Battlefield 4, from the day it was made available to the public, has been nothing short of a problematic affair and a massive disaster to say the least. However, with all the bugs and related issues with the game on nearly all the platforms it has released, DICE is desperately trying to address those issues with patches almost regularly. Now, according to reports, the PC version of the game has also been treated to a new patch that promises a host of improvements.

Developers, DICE have just released yet another new update for the PC version of the game. The new patch focuses on several server issues alongside some quick fixes for the highly discussed obliteration bug, which has been preventing players from picking up the bomb once the carrier has been neutralized.

Apart from that, the Battlefield 4 PC game update also focuses on minor fixes in the gameplay. It states that after the update players won’t be experiencing terrain flickering, while making use of the SLI/CrossFire setup.

Moreover, the death of soldiers with 1 HP has been fixed, alongside the three top reasons for game crashes on the PC platform. The issue where the UI was permanently shown, after a player has accepted to be revived, as it seems, has also been fixed.

Here’s the full list of patch notes for the PC version of the game:

PC Game Update Notes
-Fix for terrain flickering when using SLI/CrossFire setup
-Fix for three of the top crash issues on the PC platform
-Fix for case when soldier can die with 1 HP instead of 0
-Fix for the issue where the revive UI could be permanently shown after accepting a revive

R17 Server Update Notes

EA has been subjected to a boatload of criticisms since the final launch of Battlefield 4 since the game, on all the platforms it has released, has been infested with a huge amount of bugs – for which the company has been blamed that it pushed out an unfinished title just to capture the holiday time profits.
