Battlefield 4 developer DICE announced on its official blog the launch of the “Community Test Environment” where players can provide feedback for the game’s upcoming updates.
From serious lag issues, to rubberbanding and occasional crashes, the game’s problems continue to exist, but DICE hopes this new initiative will steer the ship in the right direction.
“By launching this new program, not only will we be able to address player feedback at an early stage, but also increase the overall quality of the game,” DICE stated on their blog, adding player-to-player interactions are among the first things they plan to improve. “This involves tweaking to the ‘tickrate’ servers and networking in general.”
Only those with Premium memberships to the game can register for the new environment, but the studio plans to expand the CTE to more players.
The new program is only available to PC users who must download a special client and connect to a separate item of Battlelog.
