New, 25 comments

Battlefield 4's most recent patches went live Dec. 20: a server-side update and a patch for the Windows PC version of the game, according to forum posts from developer EA DICE.

The PC patch addresses "three of the top crash issues" on the platform, said DICE, along with a persistent user-interface glitch. Here's the full list of fixes:

Dec 20 PC Game Update Notes
  • Fix for terrain flickering when using SLI/CrossFire setup
  • Fix for three of the top crash issues on the PC platform
  • Fix for case when soldier can die with 1 HP instead of 0
  • Fix for the issue where the revive UI could be permanently shown after accepting a revive

That was the second update of the week on PC; the first, released Dec. 16, fixed a host of problems such as "kill trading."

In addition, DICE put out an update Dec. 20 that brought the Battlefield 4 servers to version R17, fixing two crashes and a visual bug:

R17 Server Update Notes
  • Fix for two server crashes
  • Fix for a graphical bug that could occur when players accepted a revive within one second
  • Server performance optimizations

Last week also saw the filing of the first Battlefield 4-related lawsuit against publisher Electronic Arts. The class-action complaint, filed Dec. 17 in federal court, charges company officials with violations of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 related to their alleged foreknowledge (and failed disclosure) of problems with the game's development and to the ways in which those issues affected EA's stock price.
