efficient, but far more surprising, especially since your enemies will be able to see that laser.
As far as vehicles go, dirt bikes return from Battlefield 3, and there's also a new vehicle, a Chinese bomber, the Xian H-6 airplane.
