Report: Battlefield 4's Latest PC Update Breaks SLI & Removes Grass Physics

DSOGaming writes: "So when Battlefield 4 was released, there was major flickering when SLI was enabled. With its second (or third) update, the game was fixed and was working fine with SLI systems. And then game another update that had a HUGE impact on the game's SLI performance. And now with this latest update that has just been launched, that awful flickering is back with a punch." (Battlefield 4, PC)

Wow, it just get's worst. Words escape me for sure and my heart goes out to the PC BF community.

On the PS4, I find that when the match begins, level textures seem to take a bit longer to load up since the most recent update.

DICE/EA are really struggling with this one.

At least I don't get kicked out as often.... for now!

I still get a lot of rubberbanding whether I'm running or driving a vehicle. It isn't constant but when it does occur it is really frustrating.

Yeah its a same that the game is in the state that it's in. I'm afraid that Dice might of stretched their resources a little too thin releasing on so many platforms. People don't realize how hard it is to develop for systems at launch because tools are changing all the time as each company is always updating at a constant basis.

But the kind of world we live in,everything has to be perfect and work correctly. Unfortunately, Dice was under a deadline to release this before COD came out and the current situation with Battlefield is the result of that. I'm sure that they will iron out the remaining issues and their next game should be more polished. Hopefully.....

For the most part it is still playable and I can honestly say I would rather play a broken BF4 then another COD title.

Honestly, its barely crashing on PS4 right now. On my case, I play like 2h per day and maybe once every 10-15 matches it has crashed

They need to fix the lost Single Player saves and the Multiplayer on the PS3 Version.

The textures are missing for me for the most poart, especially on hills and such and the texture flickering is indeed back.

Lol I feel bad for dice. EA just gave them a bad taste in my mouth by rushing products out. Last EA game I buy for a long time right next to capcom.

They are rushing to fix stuff and wind up breaking other stuff. *sniffle*

It's a damn fun and kickass games when it works tho...

The only game I pre-ordered in the whole year and look how it turned out. I paid $39 and it was still too much. EA is where great developers go to get their life blood sucked out of.

Dice are great devs. I blame EA for making them rush the game out. I wish EA would stop trying to compete with COD every year. Face it EA you can't beat COD in sales. I wouldn't be surprise if some devs leave Dice like Infinity Ward. EA and Activision only want your money. They don't care if they sell broken games.

Well isn't that just nifty.

Now that's funny! :)

DICE and EA are just jokes now. This game is a mess.
kB0  +   276d ago
I honestly regret being an early adopter....From now on, both BF and Cod will not receive my money anymore.

Time to move onto newer and greater things:)

what about killzone sf?
kB0  +   276d ago
Not too sure about that, it was a pretty big step forward for the series. But again nothing to cry home about...then again I only played it offline single player, I dont really go crazy for the online of Killzone (prob cuz I suck:P).

PLaying it through remote play I enjoyed it:P, though I agree AI is dumb...and sometimes breaks immersion.

hit detection is messed up now too, sad...very sad.
