DICE has rolled out a new title update for the PC version of Battlefield 4, which aims to fix "one of the most frequently occurring client crashes" and reduce the risk of players experiencing corrupted save files.

In an update on the game's official forums, DICE detailed the changes found in the patch, which is also said to fix collision detection and other miscellaneous bugs.

Battlefield 4 multiplayer will also be unavailable for "a few hours" today as the developer rolls out the patch.

Dec 9 PC Game Update Notes

  • Fixed one of the most frequently occurring client crashes 
  • Fixed broken collision on containers with open doors. The bug previously made grenades bounce back even though the doors were open. 
  • Fixed a bug in Defuse mode where defenders could win the round by killing all the attackers without disarming the bomb, if the bomb was disarmed in the previous round. 
  • Miscellaneous stability fixes further reducing the number of client crashes 
  • Fixed side gunner jitter when aiming in attack boats & transport helicopters 
  • Fixed some instances of frame rate drops when shooting at large Levolution objects after they have been destroyed (like the radar dish on Rogue Transmission) 
  • Fixed broken aiming for passengers on the China Rising dirt bike 
  • Fixed a bug where the sound when capturing a flag was not playing correctly 
  • Removed a bug that would double save during MP round transition and SP level transition. This fix will reduce the occurrence of corrupted save files.

A title update for the Xbox One version had previously been due to go live last week. DICE has yet to explain the reasons for its delay.
