Battlefield 4 Patched for Xbox 360
Ever the work in progress, Battlefield 4 is leaps and bounds ahead of its near broken state, but it's still not perfect. DICE recently released yet another patch for the game's Xbox 360 version. There's nothing too dramatic that the patch fixes, but thanks to TotalXbox, you can check out the complete list of changes the patch brings below.
- Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash
- Fix for missing sound in Team/Squad Deathmatch
- Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted
- Fix for an issue that would appear if a 10 users party would join a game with 8 available slots, leaving 2 of the players stuck on the loading screen
- Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive
- Fix for an invisible wall that was incorrectly present in one of the fallen concrete pipes on Zavod 311
- Fix for an issue where bullet impact sounds weren't properly matching the actual number of impacts, causing the players to feel that they died too quickly.
- Fix for an issue where the "Draw" message would not display on-screen once a Conquest round ended with both teams having the same amount of tickets
- Fix for an issue where long IDs wouldn't scroll on dog tags
- Fix for missing grass physics in terrain
- Fix for an issue where the player camera would be positioned inside of the soldier when parachute spawning
- Fix for a MAV exploit that let players reach various out-of-map locations
In related news, DICE finally let slip that PC, PS3, and PS4 players can expect the Second Assault DLC to release today for Premium players. Non-premium players get access two weeks from now on March 4.
To recap, Second Assault is the second DLC to arrive for Battlefield 4 following China Rising. It sees the return of the Capture the Flag mode, and offers four redesigned Battlefield 3 maps: Caspian Border, Gulf of Oman, Operation Firestorm, and Operation Metro. You can get a closer look at the maps here, where each is thoroughly dissected in its own respective video.
Each map has its own Levolution event that changes the way they're played and experienced: Caspian Border has a giant tower that falls down, creating a bridge to previously inaccessible areas; Oman has a sandstorm that both severely limits player visibility and brings down a crane; Operation Metro features a working elevator system; and Firestom's giant pipeline can be destroyed, resulting in a giant fire hazard.
Joining the DLC's maps are 10 new assignments, and some returningBattlefield guns - the F2000 bullpup and AS Val Soviet assault rifles, M60E4 machine gun, GOL sniper rifle, and the DAO-12 revolver-style shotgun. Gamers can also ride around on the new Desert Patrol and Skid Loader vehicles.
The developer also provided some details for the next DLC, Naval Strike. Read all about it here.
