DICE are really not having much luck with Battlefield 4 and the problems continue despite the patch earlier today, only this time it’s the new Battlefield 4 China Rising that’s the culprit.
The China Rising DLC landed on the servers earlier with the now familiar Battlefield 4 feature of players being disconnected from the servers. It is a feature right? It has of course not gone unnoticed and DICE are working on a fix and updated their support page to convey the message.
While playing Battlefield 4 with China Rising installed on PC, I get dropped from a game soon after joining
Some PC players of Battlefield 4 China Rising have found themselves getting kicked from servers within seconds of joining.
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.
The official forums are not a great place to be right now, there’s some pretty savoury language because of this problem and the fact that some players can’t access the DLC through Origin. I was also experiencing the Origin problem until I shut it down completely and restarted it a couple of times.
Battlefield 4 has been a pretty horrendous release for EA and DICE and unless things get sorted soon the official forums will probably implode.
