Latest Battlefield 4 PC update aims to fix stability problems

A new update for the Windows PC version of Battlefield 4 is out today, aiming to address server stability issues that have plagued the game since launch.

According to the Battlefield blog, the patch will hit sometime later today with fixes for a memory leak issue that occured after level shutdowns, a fix addressing player rank icons on the scoreboard that were failing to update, as well as a fix for users in Asia unable to start Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 on Windows 8.1.

This update follows last week's announcement from EA Digital Illusions CE of plans to release a new game update across all platforms later in the month. A post on the game's official blog from junior product manager Tommy Rydling stated the studio is aware players are still experiencing issues with the title.

"While millions of players are enjoying Battlefield 4, we are aware that some players are experiencing issues with the game," wrote Rydling. "While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving these is our #1 priority."

A full list of what can be expected from the patch update can be found here.
