DICE has issued a new cross-platform update for its competitive first-person shooter Battlefield 4, fixing a widely reported multiplayer glitch and introducing the Rent-A-Server program for console players.
Announced last month, Battlefield 4's Rent-A-Server program
gives console owners control over in-game parameters like friendly fire, team balance, map rotation, and regenerating health during multiplayer matches. Rent-A-Server prices range from $1.49 for one-day access to $59.99 for a 90-day rental. Currently, the service is temporarily unavailable on the Xbox One as DICE investigates post-launch issues.
This week's update also patches out a reported "Death Shield" glitch, which would involve killed players being enveloped with an invisible bullet-blocking shield in Battlefield 4's multiplayer component. A handy bug, but one that is now patched out with today's update.
