DICE Looking To Fix Battlefield 4 Bugs
Remember the days when a game released, it worked just fine and that was that? Nowadays we have games that are rushed to meet a release window and often not completely stable from a technical standpoint. Day-one patches have become common place, we accept it. Even post-launch patches within a week of release are a thing we’ve become complacent to.
Batman: Arkham Origins was riddled with numerous technical issues, some potentially game-breaking. A patch was released and just compounded the troubles for some people. Battlefield 4 released on Friday and again, we have a game plagued by numerous technical issues.

These are serious issues. Game crashes, freezing, multiplayer progress being lost, audio issues and corrupt singleplayer save files. DICE is working to address these issues in a patch fro both console and PC versions. The studio has also urged users to continue providing feedback.
“We are hearing your feedback regarding gameplay balance and other tweaks to classes and weapons, and are actively discussing these with the designers,” a spokesperson for the studio wrote.
Things such as patches should not be making headlines and we were discussing this briefly last night when Caveshen put it quite succinctly, “If your game’s patch is making headlines, you done fucked up.”
