Good time to not be a Battlefield Premium subscriber, right?
Battlefield 4: China Rising is now available for Battlefield Premium subscribers, with a retail release on December 17th, but it’s apparently already rife with problems. EA has admitted that there may be “an occasional hiccup, issue, glitch, or problem that could interrupt or prohibit your gameplay”. Some players have even been prompted to download the DLC again and have been advised to have the latest patch installed as a work-around.
PC players meanwhile are being kicked from multiplayer matches, to which EA stated that, “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.”
As for Xbox 360 players who can’t join matches at all? “We’re investigating this issue and will provide updates as quickly as possible.”
Thus far, Battlefield 4 has had a problematic multiplayer release with several errors arising on all platforms, most especially for the PS4 (with the major issues being addressed in a recent patch).
