Battlefield 4 Patched

DICE has patched the Windows edition of Battlefield 4, their military shooter sequel. The update addresses a number of bugs and issues, though it may have introduced a couple of new ones, as word is SLI rigs may now exhibit graphical flickering and the revive bar sometimes gets stuck, two problems they say they are looking into. In addition to bugfixes, they also promise improvements to what they themselves refer to as the game's "so-called 'Netcode'." Here's the list of fixes:

  • Fix for a crash that would cause the game to stall, resulting in a sound loop. This should eliminate most of the problems relating to this.
  • Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for “roadkilling” opponents.
  • Fixed one of the issues related to the so-called “Netcode” (see below for details).
  • Fix for an issue where 4x the damage from a vehicle's minigun would be applied to the chest when a player had the Defense specialization equipped.
  • Fix for player tags not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members.
  • Fix for graphical flickering appearing on terrain.
  • Fixed the instance where players suddenly would transition into Spectator Mode while playing the Defuse game mode.
  • Fix for a Defuse bug where none of the teams would win a round by letting the timer run out. -Fix for players getting stuck in the revive screen after being killed.
  • Fix for players getting stuck in the kill camera after being revived.
  • Fix for the game mode specific ribbons being counted twice in the multiplayer progression.
  • Made NVidia 331.82 or later driver versions mandatory for all players.
  • Disabled DirectX 11.1 on NVidia cards that have outdated drivers.
  • Fixed driver version not being properly detected on NVidia Optimus systems.
  • Fixed a minor crash that could occur when bringing up the scoreboard.

I think people should have ten times the hate for DICE delivering buggy terrible products than for Activision delivering working products that are clearly in demand.

My guess would be that EA pressured DICE to have a product ready by a certain date regardless of the state it's in and now that they've likely made a return on the product, they can piece together one patch after another to fix what should have been stomped out if there was proper quality assurance.

But hey, at least they got it out before the release of Ghosts so that must make all of these bugs okay.
