Battlefield 1

Just a week after DICE and EA found there were some rather significant issues with Battlefield 1‘s PS4 Pro version, it appears the developers have released a patch that has fixed those issues. The new patch brings a bit of new content to the game, instead of just being a fix for existing problems. The new update brings a new map, and a spectator mode along with the numerous fixes.

Those fixes include reversing the problems that were caused by update 1.04. That update was causing a decline in image quality that PS4 Pro users were quite quick to notice. The developers have said in order to reverse the problems they had managed to “tweak dynamic resolution min cap scaling to improve GPU performance over loss of resolution.”

While DICE didn’t specifically mention it, another fix brought with the patch was the fact that the the quit button, which had been rendered useless for some players, has been made one that is working again. You can check the full patch notes below:
