New Battlefield 4 Update…Again

Aggressive Gaming

Are you among the millions of gamers having difficulties with Battlefield 4? Well after several patches DICE and EA have released yet another update hoping to stabilize the popular shooter’s online modes, which has been fraught with glitches, crashes, graphical hiccups, general cheating and the newest gaming phenomenon, kill trading, which I’ve even seen some players trying to do on Battlefield 3 lately. (Battlefield 4, Dice, EA, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Thank god I skipped out on this game what a mess.
Guwapo77  +   127d ago
It is a really fun game when it works though. Like you said it's a mess.
Tvensky  +   127d ago
Still that engine has biggest potential out there for shooters... It has those BF moments.. you cant describe them, its like magic, you have to be there to feel that action thriller called Battlefield.. (when it works!) ;)
da_2pacalypse  +   126d ago
yeah, the game has so much potential... But it's pathetic that just about all versions of the game are so broken. I mean I've heard enough of the next gen versions being broken... But my PC version is also broken... I get a red screen of death after each game, so I have to quit at the end of each game and rejoin the same server again.... At this point I've given up... the game sometimes even just freezes when the skytower drops on Shanghai...

It's upsetting because I still have faith in Dice... I just don't think EA gives them the chance to be as good as they can be...

Its not that bad on x1..

Game has only crashed during campaign and the server browser acts wonky.. But all in all its not that bad.. At least in my experience with it.. Bf3 was no better
sgtGanGreen  +   127d ago
Agree, bf3 was not better, people are assholes
HeavenlySnipes  +   127d ago
BF3 was far better than what people are describing

I got BF3 at launch and the biggest issue were the lack of official EA servers and some unbalanced weapons, not not being able to play the game without it crashing 50% of the time

Like I stated above, My BF4 on PS4 is running fine (only got it a few days ago), better than BF3 ever ran on PS3.
n4rc  +   127d ago
Ya sure.. Like falling through the map every round wasn't just as bad..lol

Or hiding inside walls etc.. Different problems but same result
ScytheX3  +   127d ago
has dice or will dice ever fix the ps3 (and ps4 from what ive heard) problem where the campaign progression keeps getting lost from save file curruption?
Guwapo77  +   127d ago
It looks like SP mode is playing second fiddle to MP modes. I'm hoping for the SP to get fixed as well. *crosses fingers*
Rich1631  +   127d ago
PS4 version is fixed.
cyclindk  +   127d ago
Well they haven't lost me as a customer yet, but I sure will not invest in Premium if these bugs and MORE don't get hammered out...

Looks like yet another reason to get the Xbox Box One!
Game looks as good and plays better!!

Sony trolls disagree and reply below....
sgtGanGreen  +   127d ago
Played on all 3 platforms, xbox one have minimum problems, ps4 is a mess and pc is in the middle
Elwenil  +   127d ago
The only one trolling here is you.
Legion21  +   127d ago
As a gamer, I will disagree
liquidhalos  +   127d ago
You said "yet another reason" like there was another reason to get the xbox one. Care to enlighten us?
R0n0rve  +   127d ago
I'm playing it on the Xbox One and I still experience crashes and reset SP progress...
NioRide  +   127d ago
Its funny, everyone is now complaining about how the game is crashing for them all the time, but it has actually turned my system around and now I run at higher fps and haven't crashed at all since it.
Smoey  +   127d ago
Replace your QA department or if they're capable listen to them!
Linchpin  +   127d ago
It's an EA game... you've only got yourselves to blame for buying it new.
bjmartynhak  +   127d ago
My copy is on my shelf waiting for the game to be fully "released" before playing... having a blast with Killzone MP so far
Legion21  +   127d ago
If that's the case you should have waited for a price drop or if you're patient enough the inevitable prenium edition.
bjmartynhak  +   127d ago
True... I only blame my impulsiveness :)
spektical  +   127d ago
yup im waiting for a significant price drop or premium edition 6 months down the road
liquidhalos  +   127d ago
Yeah killzone is freaking awesome man, im crap but damn its fun
UbiquitousClam  +   127d ago
Cant say for PC or PS4 but on xbox one the patches have done noting for my experience, the server browser and quick match option is still broken, it can sometimes take a good 10-15 mins to get into a match and it still has huge rubber banding issues and crashes to the dashboard at east once or twice an hour.

It seems there about as good at testing there patches as they were at testing there game.
Kennytaur  +   127d ago
Is your intenet speed decent? I have it on PS4, but I join servers in just a couple seconds and then the rest is just loading the map. I've experienced very little lag in-game as well. Make sure to join servers with low ping.
Gozer  +   127d ago
On the X1, try not spamming the A button on a game type in Quick Match. It seems to try to start on more than one server causing a crash if you do. Try being patient and pressing the A button once and wait to see if you connect. Sometimes it takes a few tries, but Ive found that once it does connect its stable.

Is there a guinness book of records for "game with the most patches within 3 months of release", or "world's most broken game?"
JoseV76  +   127d ago
I just got this game last night and its running good, haven had an issue!
CyrusLemont  +   127d ago
This has got me so worried about SW: Battlefront, if EA rushes the development team doing that and we get a half assed game, ima be f*****g pissed.

MrCrimson  +   127d ago
What sucks is that this is a really good game.

Best shooter in the market right now by far.
Phoenix76  +   127d ago
I agree with you there. I'd rather have BF4 on my PS4 than CoD anyday.
Caleb_H  +   127d ago
Yeah, once after bf4 crashed I put in my CoD ghosts disc for the first time (got it free with the b2g1 at target) and that's when I realized how freaking awesome bf4 is. Because even though it's technically flawed, at least it's not a reskinned game from 2007 that somehow got shittier.

Remember the time where there was no internet and games used to be finished when released?

Once Titanfall hits this game will be forgotten anyway.If EA doesnt screw it up like Battlefield 4.At least EA dont own Titanfall so hopefully respawn will have enough common sence to go to microsoft as the publisher with the second one.I dont wont EA to have control of these games and screw them up.They are hands down the worst company in gaming

With EA as the publisher you can pretty much guess it will be kicked out the door before its ready.
Npugz7  +   127d ago
My PS4 version works great after the updates!!
ironmonkey  +   127d ago
Ps4/pc version getting the better attention.
Caleb_H  +   127d ago
And now the field upgrades don't work. Thanks...
Mr_Butata  +   126d ago
