Battlefield 4 has suffered more than its share of problems. The most common are the “netcode issues,” which include glitches, latency compensation problems, and more. Today, DICE released an update explaining their steps to improve the situation.

They have already improved the latency compensation and fixed some of the rubber banding issues. They also fixed a glitch where the game’s kill card displayed an active opponent as having 0 health, collision mistakes where it was impossible to shoot past a broken object, PC bugs with vanishing crosshairs and hit markers, and inconsistent bullet impact sounds. They also have added an icon to notify players when they are killed by a headshot, to reduce confusion over whether one-hit kills are correct, or produced by glitches.

They are still working on the remaining rubber banding issue, glitches with the kill camera and other features being out of sync with the player’s death, a bug where weapons stop inflicting damage, a physics glitch in which sprinting could lead to sudden death, and several other issues. They are also considering increasing how often the game’s world is updated on certain servers.

Finally, they added two new icons to Battlefield 4 to make problems clearer. One is a clock icon that will appear on your screen when you are experiencing network lag. The other is an icon made up of four squares, which means your connection is losing information between you and the server. Both of these should help you understand what might be causing problems in your game session.

You can read DICE’s full post to learn all the details of their fixes and planned fixes. It’s sad that Battlefield 4 has had so many problems, and we hope they can straighten it out soon.

Star Wars: Battlefront not expected until Summer 2015

Star Wars: Battlefront, the highly anticipated Star Wars-themed shooter currently being developed by DICE (the guys behind Battlefield) is set for a release date on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on a date far, far away we’re afraid.

Electronic Arts, on publishing duties for Battlefront, held it’s annual meeting recently and CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the game is looking like it will be released in summer 2015. He said that Battlefront “will most likely come out around the same time that the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of ’15.” A new Star Wars movie, Star Wars Episode VII, is currently being made and due to be released in 2015.

EA had previously said that April 2014 would be the earliest possible time that the game would arrive.

We got a look at Star Wars: Battlefront at E3 earlier this year and yes, it’s looking awesome (see for yourself in the official preview video below). There’s gonna be a bit of a wait though…
