Battlefield has been fully launched for roughly 4 days now (a bit longer for players that had EA Access or the Early Enlister edition of the game), but we now have our very first update for the title. Update 1.02 landed for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 users and is primarily designed to eliminate bugs, glitches, and other related issues.
Battlefield 1 Update 1.02 Patch Notes
Want to know exactly what was addressed with the first update for BF1? No problem. Below, we’ve outlined the patch notes so you can see for yourself and what EA and DICE have done.
- Fixed an issue where players would get stuck on the globe screen whenever they cancelled going into matchmaking.
- Fixed a problem where the player’s class rank wasn’t accurate.
- Fixed an issue where players were seeing inaccurate information being displayed while on loading screens.
- Fixed an issue where PC players would experience artifacts showing up in shadows.
That’s it for this round.
The notes are pretty short, but they do solve a few game-breaking complications and, more than likely, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes tweaks that improve general performance of the game that we just aren’t aware of.
Other crazy glitches and troublesome game issues will likely be addressed in future patches. We’ll also likely see the development team look into things such as weapon balancing, vehicle performance, and map glitches as time goes on.
The good thing is that EA and DICE are clearly on top of things. Update 1.02 has come out relatively fast which means the team is probably actively monitoring the game and discussion boards to pinpoint issues that are affecting players and working to solve them as quickly as possible.
For most people, the game has provided a relatively smooth experience other than the time that services such as the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live were down during global attacks on DNS servers that put gaming services offline, along with other major Internet-based websites and services.
If you are experiencing any significant issues with the game that have not been addressed yet, there are a few ways that you can get the word to the development team.

It’s important that gamers relay this information to the development team. Without your feedback, it’s difficult for the developers to figure out what’s wrong and develop a solution for it. So, be sure to get in touch with EA or DICE if you’re having any issues with Battlefield 1.
