New title updates for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Battlefield 4 are rolling out across Europe today, DICE has confirmed.

The patches fix the 'one-hit kill' bug which saw bullets dealing double damage, and re-enables audio during PS4 video captures. They also improve stability, reducing the chances of crashes under certain conditions.

For unknown reasons, however, the PS3 patch is not currently available in North America. DICE says it is aiming to release the patch in the territory "as soon as possible".

PS4 December 5 Patch Notes

  • 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 crash that could occur when having a very large amounts of Friends
  • Enabled audio in PS4 video captures

PS3 December 5 Patch Notes
This patch is mainly focused at increasing game stability and contains a number of crash fixes. Accumulated, these fixes should help increase stability overall in the game.

  • Reduced the risk of a crash when transitioning from one multiplayer round to another
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when creating decals (bullet hit effects, etc.)
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when leaving vehicles
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when moving outside of the intended play area
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when firing the MBT and IFV gunner incendiary weapon
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when opening the Options menu
  • Fixed a problem with weapon accessories using up too much memory, which in turn could lead to crashing
  • Field Upgrades Reactivated - We have now fixed the Field Upgrades "Indirect Fire" and "Perimeter Defense" that were crashing the game. These Field Upgrades were previously deactivated as a workaround to this very frequent crash. With this fix in place we are now reactivating the Field Upgrades in question.
  • One-hit Kill Bug Fixed - 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.

EA said overnight that it had halted development on future DICE projects and Battlefield 4 expansion packs until all issues associated with Battlefield 4 had been ironed out.

A patch for the Xbox One version is still expected to launch later this week.
