A recurring problem that PC players of Battlefield 4 have been suffering from since the game’s launch has been the frequent crashes and freezes that happen when you’re playing. DICE seems to have come to the rescue though, as the Upcoming Battlefield 4 PC Patch should fix most of them.
You can head over to the Battlelog forums to check out the announcement, including some upcoming features such as the Live Scoreboard:
The PC client patch for Battlefield 4 will go live in the near future and fixes a number of different issues you have helped us to identify, including a number of the most common crashes and freezes. We will get back to you with a full fix list and a specific date for this update soon.
We will introduce Live Scoreboards in the PC server browser on Battlelog in the upcoming days. It will let you see the current status in the ongoing round on a server before you join, such as the number of remaining targets in a round of Obliteration. We will be able to give you specific date on this feature soon.
There are a couple of other announcements on the post as well. Apparently there’s a planned maintenance going on right now (which will probably be over by the time you read this). It’s being done in preparation of the upcoming client patches.
Battlefield 4 is developed by DICE and published by EA Games. It’s a sequel to 2011’s Battlefield 3 and the latest in a very long running franchise of videogames. Its story takes place approximately six years after the events of BF3, with tensions running high between the US and Russia, and China looking to enter the mix.
