Battlefield 4’s launch in a couple of days will be accompanied by a day one patch that looks to improve and stabilize the game’s multiplayer experience, developer DICE announced today.
Those pre-loading their game can begin downloading the patch which weighs in at 119.21 MB. At the time of writing the patch was only available through the Xbox Live Marketplace but it’s expected to land on the PlayStation Network soon. Additionally DICE also confirmed a small title update of 6 MB which will automatically download when the game launches.
“Battlefield 4 update contains improvements to the multiplayer portions of the game,” Dice said in a statement. “We strongly advise you download it.”
According to the updated Premium schedule for Battlefield 4, the first DLC expansion titled China Rising will be available to download on December 3, 2013. This is going to be the first of a five-part DLC bundle; all of which will release first for Premium members and then become accessible to other users after two weeks. Furthermore, those who have subscribed to the Premium service will receive the DLC at no extra cost.
A timed-exclusive DLC has already been confirmed for the Xbox One in the form of ‘Second Assault’, where several Battlefield 3 maps will be ported over to the latest installment, including Operation Firestorm, Operation Metro, Caspian Border and Gulf of Oman.
Battlefield 4 will release on November 1, 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game, particularly on the PC, is looking beautiful and the initial reviews of the game are pretty good as well.
