EA and DICE have been forced to delay the day one update for 'Battlefield V'.

The fixes were set to be made available from today (04.12.18), but the team ran into some "issues" getting it up and running.

A tweet on the official game's Twitter reads: "The team has discovered an issue with the #Battlefield Chapter 1: Overture update. Rather than create issues in the game, we're holding the update for the time being. We don't anticipate a long delay and we'll be back with more news tomorrow or as soon as we have it."

The vague statement means it's not yet known how long it will take for the update to be ready to roll out.

The company previously issued patch notes for the update, which was already available for players who had early access via either EA's subscription services or a special edition of the game.

As previously reported by GameSpot, it is mainly focused on fixing several stability issues and bugs.

These include an issue where team sizes could be uneven, improvements to matchmaking to reduce the amount of disconnects and another error which would stop the revive functionality from working.

Amongst the other fixes detailed in the charge log include Airbourne issues, such as one which would prevent the player from collecting letters in War Stories.

There are also some notes specifically related to certain platforms, such as an Xbox One improvement on how the game resumes when using the Instant-On function.

Meanwhile, the PC version now has RTX ray tracing enabled, providing your graphic card supports it.

In other news, it was revealed that microtransactions won't be available at launch.

There will be two forms of currency - Company Coin and Battlefield Currency - with the former earned through in-game progression, and it can be spent on customisation options for your group of soldiers.

In a blog post, DICE revealed: "You can use Company Coin to unlock choices within weapon and vehicle Specialisations. You can also use Company Coin to get cosmetic items, such as jackets, face paint, and weapon skins."

However, Battlefield Currency - the real-money currency - is only be available to use in exchange for cosmetics.
