Dice Release 16th Battlefield 4 Patch

HardwarePal : After all the patches, PC users are still waiting for Dice to fix all the issues in Battlefield 4. Just an hour ago the new 16th patch has been released. (Battlefield 4, Dice, EA, PC)

So glad I never brought this game now :)

Stupid idiots they are...

It might bother OCD Perfectionists but for most its playable!
Septic  +   226d ago
Yeah it is playable, no doubt and DICE are working on it but they're working on issues that shouldn't have existed in the first place, and certainly not issues that should be prevalent for so long.

Lets hope this patch stabilizes things. If I see another blue screen 'an error has occurred' I will cry.

Agree somewhat, don't mind the occasional crash in MP but SP is a joke, took me about 4 tedious playthroughs to just finish sp, listening to the same old cutscenes over and over again is not fun when it's crashes your game save all the time, took me 4 attempts finishing off normal sp then another 4 Times for hard trophy etc etc

I will get this game when I get my ps4. The game is extremely fun having played it on pc. Just needs to be fixed and EA needs to buzz off.

i dont care how many it takes... the fact that they're committed to making it even better is what matters... The game is AMAZING now that the crashing has GREATLY decreased... even with the few hiccups, that are becoming less and less everyday, this game is STILL fun as hell...

It's mighty fishy how the same little sites make a mad dash to N4G to say 1 or 2 people are having an issue 20min after a patch release, without a shred of evidence. Hell, any CoD fanboy with a vindetta against EA/DICE or anything BF related can plaster something on N4G... show proof of issues after patch

The fact is it should work the day it comes out
Patches are nice to fix things but this game shipped broken
Miskonius  +   226d ago
Agreed. This new trend of releasing games in the Beta state needs to stop if EA and DICE want to sell any games in the future.
uncharted56  +   226d ago
I agree it should had work the day it came out but blame the greedy bastards at EA for that.

Some PC Gamers are still using BETA drivers, have mangled registries, and have really old drivers on their PC's.

DICE has busted their butts fixing things and if you still have issues on the PC side then you may wanna start looking at YOUR PC before you start yelling at DICE.

I have only crashed ONCE and only had a no server connect issue on like day two of BF4 release but then again my drivers are up to date and I keep my registry clean.

Battlefield 4 no matter how many bugs is still such an epic game. The Destruction really put's it over the top compared to any other shooter out there.

Hammering away at enemies inside a structure as each gunshot or tank round chips away at it then eventually watching the structure collapse or explode to bits is the best going in any shooter right now.

This game is not as well Put as BF3 was. It feels Rushed, It released Rushed, The game took 16patches and the game is still broken. I am really glad I skipped out on EA wannabe COD FPS releases even if it was just 2 years. BF games used to release every4-5 years thats why people played BF3 so much. BF4 did sale 1/3 that BF3 did. Its sad really.
Mr7Beans  +   226d ago
-BF3 was also rushed, and it had a bad launch just like BF4.
-BF games used to release every 1-2 years, not 4-5.
Most of your comment, is wrong.
Mega24  +   226d ago
This guy huh

People think they know what they talk about, the only long gap between a bf game was between 2 and Bad Company 2, and it wasn't that long, PC players see it as a long one since you never had BC1 and 1943. They actually put a BF game every 2 years.

All battlefield games have been rushed since EA wants to win the race against CoD, which it won't.
Rubberlegs  +   226d ago
If you count the Bad Company games yeah its more of 2yr dev time. BF2 was released in 2005, BF3 was released in 2011, that's a pretty big gap in between those two games where the dev cycle with BF4 was only two years.
I always felt that it does need a longer dev cycle with how much that goes into the multiplayer and they release enough content over time to keep it going strong.
MrRaccoon90  +   226d ago
I Don't Count Bad Company at all. It was more of a Side BF engine game blah. Both games felt incomplete. BF3 to BF4 is not a huge jump at all It was very disappointing and the sales were much less than its predecessor.

i got a patch on my ps4 last week and since i havent had anyissues except audio going silent in cars,quads etc
rubber banding gone
server crashes gone
Shakengandulf  +   226d ago
I still have all of what you just mentioned, fell through the map a few times today, took at least 3~5 mins to sort it self out...
Crashed twice, rubber banding, sound loss on at least three different maps.
The last patch felt absolutely useless.
Infact, the last time it crashed, it took me and a mate out at the same time, coincidence?
(Ps4)
Mega24  +   226d ago
maybe you two got a damaged ps4 or something, cuz most errors are gone now, I lag due to a really sucky internet, but other than that the game hass been running smooth.
Elwenil  +   226d ago
I play on PS4 and after the last patch my issues got worse. Conquest is near unplayable since you play 80% of the match and then crash and lose all your progress.
ramiuk1  +   226d ago
i take it all back,went online about an hour after i wrote that and it was a total mess again lol.
Drakesfortune  +   226d ago
I cant wait for to get this game however i am not looking forward to sitting there and waiting for all these patches download lol
JeromeNtheHouse  +   226d ago
That's it...Keep em comin EA.
iistuii  +   226d ago
Still no 32 player conquest on PS4. I don't crash as much, but on 64 player maps it's still missing sounds & lags like hell a lot of the time. I just stick to domination until they sort out the normal conquest.
sovietsoldier  +   226d ago
they fix the suav but do nothing to nerf the ucav spam on rush maps.
