Battlefield 4: disaster report

October 29th 2013.
A day that should have been one of ignominy for all at Electronic Arts and DICE, but one that has to surely go down in infamy. The day Battlefield 4 hit shelves, and set in motion a series of events that has shaken the company and its prized development studio, and punctured waning public faith.

"February 3rd 2014.
3 months after release. Battlefield 4 works to a standard I'd expect from a boxed video game from a major publisher."

You're kidding, right?

Yeah, I mean... who needs sound in Team Deathmatch or Squad Deathmatch? Who needs more than half of the names to show up on the scoreboard so you can discern who is who? And really, who actually wants the "Ongoing +100% XP Event" to actually be something other than a flashing banner to get your hopes up?

Not me, that's for sure! I just love it every time I am killed through the roof of Metro 2014 by untouchable players exploiting a glitch that has existed since the last iteration of the game. I live for those moments. In fact, it is only when all of these come together am I truly experiencing the standard that anyone would expect from a boxed video game from a major publisher.

It still doesn't work well for me, and I have almost all flagship hardware.

the game works GREAT now and thank God an actual unbiased writer from Eurogamer can be truthful about this fact and not have to depend on the CoD fanboys and EA haters that plague N4G. BF4 now is WORLDS better than it was at launch and will continue to get better with every new update.

You say all of that like its a good thing.

Also it's not "worlds" better since they actually had to delay all of DICE's future projects which included the DLC which I paid for in advance (Premium).

Not to mention you have a thing for defending all of these f*** up's from DICE/EA.

That last patch on ps4 made the game horribly unstable and alot of functions are broken.

PS4.After the last patch my singleplayer progress has been deleted again maybe for 10 times.The rubber banding and zero health is still here.Last night the game crashed 4 times(blue screen)I don't know what to do.I give up.Never more brokenfield game at launch

Battlefield 4 - making rubber banding a standard.

Remember the problems with Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 the next time EA/DICE try to sell you their game. Which just happens to be Star Wars Battlefront. I wonder how many people will just forget how bad they hated all of this crap when it comes out.

Battlefield, where a patch is needed to patch the previous patch that patched that other patch.

SlapHappyJesus1598d ago

Well said.
I was one of the strange cases where the game pretty much ran flawlessly for me at launch . . . then broke over the patching process . . .

Yi-Long1598d ago

By now, it should just be called Patchyfield 4.

I loved Battlefield but i've lost all faith in the series now, i haven't play it for over a month and that's saying something in battlefield 3 i played every day was level 100 and had over 700 hours game time but this game is soooo broken it depresses me to play it.

R.i.P Battlefield franchise
