Battlefield 4 Xbox One Patch Begins Rolling Out Now

View author's profile

DICE is rolling out the latest patch for Battlefield 4 on Xbox One, in an ongoing effort to get the game up to scratch, fixed, shipshape and Bristol fashion. As a result, you may find that getting into the game's multiplayer might be troublesome while DICE tinkers with the game.

"We will be rolling out the Xbox One game update today, starting 10AM UTC / 2AM PDT. Players may experience some downtime as we upgrade our services. Expect patch notes to become available soon," DICE states in a post on its Battlelog site.

The patch had been delayed, but is going live on Xbox One now. It's focus is on improving stability, fixing the one-hit kill bug and Commander EMP blur effect. Full patch notes are to be released soon.

I've not seen them once acknowledge the issue with campaign data getting erased. This is horrendous.

@1 Although I completely agree with you about the singleplayer issues. Look at it from their prospective. Battlefield is a multiplayer game and most people care more about that.

Not exactly now is it. The title is a bit misleading. The update will be rolled out at the times they posted which isn't for another 3 hours 35 minutes.

I still haven't finished the Single Player because the campaign data has erased twice. Hopefully it will be fixed soon cause I would like to finish the game.

I'm getting the 360 version as a Christmas present.

This must be how starving Africans feel.

@1 I am fairly sure they did, it was in some patch notes I read a week or so ago it said something abut fixing an issue where a double save would erase your save game.

It's interesting that the PS4 campaign progress loss is on their top issues tracker but the same issue on Xbox One (and 360) is not mentioned.

Glad I only got as far as mission four.
Only three to play through again before I can find out what happens next...

Isnt that the reason they are updating this game? I couldn't get on last night or pretty much all day yesterday. At least DICE is working hard on the problem so we don't have another GTA 5 situation.

The patch notes state that a fix for single player save loss is part of this update.

So can you all just STFU about it now given that you're completely wrong in saying they're ignoring it and that it's not in this update?

Sick of hearing about it. I don't even know how you manage to have the problem. I played through it twice already including a bunch of mission replays with zero sign of issues.

I knew it wouldn't take long.

So many impatient people who play video games now Adays, everyone expects it to just automatically be 100% flawless, well sorry kids it's about to be 2014 and that still does not exists in today's reality.

Plus if one game isn't working wanna know what I do? I play a different game.

While I appreciate that the first patch is incoming, I do hope that the majority of the game is at least stable enough to play then I will be satisfied for now.

That being said it should never of been released in this state in the first place and the damage has already been done.

@1 If you look at the patch notes they have fixed and they did acknowledge the single player corruption some time ago!!

Dec 13 Xbox One Game Update Notes
-Fixed three common crashes that could occur during map transitions
-Fixed a common crash that could occur when using the in-game Battlelog in the "end of round" screen
-Fixed two crashes related to destroying vehicles
-Fixed a crash that could occur when the player lost connection to a server
-Fixed a crash that could occur when using the scoreboard
-Fixed a crash that could occur when players were using the voice chat
-Optimized performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects on some levels
-Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
-Fixed the "one-hit kill" bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed
-Fixed a memory leak that could lead to crashes at certain points
-Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign
-Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds
-Fixed an issue with going online after resuming your Xbox One from suspended mode
-Fixed some issues with the handling of Xbox One parties
-Made the icons used to signal voice chat status more reliable

@23 your viewpoint should be accurate, we should expect it to work 100%. We don't pay money for things to not work

@14 you are the problem. Do you pay for your internet and just accept it if it doesn't work properly? No. Companies see that idiots(which is what they are) accept half finished games and keep churning out bug filled shit

So far I haven't had any crashes, which is great. But I still can't seem to play the gametypes I want. I guess that's where the extra $50.00 for premium comes in.

If this is the way games are going to be from now on then they should just sell the games for $100.00 and skip the extra charges.

#14 - That's great and all, but if I spend $60.00 on a brand new game, it should work. Why even bother buying it when it comes out if it's always going to have dashboard crashes and glitches when in 6 months time I can buy it for $40.00 and have a game that actually works.

But yeah, you're right. I can just play other games, which is what I normally do because I always get burned when I buy games on release.

To any1 on the fence with this game, don't buy it. Ur money would be better placed pre-ordering destiny & then paying it off in full. U would get ur moneys worth faster than if u throw it away with battle field, unplayable piece of shit.

"@1 If you look at the patch notes they have fixed and they did acknowledge the single player corruption some time ago!!"

It just says "further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file." That doesn't really qualify as a fix so much as an acknowledgment that it's still broken and they likely have no clue how to really fix it.

Some people crack me up, how can people really sit there and say "just wait til they fix the game you impatient fucks" when I payed 110$ for a product I expect to work right out of the box. I'm not gonna sit here and let these companies get away with this bullshit, You like half broken shit? let me sell you about a dozen broken things that are sitting in my house. When you receive it and you notice its broken i'll just send you a message that says "it will be fixed soon just give me time" and see how you like it.

PS this game is good when it works.

I honestly could care less about the single player aspect of Battlefield. I don't think I've beaten a campaign since Bad Company 2. Multiplayer is where it's at! Fix the multiplayer and I'm good!

This is what happens when devs are pressured to bring out a game every year instead of taking their time. Can't believe how frustrated I am at the BF4 launch. My single player data was fine until earlier today after downloading the "patch" and now it acts like I haven't played the game.

I know they're working hard at it but they need to think of something to give back to the gamers in addition to just fixing the game because the launch shouldn't have been this bad. I will happily wait longer for the next BF game if they take longer to ensure it runs smoothly at launch.

@47 I agree. I think that they hit the right spot in BC2 when they released it in March. Its enough time to fix all the bugs and it's around the time that people start getting tired of COD. That maximizes profits even more. I know that EA is a business, so they want money, but maybe they should start thinking with their brains. ..

Now I understand the crashing bug I'm having I've found it okay. Basically if you press a to deploy more than once it crashes 90% of the time.

So as long as I'm careful to only press A once to deploy it's fine.

But no idea how they got past quality control. It's the most obvious reproduceable and easy to explain severe fatal bug I've ever seen make it into a live product.

I played this on my buddies PS4 and I gotta tell you, I didn't know how much the fanboys were lying when they said it was amazing. I could barely get into a game and every time I tried to join our friends game it put us against him. This game is bad. Bad Company bad.
