First community-tested Battlefield 4 patch rolls out
4 June 2014, 4:39 pm

A month ago, EA and DICE launched something called a Community Test Environment for Battlefield 3. Here "passionate fans" could help DICE test new features and give feedback.

The fruits of that labour have now begun to appear, as a netcode patch - making the game work better online - has rolled out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It's coming later this week on PS4 and Xbox One.

This is the first update developed in conjunction with the Community Test Environment, and would have been "difficult to pull off" (ooh err) without you.

Battlefield 4 High Frequency Update Comes to PS4 This Week
3 June 2014, 11:00 pm

Battlefield-4-review-ocean

While the PS3 version of Battlefield 4 received a general update today, the PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 is going to be receiving a big update this week in the form of the High Frequency Update.

DICE did their best to explain exactly what this is:

For the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms, we are adding something we nicknamed the “High Frequency Bubble”.

Within a certain radius of the player, we add the possibility to update the clients at a higher rate from the server. What this essentially means is that the server will update the client on what is happening more often than before. This normally results in a smoother, more “correct” player experience.

The High Frequency Update is by default turned OFF in this release. You will have to enable this setting to take advantage of the improved networking. To support players with a limited bandwidth connection, we support three different levels: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. Most players with a connection faster than 1Mbit should be fine using the HIGH setting. If you experience any issues, lower or turn off the setting completely.
The High Frequency Update will be brought to all 48 -servers and some 64-player servers right away. Provided the performance is good, all servers will support the update 24 hours after rollout and testing.

Here’s a video showing you how Battlefield 4 ran before, and how Battlefield 4 will run now:

See below for all the notes detailing this week’s PS4 Battlefield 4 update:

  • Improved/reduced explosion induced camera shake
  • Rental server bug fixes
  • Character collision improvements
  • Fix to reduce object damage mismatch between client/server.
  • Fix explosion packs not being able to be shot sometimes
  • Improvements for client side packet loss
  • Added controller option to swap functionality of the bumper and trigger buttons
  • Physics optimization for Naval Strike Wave Breaker rocks
  • Carrier – Invisible walls stopping bullets fix
  • High Frequency Network update: Added High frequency “bubble” updating player movement, stance, rotation, damage and projectiles at a separate rate on foot and in vehicles; Added option to control client side update rate setting
Of course, Battlefield 4 isn’t fully fixed on all platforms, with DICE promising, “We are still hard at work with additional improvements and tweaks to better our network experience that did not make this release.”

PS4 Firmware Update 1.71 Rolls Out Today, Brings “Software Stability to Some Features”
3 June 2014, 11:26 am

playstationcameraps4dualshock4

Just a few hours ago, Sony’s official PlayStation Twitter announced that firmware update “1.71″ for the PlayStation 4 will be coming out “soon.” As it turns out, soon means today.

PS4 system software update 1.71 coming soon, will improve software stability of some features. Reminder: Activate your automatic download

— PlayStation (@PlayStation) June 3, 2014


Right this moment, the update has been rolled out and is at a manageable 194MB, which should take most people no more than a few minutes to download and install. Of course, if you leave your PS4 on standby mode, then the update should be downloaded and installed by the time you wake up or when you turn on your console.

For PS4 firmware update 1.71, sadly, there are no gamer-requested features that came along for the ride, as the update is to “software stability of some features,” which most PlayStation gamers should be familiar with by now.

Let’s hope that the next firmware update brings with it some features that fans have been requesting since the console’s release. I for one would certainly welcome a way to pause something the PS4 is downloading, or maybe even a little notification when my PSN friends hop online.

What would you want the next firmware update to bring if you were given a chance to choose?

Battlefield: Hardline Confirmed by EA; First Gameplay Video Leaks (Update)
28 May 2014, 3:45 pm

battlefieldhardlineimage2

Update: Visceral’s Steve Papoutsis commented on the recent Battlefield: Hardline gameplay leak, revealing that the footage is six months old:

So yeah, that happened. Not how we wanted to unveil Hardline, but all good. Didn’t want to wait til E3 anyway, so let’s talk about it…

Video that’s out there was for an internal meeting. It’s 6 months old now and team has been cranking since then. See the real deal at E3. Excited to see so much buzz for the old footage. Love it. Can’t wait to show you how much further the team has taken things.

We’re pouring everything we’ve got into this & stoked to share details on June 9 – maybe even a little more before then if you want it.
Original Story: Shortly after the Battlefield: Hardline leak was discovered, Steve Papoutsis, GM at Visceral Games and Executive Producer on Hardline, took to the Battlefield Blog to confirm that the game is happening, with more details arriving during EA’s E3 2014 press conference on June 9th.

We do know a few things about Hardline now, including how “this is a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love – the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals.” As well, Papoutsis teased that Hardline will introduce “new twists and turns” to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer, while also bringing Visceral’s strengths to single player.

Papoutsis then revealed how Hardline came to be:

Several years ago, I was at an internal EA meeting in Barcelona with creative leaders from across the company. It was here I met Karl Magnus Troedsson, the GM of DICE, for the first time, and we immediately began talking about games. I’ve always loved Battlefield and KM was a huge fan of Dead Space, so we started talking about different ways we could work together, different ways we could take Battlefield and action games in a new direction. And from that point, the project that would become Battlefield Hardline was born.
There’s a very good chance the video will be taken down at some point (try this link or this link if it is), but for now, here’s the first leaked trailer for Hardline:
