    Obviously it's a bug introduced by the most recent patch. I mean, most of us have never seen that before. Most of us have never had a problem with the game loading with no issues. I know I've played the game almost daily since release, and never had a single time where the game didn't load.
    I've only had the globe show up once for me (last Friday). And it took restarting the game 3 times to get past it. Judging by the amount of threads showing up on this and other forums, there's a lot of people that have experienced this bug recently. So once again, Dice broke something with an update.
    I don't think it's a Sony firmware issue, as people on PC and Xbone are also reporting the same thing.

    I just hold my breath frightnened thinking about this game's, and franchise's future......
    Thank **** there's a new Wolfenstein coming soon

    Just had it happen to me. 3rd time reloading, finally opened. Day 2 of this globe. Im getting close to my breaking point because of this nonsense. My faith in this franchise is decreasing slowly. BF3 was epic. Bugs yes, but the fun factor was there and it got me excited to want to play the game. Even Metro back then due to outside access on rush. Damavand Peak, cliff jumping to the next pair of MComs which in turn made you bust your butt to PTFO just to experience the thrill and excitement. The destruction was amazing, faulty some times, but u didnt care. It was fun. Oh....and LOTS of vehicles too.

    BF4.....we all know how that went. But it had ALOT of vehicles.

    Now we get to BF1....LACK of vehicles.....DICE....read the forums. Obviously YOUR checklist is not what US players/ paying customers ie. YOUR PAYCHECKS are wanting done. There have been so many simple, simple requests to change minor things posted over and over since the release of the game. Its nearly 1 year in and what does BF1 have to show for it? Broken hit reg. Laggy servers, ping caps. Ugly quickmatching. The list goes on. And now a globe shows up. Guys, reality check. Maybe you should think more about passion than greed. It will prove itself in the end.

    Sorry for the rant, I really do enjoy this series, but right now, i just dont have the urge to want to play it as much as I want too. And when I do, im usually on Operations bagging snipers, or stunt flying in a plane. Nothing more.

    Cheers all,
    See you on the battlefield.

    Playing on the PS4 and every other time I start BF1 I get the planet in middle of screen with some background music. BF1 then fails to load and the game just does nothing. Close the game and restart and BF1 will start as normal?

    What's the point of putting this fail loading screen in the game? Is there a reason other than to frustrate players?

    It would be a good idea if they just added something like "we have encountered a service error please restart your console"

    I got it 3 times now in the last two days, had never seen it before and had to google it to find out what it was.

    I've had this happen a few times too. Seems like the last update messed everything up.

    Game played fine until Lupkow pass and the DLC dropped. I'm no dev or network engineer but I wish they could release content without breaking things.

    Or maybe do what they did with BF4, just hand it over to DICE LA and see if they can't fix it up for us.

    Has dice released anything about the spinning globe yet? Confirmed bug? Server related? Working as intended? They are working to resolve it?
    A little info would be appreciated so we can trouble shoot the problem.

    It's not a bug, it's a feature™

    K now it's getting annoying, It happened every other time I started the game yesterday

    The problem seems to have been with the new update 1.14 corrupting the save data for BF1 on the system HDD. To solve the issue it means wiping all of BF1's saved data from the system HDD. You will have have to start the single player all over again. I wouldn't redownload the saved game data from the online storage as the problem will come back :)

    I get the same problem. It’s the game crashing upon load up. The only way I’ve figured out how to get around it is to restart the app.
