Battlefield 1 patch 1.02 fixes crashes, freezing, and controller bugs

It looks like that crazy burning zeppelin glitch is still around.

The latest update to Battlefield 1 fixes a number of freeze and crash issues, clears up a button problem with Xbox One controllers on the PC, takes care of some graphical issues, and also eliminates a problem that would occasionally cause the game to crash upon exit. The full patch notes are posted on the Battlefield forums, but for your convenience you can just give 'em a look down below. 

Here's what's happened:

And it looks like Shaun got his wish: There's no mention of the psychedelic disco tornado zeppelin glitch in the patch notes, meaning that the sky will continue to blaze bizarrely for a little while longer.
