Hello, I have a Day One edition Xbox One and not surprisingly, I've been having problems with Battlefield 4 since launch. I have the games on demand version of the game. Along with the numerous multiplayer issues, the single player game has become unplayable. When the game first came out I would finish the first mission and then the game would hang on the load screen for the second mission. I was told then to reinstall, but when I did, nothing changed. When the December patch was released I was prompted to reinstall again, so I did. This fixed that particular issue and I was able to continue with the game, to a point. At that point I was able to progress until the end of the 5th level where the last room of the mission simply wasn’t there. I trouble shot the machine, clearing the cache and reinstalling the title again. This time I was able to play another few missions until it froze again during a load screen. I tried starting from an earlier save point and that just crashed every few minutes. This leads me up to last week when the most recent patch is released, and again, I am prompted to reinstall the entire game again. Fine, I do that and try and continue my game, it won’t load my most recent save point and crashes within a few minutes at any earlier save point. I then try to start a new game, hoping that will create a new, hopefully uncorrupted save file. Instead it gives me the same error I had when I first purchased the game and the second mission will not load, and it still didn’t erase my old save file.
During all this the multiplayer has had a variety of issues, the most frustrating being that some maps won’t load at all, and after each installation, those unplayable maps change. I have also had a similar problem with Forza, where the game constantly crashes when loading a particular track (Laguna Seca). I recently read that this might actually be a problem with the hard drive of the XB1, and not the games themselves, any truth to that?
So, here I am with the game I bought the system for being largely unplayable, turning my XB1 into a $500 Peggle machine. I’ve tried reaching out to EA, but they’re being pretty silent about the games multitude of problems. Any help that anyone could provide would be much appreciated.
