DICE and EA Release the 15th Update For Battlefield 4

HardwarePal : When you see the release of the 15th patch for a game in one month, even if you haven’t played it its no brainer to conclude that Battlefield 4 has been released unfinished. A new 888 MB patch has come out today for servers and PC and addresses some of the issues that has been troubling players. (Battlefield, Battlefield 4, Dice, EA, PC)

How in the world did this happen? Even GTA V got off easier than this.

I am going to run out of Hard Drive space with the updates on this game alone. You would think they could overwrite some information with the new updates....

I am on the PS4. I know this article is about the PC, but the updates are huge for the PS4 as well.... when they are released that is.

Wow, they're on the 15th update already? Nice job EA and DICE. Because who really enjoys finished games anymore, right?

This game has had more patches than my actual rank in multiplayer.

15 UPDATES? Holy crap the game has been out for a month and we already have 15 updates?! Damn EA! WTF

The possible beginning of a disastrous trend in the industry.

Just don't support this practice and play Killzone instead. I knew it was a good decision not to buy a game from EA this year.

So I guess this is acceptable for online games?

I play mostly offline and I would be pissed if single player required 15 patches to work properly.
Utalkin2me  +   670d ago
Well i have had 3 patches i think so far and i still get my save game erased....=(

At some point, you gotta blame Dice for this nonsense. Yeah EA forces the s*** out the door but other shooters are on a similar schedule and at least function within a few patches. 15 updates..../facepalm

BF4 = 86 meta despite being broken on the mp side and terrible sp

Ghosts= 74 meta despite being dogsh** all around.

KZSF= 74 meta because critics aren't into Killzone?

What in the entire f***?

Why are people even looking at Metacritic anymore...
InTheLab  +   669d ago
Why did they ever?
Phoenix76  +   669d ago
I put the blame mostly at EA's door. After all, it is EA whom decide when a game will be release, even if it's not ready for the public, because they are out to please the shareholders and not the consumers. DICE could have/proberly did ask for more time to work on the game, but EA are the one's who fund the project, they have final say.
InTheLab  +   669d ago
But the thing you have to remember is Dice IS EA. Just like how people refuse to blame Bioware for their mistakes...it's the same thing.

And everyone has a deadline and shareholders to please. Most franchises have a 2 year deadline.

At some point, you have to blame the developer for their own incompetence..

15th wtf, how many gigs total?
famoussasjohn  +   669d ago
Nearing 30GB total for the game, DLC, and patches on PC so far.
famoussasjohn  +   669d ago
So my first game after this patch..the game crashed without a reason, just abruptly closed. This shit is getting very annoying.
