Next Battlefield 4 Patch on “Multiple Platforms” Expected Later This Month

January 9, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


In an update today on the Battlefield 4 Control Room from Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling, we can expect a new Battlefield 4 patch on multiple platforms this month:

Just a short note that we are finalizing the next game update for multiple platforms, aiming to release them later this month. Stay tuned for the full details here in the Battlefield 4 Control Room.

The Battlefield 4 Control Room is where we gather all the latest intel on what we are doing to constantly improve the game based on your feedback. We at DICE have a long tradition of supporting our games and our community well after the release of a title. While millions of players are enjoying Battlefield 4, we are aware that some players are experiencing issues with the game. While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving these is our #1 priority.

We’ll let you know when more information about the upcoming patch is released, but DICE multiplayer game designers Alan Kertz and Dennis Brännvall (via MP1st) did talk about some changes over on Twitter that may or may not be happening:

Kertz: “Got a nice update yesterday on BF4 fixes balance and progress. The team has been busy while I was out. Rebalance. DMR. V40. RGO. FB. MAA. Heli. Hand Flares. Oh the humanity!”

“Small impact wins, looking at a smaller explosion sound and effect on the V40, to show off its a less effective grenade and reduce spam. I think the V40 is a bigger issue in Hardcore than Core. Agree?”

“Pretty clear people think the MAA range on their gun is an issue. Will take a look.”

Brännvall: “Watching @BattlefieldESL spectator feels outdated now in comparison, improvements are coming. Mostly tweaks and removal of clutter, better flow to spectator. All in all it adds up. Casters are doing a great job though. That said, I’m not working right now because my wife is close to ten months pregnant. Still watching comp BF4. #Married2Job #FixTheGame”
