Battlefield 4 developer EA DICE released a new patch for the PlayStation 4 version of the first-person shooter today, with the intent of fixing the crashes that numerous players have been suffering.

According to the studio, the patch "should further decrease the amount of crashes and increase the overall stability of the game." Here's the list of fixes:

  • Fixed common crashes that could occur when changing weapons or maps
  • Reduced the probability of a corrupted save file in the single-player campaign
  • Fixed a crash occurring when resuming the single-player campaign
  • Fixed a bug where accessing PlayStation Plus subscription resulted in a connection error
  • Improved performance when shooting at destroyed Levolution objects

"We will continue to increase stability going forward, stay tuned," reads a forum post from DICE. The studio said last week that it was working on patches for the PS4 version; there's no word yet on fixes for the Xbox One version, which is also susceptible to crashing even after DICE fixed some issues Nov. 23.

Earlier this week, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said in an open letter on the game's website that he wasn't proud of the problems that players are experiencing; as a make-good, DICE will offer double XP from Nov. 28 through Dec. 5.
