I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 and recognized that all AMD software is not working anymore. On the AMD website are no drivers for the Radeon HD4000 series for Windows 8.1 to be found. Will there soon be some?

The same way as you make it work under windows 95. YOU CAN'T!

Although some people say 13.1 legacy (for vista/7) works somehow. I'm not saying it does, but try it.

And there is no chance that a Windows 8.1 will be released soon?

Not likely, the card is no longer supported. 13.1 is your best chance or upgrading to Windows 7 or linux.

I tried version 13.1 but it didn't work.

One silly question: What do I even need the graphics drivers for? I have uninstalled all drivers and AMD software now, but still can play Battlefield at the same FPS as with Windows 8.0 and Catalyst 13.4...

It means you didn't uninstall the drivers or windows update reinstalled them. Without graphics drivers no game would start and even windows explorer would lag like hell when dragging windows etc.
