Battlefield 4 multiplayer struggling against DDOS attacks

Battlefield 4 has been out for about two weeks now and has had no shortage of post-launch problems. PC gamers have suffered from all sorts of problems ranging from frame rate issues and severe crashes to loss of campaign and multiplayer progress. DICE has been working on patching up all of the issues for gamers but the problem is getting worse as a slew of distributed denial-of-service attacks bombard the game’s multiplayer servers.

Battlefield 4 producer Ali Hassoon, who goes by the name Striterax on the Battlelog forum, came on to explain that they were working on fixing the issue:

“We are being targeted by a DDOS, but working on fixing it asap. I’m sorry somebody is ruining your and my day. Rest assured we are doing our best to mitigate the situation though. ”

DICE posted an update on patches earlier today on the Battlelog forum, giving a list of things that are due to be fixed. However, other than the PS4 which will get a patch this week, we don’t know when other platforms will receive the update.

“We are aware of the frequent crashes in Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4. We are hard at work identifying these issues and are hoping to get a game update out early next week. Stay tuned for more details as we can confirm them, and thanks for your patience!”

Kitguru Says: The development team still has quite a bit of work to do, sometimes you can get a good multiplayer session in but for me the experience has been a little too inconsistent for my liking. Have you guys been having problems with Battlefield 4?
