DICE has outlined what to expect from Battlefield 4‘s next big update, due out in September.

The developer is using the Battlefield 4 Community Test Environment to get feedback on how to improve the game, live producer David Sirland wrote on the Battlefield blog.

Chief among the tweaks is a change to soldier movement so that it closely matches the one in Battlefield 3, but without compromising the visual fidelity. This change also makes it easier to get away from undesirable firefights, Sirland added.

Elsewhere, DICE has de-cluttered the HUD to only show what is important. “We have added several options and functionality to make your screen much less cluttered (and give you a lot of choice in making it the way you want).”
