The latest server-side update for Battlefield 4 is targeted at persistent crashing issues on all platforms as well as other issues on the Windows PC version of the game, developer EA DICE announced today on the game's forums.

The update "should fix some of the most common server crashes across all platforms," according to the studio. Here are the PC issues that the patch addresses:

  • The "admin.say" command should now work properly
  • The "vars.preset" command should now work better in conjunction with other vars settings (It is now easier for server admins to set a server preset)
  • Fixed a bug in the queue system regarding GUID
  • Fixed various minor bugs

Earlier this week, DICE identified numerous known issues with Battlefield 4, as well as the fixes it had released. Publisher Electronic Arts released the game on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last week; it will be available Nov. 12 on PlayStation 4 and Nov. 19 on Xbox One.
