Battlefield 4 updates released on PC and Xbox One

First iteration of pre-game lobby feature 'Platoons' also rolling out on Thursday

DICE has released new Battlefield 4 patches for the PC and Xbox One versions of the game.

Among other fixes, the PC title update addresses the so called 'sound loop crash' that caused the game to freeze. The Xbox One patch addresses spawning, audio and physics issues, among others (full patch notes for both platforms below).

Additionally, DICE plans to roll out the first iteration of the pre-game lobby feature 'Platoons' on Thursday, February 27. Unlike many of the most popular modern multiplayer shooters which feature pre-game lobby systems, Battlefield 4 offers no way for players to group up in-game before joining matches, making it difficult for friends to stick together. Platoons is designed to address this issue.
