Late last night there was an update that pushed out for Battlefield 4. The update weighs in at 1,054.76 MBs, or just over 1GB. That is a fairly substantial update in terms of size. News of the update was posted on the games Battlelog last night with very little information other than Multiplayer and Battlelog would be down for about an hour.
“WE ARE PERFORMING A PATCH RELEASE MAINTENANCE FOR PC ON JULY 8TH AT 1AM PT / 10:00 CEST. MULTIPLAYER AND BATTLELOG WILL BE UNAVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. EXPECTED DOWNTIME IS 1 HOUR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.”
There hasn’t been an official change-log released as of this posting, but we will keep an eye for when it gets shared. Users on the Battlefield forums have noticed more skins/camo and some items being removed. We assume that this update is a pre-cursor to the pending Dragon’s Teeth update that is scheduled for release this summer. A previously pushed, and then retracted, tweet suggested a July 15th release. We are willing to bet that this “patch” release incorporates a lot of the back-end elements for the upcoming DLC. If you need a little convincing of this, after the update my personal Battlelog said I just started playing the Dragon’s Teeth DLC, which is obviously not the case.
There are likely a number of fixes coming over from the Community Test Environment as well. Like more Netcode fixes and Rush Tweaks possibly. Although some of those have only been implemented a week ago to the CTE. I will keep checking in on the Battlelog throughout the day and update this post when they share the release notes.
Update: EA has finally pushed out the change-log for the update. It actually spanned PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. All of them are slightly different in terms of bug fixes, but one aspects remained the same. The update included several bug fixes for the Commander app. It also introduced VOIP for Xbox One players and their Commander app playing counterparts. Looking through each consoles changelog is pretty daunting. They are pretty long. Rather than waste your time with a lot of copy/paste, below are the direct links to each systems changelog page.
