Battlefield developer DICE has smashed into 2014 full of newfound vigour having recently released a brand new patch for the PC version of Battlefield 4 before rolling out a title update for the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

DICE has also confirmed that all platforms will be addressed this month with updates, so your platform of choice should be receiving a patch in the next week or so, too. What’s been fixed with the PS4 edition of the Battlefield 4 patch, though? Let’s take a look:

- Fixed flickering in map and minimap on Rouge Transmission and Operation Locker

- EU Players: Fixed bug where game wouldn’t start when when the console was running in any of these languages: Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Brazilian Portuguese
- Fix for bug where it looked like soldier was dying with 1 health instead of 0
- Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
