A hefty patch launched for Battlefield 4 today on PlayStation 3 (1.12) and PlayStation 4, bringing along the Obliteration game mode on both systems, as well as fixing bugs, server issues, user interface issues, and more.

Here’s the full list of patch notes on both PS3 and PS4:

PlayStation 4:

Commander App:

  • Various bug fixes

General:

  • Fix for an issue where players were able to duplicate Battle Pickups by repeatedly picking up a kit
  • Fix for an issue where field upgrades would stop working after one round when players had reached the max field upgrade level
  • Fix for a crash that could occur when a player left a round
  • Added a 15 seconds warm-up timer for all Official games
  • Fix for an issue that prevented players to issue squad order around capture points during the sandstorm on Gulf of Oman
  • Fix for an issue where a squad leader would kick a member from the squad, but the slot wouldn’t become available for others to join
  • Option added for double tap forward to sprint (when on foot)

Graphical:

  • Fix for an issue where the player would get a water splash effect on the screen after crashing an EOD/MAV/SUAV into the water

Modes:

  • Added Conquest Small on PlayStation 4
  • Added a competitive Obliteration game mode

Servers:

  • Server Browser support added to Squad Join (Beta)
  • Fix for an issue where server administrators couldn’t ban players that had clan tags
  • Fix for an issue that could cause the game to freeze while in the My Rental Server menu

User Interface:

  • Fix for an issue where the Squad Join (Beta) feature wouldn’t display squad members presence correctly
  • Fix for an issue where the kill card wasn’t displayed in some cases in Hardcore mode
  • Added total team experience points to the end of round screen for the Capture the Flag game mode
  • Added user interface options for tweaking the ADS aiming sensitivity
  • Dog tags are rearranged in the kill cards so the right one is not obstructed

Vehicles:

  • Fix for an issue where the flag would occasionally float in mid-air when players got out of vehicles while carrying the flag
  • Removed the boost button press to turn off boost for vehicles, boost should be turned off by releasing the accelerator, this makes it consistent with soldier sprint and helps using vehicle boost easier

Weapons:

  • Fix for an issue where a weapon would flail wildly after a player would die
  • Removed the 2nd set of shell that are visible in the speed loader when reloading the M412 revolver
  • Fix for the Hawk Shotgun missing “pump action” animation in 3rd person while crouching
  • Fix for RPG-7 rocket remaining visible in the launcher after the last shot is fired while zoomed in
  • Fixed the bipod animations for MTAR-21
  • Foregrip in 3rd person now has hand in the correct position on M416/M417
  • Fix for a broken animation when switching to AWS as main weapon
