Tuesday saw the release of the exclusive beta of Battlefield 4, and although the launch went significantly more smoothly than the other big launch of the day, GTA Online, some problems have cropped up.

Now that their beta is in full(ish) swing, Battlefield developer DICE have taken to the forums and released a list of known issues and bugs currently being investigated.

The exclusive beta is open only to Battlefield 3 Premium members, registered owners of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited or Digital Deluxe editions, and customers who pre-ordered the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition on Origin.com. The open beta launches this Friday, 4th October, with the game's release scheduled for UK launch on 1st November.

The full list of issues, as detailed by DICE, is given below:

PC Issues

- We have received reports of Freezes and Crashes affecting the BF4 Beta client. Our team is currently investigating this matter and we will update you here as soon as we know more.

- If you are affected by a Freeze or a Crash upon joining a game, and the error message “BF4 Beta has stopped working” appears, please make sure your Windows is fully updated and your Graphic card is running on its latest driver. Alternatively, some players using GeForce drivers were able to fix this by downgrading their driver to an earlier version.

- We received report of unusually low performances, and are currently looking into that as well.

- Please note that the Battlefield 4 Beta does not support Win32 and 32 Bit operating systems (it is worth noting that the full version of the game WILL run on 32 Bit).

- Video settings may not be saved after rebooting the game.

- The tooltip “E” to enter the Venom is visible at a 400 meter distance.

Xbox 360 Issues

-Player stats in Battledash may not match the stats displayed on Battlelog.

- You may experience an 8 seconds non-interactive pause, when leaving a Multiplayer session or after pressing Start when booting the game.

- You may be floating if you jump on the bollards.

- Cruise Missiles may not destroy any vehicle dropped by Vehicle Drop.

- The requirements for unlock criteria may not be displayed.

- Two flag icons may appear overlapping on each other at each flag point.

- The first attachment of any weapon that is not unlocked, will be the only attachment shown for the first unlocked weapon.

- If you’re disconnected from the EA Servers, the Main Menu tiles remains fixed in the front end.

PS3 Issues

- When you choose to quit during the EOR, you may be able to see “underworld” for 1 second.

- The camera transition before the EOR screen is under water.

- If you destroy an enemy tank near the Flag A, it may triggers the map’s Mini-Levolution event.

- If you quit from the XMB™ menu after the “Press Start” screen, you may experience a forced shutdown.

- The background screen for the losing team during EOR, is placed “under the game world” for Domination and Obliteration game modes.

- The Hit Indicator is not present when shooting at enemies.

- The EOD Bot can’t arm or disarm MCOMs on Rush mode.

- If you disconnect and reconnect your Ethernet cable while playing, the Game may remain in an endless loading loop.

- If you sign out from PSN while loading into a MultiPlayer server, you may experience an infinite loading screen.

- In the Soldier Progression menu, you may be able to see upcoming vehicle unlocks that will not be available in the Beta.

- You may be able to see several Medals, Ribbons, and Dog Tags in the “My Soldier” menu

well actually every card has pretty big preformance issues with this game, i mean we should be getting like 30 fps MORE than what we're getting right now, and 30 fps is kind of a lot

In my opinion, the skyscraper is toooo easy to take down, that it takes the fun out of it, it should be more challenging...

You're lucky, I played Conquest so many times just to see that skyscraper crumble. Not a single game did it fall.

The bug list doesnt even show the biggest bug on the pc version.
The horrible CPU usage it just eats everything that the cpu has to offer for no reason and i don't know for sure but i bet the gpu usage is also low

You are right, CPU usage at 100% whilst GPU is sitting comfortably at 50-% usage, which just shows me that the game is unoptimized...

Yes it as early version of the beta they are using. JUST like they did in BF3. Dont forget the beta is also more importantly for working on back end coding for servers etc. It isnt for Demo purposes really which alot of people keep refering to it as

My game's running really well. I'm playing on medium settings with pretty much 70-150fps.
I've only encountered crashes while I die by the skyscraper when it's crashing down.
Anyways, it's really nice and I can't feel any stutters.

It actually IS shot down by players. You need to hit the blue pillars with explosives.

Not sure if the low performance comes from your pc or from the beta issue :/

No, the performance is way bad!

Been playing it, Leveloution is a joke to be honest, only can level one building. Hit registration is all over the place as well. Choppers are easier to fly, even the guns seem to be weak as **** on infantry. Remembering its a beta though, these problems are usual. I am enjoying it and I'm looking forward to release date.

Have to agree with you about the Levolution, it's gimmicky and doesn't at to the destruction much, taking down 1 skyscraper isn't like leveling the whole map, which would be more awesome, if it was possible, not that I'd go around knocking down every building I saw :D
