DICE has sent word that their destruction-heavy FPS Battlefield 4 has now been updated with the first DLC pack, China Rising, adding in four new maps for players to go and fight it out for victory.
The China Rising pack includes four maps: Silk Road, with giant sand dunes; Altai Range, land and air battle for control of the mountains; Guilin Peaks, focused on close-quarter fighting in caves; and Dragon Pass, a reimagining of Battlefield 2's Dragon Valley map. The pack will be available for non-Premium members on December 17 for $14.99.
Sadly the news isn't all that positive, with DICE revealing earlier this morning that PlayStation 4 users anticipating the stability patch promised last week has now been delayed. "The PS4 game update that was originally meant to go live Dec 3 is undergoing some additional testing and will be rescheduled for a later date." DICE says. "We will get back with final details as soon as we have verification that the update is good to go."
The delayed patch is designed to eliminate a few problems, including unintended one-hit kills, missing sound on video capture, and crashes due to having too many friends. No further news has been provided on any other fixes in the works though hopefully we'll see more on the situation soon.
Sadly since its launch back at the end of October, Battlefield 4 has still been experiencing a number of issues plaguing all platforms, including some major server issues for PC. DICE are aware of the issues though so hopefully we'll see some more patches to fix the ongoing concerns sooner rather than later.
