Jan 20th 2014 and still freeze ups on BF4?


Whilst I get this is a heavily graphic loaded game, with lost of moving parts, it's sill quite frustrating to have the game freeze up so much.


In fact it wouldn't be so bad if it were to happen more often when I was getting my butt kicked, but it appears to happen more often when I am doing the butt kicking! LOL...


The other issue that keeps coming up is lost connection with EA Sports??


I know it's not my internet as friends tell me all they time that they too have this same issue, so what's the issue with EA  Sports?

Just clear your system cache, go to your system settings, go to memory device, and on your hard drive click Y, then hit Clear system cache.

Freezing happens to a lot of games usually games with a lot of stuff in it (like open world games and BF4) if your system can't handle loading it your system shuts down, or freezes. Most of the time your system just needs a cleaning, and don't worry cleaning the system Cache won't delete anything.

Unfortunately because of the frustration of the crashing it has prevented me from purchasing the premium pack, it's just not worth it if it keeps crashing. Sorry

Cache has been cleared many of times, and yet the problem still exists.


I've never messed around with the stock system, and only use genuine parts (controllers) and games, so there is not interference issues there?


I love the BF games and have donated many of hours to them, and will continue to do so, just a little disappointed with the crashing that's all.


However to be fair it was much worse on BF3, and in particular Metro defending the last two cases.

I've cleared the cache and loaded the disc 1 onto my HD, it's helped a lot. The only issue I have is on DawnBreaker. I'm all good until it freezes on the map and the it starts freezing every game until I take a break for a few hours. So avoid DawnBreaker as much as possible

Where's my testicle money?

★★★★ Newbie

Usually BETA TESTIES get paid. 


BF4 was incomplete upon release. The boss said "Ship before December. Year-end profits must be up!"


Premium should not be available until the BETA tests are complete and the program is stable, like they did in BF3. 


They disrespect our loyalty. Time to get an Ouya for $99

This problem then isn't "solved".  It is irritating.  Happened twice thus far tonight and in the span of 20 minutes.

This is a well known issue in the community the issue is that the servers are crashing for some reason, Dice are trying to locate and fix the issue so the game won't crash and such, until then we have to wait and be patient.


Regards, Grimzy

This is true, DICE has in the past few weeks released several server side patches and they have addressed the vast majority of crash issues that are server related.  For me Hainen resort and sometimes Dawnbreaker are frequent crashes.  The good news is that the BF4 Xbox and Playstation client side patches are currently in certification and will be released shortly (no exact date provided by DICE) and they address the problems the community has identifed
