Battlefield 4 High Frequency Update Starts Rolling on PS4 and Xbox One Today!

Battlefield 4 High Frequency Update has started rolling out today on PS4 and Xbox One.

?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,? DICE said.

By default, the High Frequency Update is turned OFF in this release. You?ve got to enable it the setting if you?d love to take advantage of the improved networking. Moreover, Battlefield 4 is offering three different levels to support players with a limited bandwidth connection, namely: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. So if you have a connection faster than 1Mbit, then you will be fine using the HIGH setting. However, if ever you?d experienced any issues, lower or turn off the setting completely.
