Updates are inbound, prepare for battle.
DICE posted on their blog today that they will be releasing a new patch for Battlefield 3 next week. The BF3 patch will come first to PC users, and once certified, it will be released for consoles as well.
So far they haven’t released all the details of the patch but they state we should see improved stability, squad control functionality, weapons balancing and more based on the feedback of the community.
DICE will release the detailed fix list and confirm the exact date and time of the patch next week, which we will then pass along to you. Until then, you can read their full post from today below.
The DICE team are hard at work supporting Battlefield 3. To date, we have implemented several server updates to improve stability and performance. Next week we are publishing a significant Battlefield 3 client update for the PC. Console patches take a bit longer due to the certification requirements for console content, but it will follow shortly after the PC update.
So what’s in the PC patch? You’ll see improved polish, stability, weapons balancing, squad control functionality, user interface enhancements, and several feature enhancements that address feedback the community has provided to date – plus we’re removing the so called “negative mouse acceleration” that some of you have experienced.
Regarding cheating and boosting, we continue to analyze data to identify and hold accountable (ban, wipe stats) players that cheat or boost. We’ve received questions about what to do when faced with unsportsmanlike conduct in Battlefield 3 – the best course of action is to click the warning sign next to their profile name in Battlelog, or head to the EA Help Desk and report your issue. These leads will enable us to follow up on the report.
We appreciate all the feedback. Keep it coming to help us with future improvements. Check back next week to confirm the patch launch date and the detailed fix list. Thanks for playing and sharing your feedback with us!
