Battlefield 4 PC hit with DDoS attack, PS4 crash fix on the way
DICE confirms PC version of military FPS the target of a distributed denial-of-service attack; update aiming to fix PS4 crashes coming next week.
The PC version of Battlefield 4 was the target of a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack this weekend, leaving the game unplayable for some, Swedish developer DICE has confirmed on the game's forums.
"We are being targeted by a DDOS, but working on fixing it asap," Battlefield producer Ali Hassoon said Saturday evening. "I'm sorry somebody is ruining your and my day. Rest assured we are doing our best to mitigate the situation though."
The PC version of Battlefield 4 is not the only iteration of the game that is experiencing issues. In a Battlelog update today, DICE laid out plans for how it hopes to improve the game across multiple platforms.
First, DICE said it plans to release an update next week for the PS4 version of Battlefield 4 that will address frequent crashes on the platform. Specific details will be shared later. On Xbox 360, DICE said a general update is currently undergoing final testing and will be released soon.
Lastly, a new title update for the PC version of Battlefield 4 aims to fix a number of remaining issues. "We will have more details on the contents of this update and a rough timing estimate at a later date," DICE said.
Battlefield 4 launched on October 29 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, before coming to PS4 last week as a launch title. The military FPS will be released this Friday, November 22, for Xbox One.
