Battlefield 4 problems on PC, making it ‘unplayable’

How are you getting on with Battlefield 4 at the moment? The game is finally out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, but surprisingly it appears that the latter platform may be the one with the most issues. We are hearing that there are countless Battlefield 4 PC problems emerging, resulting in crashing and games that continuously freeze at random points in the game.

Although some may say that this was going to be expected with a new Battlefield game launch, many may be feeling slightly disappointed that the frequent crashes are happening so soon after the Battlefield 4 beta finished up, when DICE were supposed to be making the game perfect for launch.

According to many angry gamers though, it hasn’t happened. You only need to visit this thread over at Reddit to see that over 200 gamers have been complaining about the same thing – they can’t play a single game without it crashing randomly or freezing up at any moment.

Here is one account of what kicked it all off over at Reddit:

“I can’t play this game anymore until they fix the random crashing and freezing. Every time I’m having a good game without fail the game will freeze and get stuck in an audio loop. Worst of all your stats aren’t even captured when the game crashes. My PC is relatively high end (i5, 8GB, GTX 570), drivers are all up to date and it will still crash at least every second match. I’m not interested in playing any more until they fix this game. The most frustrating thing is that these are all the same issues I experienced at the launch of BF3. How did lessons not get learned from the last game…”

If a crash whilst playing wasn’t bad enough, one of the most frustrating aspects of this is that stats and unlocks are not being counted for that game as well. So imagine when you perform well in a match, you play towards the end top of the leaderboard, then suddenly it crashes and you lose everything.

So far we haven’t seen specific action taken by DICE yet. We have a feeling they will have to address this in a patch though, as the complaints keep flooding in and it’s a bit of a crisis going into Battlefield 4’s first launch weekend.

How is your game at the moment, on any platform? Are you experiencing regular crashes as well whilst playing or not?
