1.34GB Battlefield 4 Winter Patch rolls out

Squad Obliteration! Better netcode! Soldier Collision!

Battlefield 4's long-awaited Winter Patch rolls out today.

Reports indicate it weighs in at 1.34GB on Xbox One.

The Winter Patch is designed to improve netcode and soldier collision, as well as tweak the Squad Obliteration game mode so it becomes the lead competitive mode in DICE's first-person shooter. The new Squad Obliteration scales down the fast-paced objective-based gameplay of the original to a 5v5 competitive environment.

Elsewhere, the patch adds three new Premium playlists: Large Scale Battles, The Battlefield and Close Quarters.

The patch notes are over on Battlelog.

DICE has stressed it plans to continue to support Battlefield 4, which launched November 2013, throughout 2015 even as EA launches spin-off Battlefield Hardline this month.

Battlefield 4 suffered a terrible launch, with a number of high-profile technical issues preventing many from playing. It has released a raft of updates ever since in a bid to improve matters.
