It seems as though every day a new patch for the problem-filled Battlefield 4 is released that will hopefully solve some of the issues that gamers have been having with the game since day one. Today is no different as the latest patch for Battlefield 4 has been released for the Xbox One.
The latest patch address the often exploited “one hit kill” glitch that was fixed on the PC and PS4 last week. The new update also “further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign.” The corrupt file issue is still likely to have an effect on many as the problem hasn’t been fully fixed in the update.
The full update list is as follows:
- Fixed three common crashes that could occur during map transitions
- Fixed a common crash that could occur when using the in-game Battlelog in the “end of round” screen
- Fixed two crashes related to destroying vehicles
- Fixed a crash that could occur when the player lost connection to a server
- Fixed a crash that could occur when using the scoreboard
- Fixed a crash that could occur when players were using the voice chat
- Optimized performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects on some levels
- Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
- Fixed the “one-hit kill” bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed
- Fixed a memory leak that could lead to crashes at certain points
- Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign
- 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
- Fixed an issue with going online after resuming your Xbox One from suspended mode
- Fixed some issues with the handling of Xbox One parties
- Made the icons used to signal voice chat status more reliable
Battlefield 4 still has ways to go until it is deemed “fixed”, but at least DICE is trying to get things done. It still doesn’t forgive them, however, for releasing a broken game to begin with.
