New Battlefield 4 Miracle Cure Appears
Battlefield 4 has been limping along for a fairly long while now and there have been many attempts to make it work as it should. Now DICE, the game’s developer, is about to introduce new “netcode” that may fix the many issues that players have been experiencing.
For the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms, we are adding something we nicknamed the “High Frequency Bubble”. Within a certain radius of the player, we add the possibility to update the clients at a higher rate from the server. What this essentially means is that the server will update the client on what is happening more often than before. This normally results in a smoother, more “correct” player experience. – An excerpt from the Battlelog post
However you will need a very good internet connection in order to take full advantage of this update.
The High Frequency Update is by default turned OFF in this release. You will have to enable this setting to take advantage of the improved networking. To support players with a limited bandwidth connection, we support three different levels: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. Most players with a connection faster than 1Mbit upload and 1Mbit download should be fine using the HIGH setting. If you experience any issues, lower or turn off the setting completely.
Will this make the game better? Only time will tell and so should you in the comments section below.
