Battlefield 4 China Rising fixes incoming for PC, Xbox 360

Tuesday, 3rd December 2013 23:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Battlefield 4′s China Rising DLC is not without its problems, but DICE is aware of a couple of issues and is working on them.

In a statement issued to CVG, EA admitted to “an occasional hiccup, issue, glitch, or problem that could interrupt or prohibit your gameplay”.

In the case of players erroneously prompted to download the DLC again after installation – an issue affecting all platforms – the publisher suggested ensuring the latest patch is installed.

Unfortunately, no such workaround is available for PC players experiencing regular kicks during gameplay after installing China Rising.

“DICE have identified the issue and is implementing a solution to the problem. This fix will take some time to be fully completed, but players should be noticing normal gameplay behavior soon,” EA said.

Things sound even more grim for Xbox 360 players unable to join matches.

“We’re investigating this issue and will provide updates as quickly as possible,” EA said.

    Got to be honest, the BF4 launch has been quite a disaster. Which is a shame, since BF is the only good multiplayer FPS left these days.

    They better roll out patches, and fast.

    What is wrong with this game? Why one earth does it fall on it’s face at every turn.

    Came through the post for PS4 and I’m patiently waiting for the console itself but I just fear the game will be an unplayable mess.

    Well atleast the PS4 has a patch coming out this week.

    Basically the game crashes alot (brings you to the homescreen, so it doesn’t completely lock up your console fortunately), and the ambient sound cuts out just seconds into a match.

    My whole thing with this game is why did none of the reviews mention the bugs? Is the media that fucked up?

    Yeah the ambient sound bug is the most irritating I’ve found.

    Had a crash today when I was 2/3s through a conquest game, second on my team. Grrrr.

    not gonna lie: i had 5 crashes only today. i’m playing on ps4. can’t get into the game because of all the bugs and crashes. such a lazy mess. they dare to sell an obviously unfinished game (again) and even start to sell dlc before they even patch it? this is such a farce. come on, where’s the garbage can, let me throw some more money at it.

    a few maps are completely broken in the audio department, the one with that huge dam for example. the map design is pretty lame in general imo. i don’t need levelution. i just want a fun mp game that actually works. fuck this marketing crap pushed and repeated over and over again by games journalists.

    the fact that reviews didn’t mention these problems really proves again that the corporate videogame review exists :)

    i hope destiny will deliver. if so, all those other mediocore shooters can kiss my ass.

    maybe this sounded a bit harsh. you can still have some fun with this game. sometimes. but it’s a shame that it never gets close to it’s true potential that lies somewhere deep under this nasty bugged surface.
