As part of an ongoing attempt to fix its game as much as possible before pumping out any more DLC, DICE has launched another update for Battlefield 4 on PC, as well as updates for PS3 and PS4 intended to improve general stability.

On top of the usual tweaks and bug fixes, such as one where players would find themselves spawning under the map when deploying on Lancang Dam, this latest update also includes several modifications for jets -- these range from an increase in damage to a few changes in their handling attributes.

PC Update Notes

  • Various fixes for improving general stability
  • Fixed a memory leak issue occurring after level shutdowns, which could result in a out-of-memory crash in longer play sessions
  • Additional fix for the “sound loop” deadlock when running High/Ultra graphics settings
  • Added a warning for using Legacy AMD drivers that were out of date
  • Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
  • Fixed a bug where players’ rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated
  • Fix for Asian users unable to start Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 on Windows 8.1
  • Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
  • Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)
  • Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fixed a bug where a M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera
  • Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons.
  • Stealth Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other. F35 & J-20 are slightly more agile, Su-50 is less agile.
  • Attack Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other, and all 3 are now slightly less agile than earlier
  • Fixed camera glitch when switching weapons while moving in crouch
  • Fixed an occasional bug where players could experience intermittent engine sound dropouts when driving wheeled IFVs
  • Fix for player spawning under the map when deploying on Lancang Dam
  • Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rogue Transmission and Operation Locker

The PS3 and PS4 versions of Battlefield 4 have also received updates.

PS3 Update Notes

  • Various fixes for improving general stability
  • Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
  • Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
  • Fixed a bug where players’ rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated
  • Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
  • Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though he was just hurt)
  • Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera
  • Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
  • Stealth Jets now have more similar handling attributes to eachother. F35 & J-20 are slightly more agile, Su-50 is less agile
  • Attack Jets now have more similar handling attributes to each other, and all 3 are now slightly less agile than earlier
  • Fixed camera glitch when switching weapons while moving in crouch
  • Fixed an occasional bug where players could experience intermittent engine sound dropouts when driving wheeled IFVs
  • China Rising: Fixed animation glitch for motorbike passengers ocuring when aiming
  • Fix for first and third person soldier animations being out of sync while doing transition changes. This could potentially make the player get hit while in cover behind a wall or other obstacle

 PS4 Update Notes

  • Various fixes for improving general stability
  • Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rogue Transmission and Operation Locker
  • Fixed issue with player spawning under the map in Lancang Dam
  • Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
  • Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
  • Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera
  • Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)
  • EU Players: Fixed bug where game wouldn’t start when when the console was running in any of these languages: Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Brazilian Portuguese
  • Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
  • Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
