'Battlefield 4' Getting Multiplatform Patch This Month

DICE has announced that it will be releasing a multiplatform patch for Battlefield 4 later this month.

Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling wrote on the game's official blog that the studio is aware that players are still suffering from bugs and other problems.

"While millions of players are enjoying Battlefield 4, we are aware that some players are experiencing issues with the game," Rydling wrote. "While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving these is our #1 priority."

Battlefield 4 has been plagued with a number of issues across all platforms since its release, including incorrect matchmaking, one-shot kills, rubberbanding for players with stable Internet connections, and a host of other glitches. DICE released a patch to fix the one-shot kill bug for the PS4 and PC versions of the game in December, but the problems didn't end there.

EA was hit with two lawsuits claiming that the publisher knowingly released false or misleading statements about the quality of the game. Securities law firm Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd filed a lawsuit alleging that EA violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by releasing false statements in order to drive up sales, even though executives knew the game was buggy and incomplete.

Maryland-based law firm Brower Piven filed a similar lawsuit seeking investors who suffered a net loss from EA stock purchased on or after July 24. The suit alleged that EA failed to disclose that Battlefield 4 was "riddled with bugs, connectivity issues, and several other problems."

Last week, hacker group DERP took responsibility for a DDoS attack that took down the game's servers on January 2.

"We've directed the Gaben Laser Beam™ @ the EA login servers," the group tweeted. "Origin #offline"

The group previously took responsibility for taking down League of Legends, Reddit, EA.com, and other servers.
