Battlefield 4 Update Causes More Problems Than It Fixes

Battlefield 4 leaves many loyal PC players questioning EA.

The most recent Battlefield 4 update has brought PC players major headache.

Last Thursday, DICE released an update for the PC version of Battlefield 4. But server update R20 seems to be causing more issues than it is fixing. According to a reddit thread, a few of the bugs include:

  • Players unable to spawn after they die.
  • Not showing scores on kills & capping flags.
  • Player crash to desktop when this happens.

Players who bought Battlefield 4 Premium PC for $120 are outraged. According to the same Reddit thread, many players have tried to get their money refunded but to no avail. Many have began to question whether they will buy upcoming EA games like Titanfall, Mirror's Edge 2, and Star Wars: Battlefront.

An R21 update has yet to be released, but should be expected soon. No comments have been made by EA or DICE. Hopefully, they can redeem themselves in the next update. Would you buy future PC EA games with all of the issues Battlefield 4 is having? Tell us in the comments!
