A new patch claiming to fix the netcode in Battlefield 4 has today been released on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, with the Xbox One and PS4 versions coming next week. Check out the patch video embedded above.
According to Polygon, the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the patch will include a feature that developer EA DICE calls “High Frequency Bubble,” which uses a player’s position to bring more frequent server updates.
“Within a certain radius of the player, we add the possibility to update the clients at a higher rate from the server,” the post explains. “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.”
Battlefield 4 has had an extremely rough time, so hopefully this new patch makes thing more playable for everyone. It’s still shocking that something like this has taken over 8 months to fix. To see more details about the patch go over to the official announcement page over at the Battleblog.
