Jan 14 PS3 update notes

  • Various fixes for improving general stability
  • Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
  • Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
  • Fixed a bug where players' rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated
  • Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
  • Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though he was just hurt)
  • Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
  • Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver's camera
  • Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
  • Stealth Jets now have more similar handling attributes to eachother. F35 & J-20 are slightly more agile, Su-50 is less agile

  • Fixed an occasional bug where players could experience intermittent engine sound dropouts when driving wheeled IFVs

In December, DICE announced that it was halting work on Battlefield 4 DLC development until it fixed a number of the game's major issues.

"We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game - it is absolutely our #1 priority," a spokesperson for publisher EA said at the time. "The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game."
