DICE has provided fresh details on a number of upcoming Battlefield 4 updates.
An Xbox One update focusing on stability and performance will include a fix for the so-called one-hit kill bug, which can be seen in action in the video below.
The bug will also be addressed in an upcoming PC patch, which is detailed below. Both updates are planned for release during the week commencing next Monday, December 2.
PC patch notes
- Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
- Fixed the audio bug where audio sometimes randomly dropped out while playing on certain multiplayer maps (typically Golmud Railway and Hainan Resort)
- Fixed the "one-hit kill bug" where occasionally damage from a single bullet was applied multiple times
- Fixed a common crash that would occur when exiting from the Single Player Campaign to Main Menu
- Tweaked the network and computer performance screen to show proper values. Players can now test their computer and network connection and get recommendations if they need to adjust something to improve their gameplay experience.
DICE is currently hosting a Battlefield 4 double XP week as compensation for the shooter's troubled launch.
In CVG's Battlefield 4 review we said the game is a "bombastic start to the next generation of shooters, especially in multiplayer".
