It's not been a good week for PC or PS4 owners of Battlefield 4.
EA confirmed that the PC version of the game suffered a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack for much of the last 48 hours, preventing users from accessing the game’s online mode.
The game’s Battlelog page carried the following message: “We are currently experiencing attacks on our infrastructure that is impacting online gameplay on BF4 PC. We are working on mitigating actions.”
DICE then took to the game’s forums to add: “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.”
There has also been widespread woe for owners of the PS4 version, with users complaining of troubles accessing the game’s online servers and crashes in all game modes.
“We are deploying a new server to the PlayStation4 platform,” DICE said of that situation. “You might be disconnected from your session as servers are restarting to apply the new patch. The server update addresses a very severe crash issue on the PS4.”
