Battlefield 4 multiplatform patch rolling out this month

DICE says it is currently finalizing latest game update with the hope of releasing it this month.

Some of the headaches you may be experiencing in Battlefield 4 could come to an end as soon as later this month. DICE said today on its support site that it will release a new multiplatform update for the military shooter sometime in the next few weeks.

The Swedish developer is currently finalizing this patch, but it's not clear what specific problems with Battlefield 4 it addresses. DICE is currently investigating a range of problems that continue to beset Battlefield 4.

As detailed through the Battlefield 4 Top Issues Tracker, one problem currently affecting all platforms relates to a "desynchronized" game world where objects have different states for different players. Other problems affecting all platforms include rubber-banding, frame rate drops, and some instances of players not taking damage even when they're shot.

Battlefield 4 launched last fall and, despite numerous patches and updates, has suffered through numerous issues since release, though the most pronounced problems appear to be affecting the PlayStation 4 version. Publisher Electronic Arts has found itself in the crosshairs of a class-action lawsuit as a result of these issues.

Then you just play domination, or just don't have enough playing time to even give you're opinion. The game is really fucked up

been playing on 360 don't really notice much issues either, except some days its really there, freezes, graphic glitches, random crashes, or I don't get my points after the match sometimes, but other days it works perfect, well near perfect at that. I was going to pick up for PC but they were sold out, so I just went with 360. Maybe in a few months when I get prem ill just upgrade to PC

Multiplatform update... Does that mean that we'll have another cross-platform incident like Shadowrun?

Mayb it'll actually be playable now, but really DICE, shouldn't you be focusing on something more important like Star Wars Battlefront? That game better not suck and I really hope you include splitscreen, would feel classic.....

I paid 60 bucks for BETAfield 4 - it may be better than COD but that's like comparing cat turd to dog turd - NEVER again shelling out for anything from EA

I c bout time, I've been saying that for the longest why keep coming out with new stuff and not focus on the actual problems, once the game if 95% fixed it will be the greatest thing ever... Thanks mate.

No, they announced they would not release any further project until the game is completely fixed, meaning good netcode and not one shot killing

Yeah well in this case, 3 weapons require you to do SP.

It's hit-or-miss for me. Some days it's fine, others it's not. I really have no idea what they f'd up on the servers, but it's something pretty major. Seeing as they've done this quite a few times before (previous games) I really don't understand why this is soooo broken. Oh well. I gave up COD a few iterations ago, I think this will be next.

I only spent 750 on my PC and my specs slaughter the PS4 and Xboner combined. I can run just about anything.
