Rent-A-Server and “Death Shield” Bug Fix Live


Today, the Rent-A-Server program has started to roll out for console versions of Battlefield 4. This will let you set up your own private and public Battlefield 4 servers, with control of different options from player count to map rotation. Thanks to these customization options, you’ll be able to create games that suit the play style for you and your friends.

We’d also like to inform you that with today’s server update, we are deploying a fix for the issue being referred to as “Death Shield,” where an invisible “shield” would appear around killed enemies, blocking weapons fire. Thank you for being patient as we worked to get this resolved.

5 - 640

How to Rent a Server
Start up Battlefield 4, go to the Multiplayer menu and select “My Rented Servers”. Here you’ll be able to rent a new server and manage the ones you’ve already rented. After choosing server location and duration of the rental, the purchase is complete. You can find your server under MULTIPLAYER / MY SERVERS. After this, server settings like game modes, map rotation, and much more can be altered.

4 - 640

Rental Periods and Prices
You can rent a Battlefield 4 server on console for a number of different days. The price for renting a server is as follows:

1 day ($1.49)
7 days ($6.99)
30 days ($24.99)
90 days ($59.99)

3 - 640

Server Amount Will Increase
Please note that this is a soft launch of the Rent-A-Server program. This means that we initially will have a limited amount of servers. We will however increase the numbers gradually when we see that everything is running as intended.

We hope you will enjoy the Rent-A-Server program. Don’t hesitate to give us your feedback and comments. Thanks for your support, and see you on the Battlefield!

Battlefield 4 High-Performance Server Solution


Hi everyone,

As you know, we’ve been looking into resolving the “rubber banding” that some players on certain platforms have experienced with Battlefield 4 after the recent release of Naval Strike.  We’ve found that the root cause of the issue was a configuration of certain hardware types dedicated to 64-player matches.

We have invested in new hardware to resolve this issue and deployed new higher-performance servers this week. In preparation, we conducted a significant amount of testing before installing the new servers to ensure they would correct the issue. We are already seeing performance improvement with 64-player matches and expect this to continue.

While the process took longer than we would’ve liked, we wanted to be 100% sure it was done right and that the long-term solution was properly in place.

Our objective is to deliver the best player experience possible. We feel this solution helps us deliver that to you. Stay tuned to our official channels for more information.

Thanks,

Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE VP & GM

Minecraft snapshot 14w17a

It’s been a while since the last snapshot, hope you didn’t miss us too much. We’ve been working a whole bunch on lots of internal rewriting (for plugin API, to make things easier for ourselves and to make things run so much more smoothly) but a lot of that isn’t in this version as it’s fairly unstable.

Notable changes:

  • New highly customisable terrain generation! (Create new world -> “World Type: Customized”)
  • New customisable world borders! Check out the /worldborder command.
  • Lots of bug fixes, performance gains and code cleaninguperizing.
  • ???

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save.

The Easter Eggs of Battlefield


The thrill of finding a well-hidden Easter egg in the nooks and crannies of a video game is a true enjoyment. Ever since Battlefield 1942, the Battlefield games have all been filled with secret messages, mysterious sounds, and prehistoric animals – and the fans of Battlefield have been incredible in finding them. Read on to learn some of the most classic ones.

In this part of Battlefield 3 Aftermath, as documented by pvkiller777, someone seems to have left part of their wardrobe lying around. We have a feeling we will see more of this forgetful individual soon.

In Battlefield 3 End Game, a very special family of three could be found. Check out this video from Westie:

Lying about the size of caught fish is, as you know, sadly common. Battlefield veteran JackFrags and his friends were however not lying when they told us about this mighty catch:

Sometimes you have to look on things from a different perspective to find what you’re looking for. Back in Battlefield 2, you could see something unique if you just took to the skies. Weltaz wonders who put those circles there…

The Battlefield is not only for all-out war, explosions, and crazy vehicle stunts – there should be room for more relaxing activities too. Look what lFlapjackl found in the sand:

There are of course many more Easter egg finding that have been reported (and perhaps more that you haven’t found yet…) but we won’t spoil the hunt for you. DICE would like to wish you all a happy Easter, and of course urge you all this: never stop looking.
