The promised PS4 patch for Battlefield 4 has been released, addressing some stability and balancing issues, DICE has announced.

In order to receive the update you may need to restart the game.

Jan 14 PS4 Game Update Notes:

-Various fixes for improving general stability
-Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rouge Transmission and Operation Locker
-Fixed issue with player spawning under the map in Lancang Dam
-Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons
-Normalized repair rates across all vehicles. Vehicles with lower health points, like aircraft and transport vehicles, now repair more slowly than before
-Fixed a bug where the M1 Abrams Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver's camera
-Fix for friendly marker not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members
-Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)
-EU Players: Fixed bug where game wouldn't start when when the console was running in any of these languages: Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Brazilian Portuguese
-Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
-Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done

There's no word on when a game update will be released for Xbox One. The PS4 patch follows the release of a new PC update.

I've played it through four times mate. It's not just isolated to switching game type in my exp. I played it through on hard (after already completing it on normal just after release), then did the other two endings on easy, went to bed and then when I started it the next day to get the rest of the collectables, it was goosed :-/

That was after the fix before Xmas too. Even that as bloody hard-work, I counted seven crashes during the last play-through . To be honest, I've had such a bad exp with BF4, I struggle to even look at the box. I was going to make it my first platinum, but I can't bring myself to play the whole thing through again.

What makes it worse, is it feels like half the game BF3 was.

Or maybe playing single player then turning it off before starting the campaign is a workaround?? I've been through the campaign twice and I'm on my 3rd trip to get some final trophies some which can only be obtained playing through 3 times. I've had zero issues with my save file this way.

The corrupt file happens when you go from single player to multiplayer, and then come back to single player. Just play single player until you beat it, then do multiplayer. You can beat the game in about 8 hours and then never have to worry about it again.
