Battlefield 4 PS4 "General Stability" Patch: Hopefully, A Cure-All

Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 4 was nigh-on unplayable online. Now, hopefully, the issues will be resolved once and for all.

Developer DICE has delivered yet another title update for the ailing shooter, which has experienced crashing, freezing and other debilitating issues since launch. This new patch promises to improve general stability and as a result, it will eliminate "a large amount" of client crashes.

They do recommend that you restart your game after the updated is installed, just in case. Here's the detailed list of fixes for the latest patch; it sounds encouraging:

  • General stability fixes that should remove a large amount of the client crashes we are currently seeing on the PS4
  • Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds
  • Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
  • Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file by doing miscellaneous changes to the save file system. These include removing the save file saving again when quitting multiplayer
  • Fixed multiple crashes that could occur when bringing up the in-game Battlelog during round transition
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the BattleScreen
  • Fixed a random crash related to destroying vehicles
  • Fixed minor destruction issues in the terrain

DICE is also working on a new update that should incorporate player feedback. However, for stability reasons, it's obvious that this patch needed to happen first; can't have an opinion about a game that doesn't work, right? Well, besides- "hey, freakin' fix it!"

There's already a feedback system. When it crashes it asks you to report on it. I guess this would be in place regardless? Either way this is good, hopefully. This game has crashed a lot, however, it's know here near Cod MW2 crashes. The sound was frustrating though. Glad that'll be fixed.

There are definitely some issues still but overall the game is a blast to play. I don't have many complaints at all.
