New Battlefield 4 patch released, Second Assault lands on Feb 18
As expected, DICE has released another Battlefield 4 patch for the PC platform. The new patch includes a dozen or so fixes and improvements, and it appears the patch also has a fix for the sound issue that was introduced with the previous patch.
The new Battlefield 4 patch also has some fixes for the new Mantle update, which is an API update for AMD graphics cards. The patch is available for download now and weighs in at 400 MB. You can find the full patch release notes below:
-General stability improvements
-Fix for an issue where spawning into, or switching to, a gunner seat in an IFV/MBT sometimes could cause the game to crash
-Fix for missing sound in Team/Squad Deathmatch
-Fix for an issue in the Defuse game mode, where a bomb carrier would be permanently spotted
-Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health, while the enemy was clearly alive
-Fix for an invisible wall that was incorrectly present in one of the fallen concrete pipes on Zavod 311
-Fix for an issue where bullet impact sounds weren’t properly matching the actual number of impacts
-Fix for an issue where the “Draw” message would not display on-screen once a Conquest round ended with both teams having the same amount of tickets
-Fix for an issue where long IDs wouldn’t scroll on dog tags
-Fix for missing grass physics in terrain
In addition to the patch, DICE also confirmed that the upcoming Battlefield 4 Second Assault DLC will launch on February 18th for Premium members, and two weeks later for everyone else.
