Battlefield 4, the much popular first person shooter, or fps, game title created by DICE, has got an update patch for Microsoft Xbox One users.
The latest patch is said to resolve the game stability issues and other bugs which have cropped up since its launch.
Following is the list of fixes included in the patch, according to Gaming Bolt:
-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.
-Optimised 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.
The Sony PlayStation 4 users also received the update in the form of a patch. Details can be viewed here.
DICE Asks for Help from PS4 Battlefield 4 Players
DICE has asked for help from Battlefield 4 players to iron out the CE-34878-0 crash issues on Sony PlayStation 4.
A developer in Battlelog stated that there can be several reasons why this type of crash happens and that players can help them identify the issue by giving feedback on when the crash happened.
"You can help us to identify these individual issues by providing a few details in the crash report (we read all of them.) For example what game mode you were playing and on what map you crashed. Doing this will help us a lot to reproduce the issues and investigate fixes for them in upcoming patches," reports Videogamer.
The CE-34878-0 crash issue has been also linked to other game titles such as NBA 2K14, FIFA 14 and Need for Speed Rivals.
