We have a quick heads-up for all Battlefield 4 players. A new PC update update is now live for the game and should be rolling out for all territories as we speak. The pleasing thing to note is that the update is a fairly large one, and we have the full Battlefield 4 PC update patch notes for you to read through.
DICE had been teasing this update that they had specifically been working on for PC players and we’re glad to see that it is now live.
The big change for us is that they have now “normalized” repair rates across all vehicles, adding a level playing field for those that found this to be a problem. We also see that stealth jets have been tweaked a little bit as well – notably the F35 & J-20, as well as the Su-50.
Tell us if you have the update yet – as we say it is live now, but still may take a little while to reach your area. We’ve included the full patch notes for you below.
Read through and let us know if you are still having problems with the PC version.
