*The following is a transcript of a recorded conversation from a U.S. military base.*
Private Rogers: That "major" update to Battlefield 4's netcode that DICE VP Karl Magnus Troedsson mentioned last week is ready to launch, major!
Major Clarence: Roger, Roger. Are we green, general?
General Victor: You have clearance, Clarence. The Battlefield 4 netcode update is now live on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and will be released to PS4 and Xbox One systems later this week. In tests, it showed a roughly 60 percent reduction in delay. The patch also contains various bug fixes and tweaks to gameplay, such as reduced camera shake induced by being near an explosion.
*You finish reading the notes and think to yourself, "It sure is fortunate that these military professionals said all this information out loud, even though it likely seemed extraneous at the time."*
