BF3 patch
Good news, everyone! According to DICE (via Twitter), the new Battlefield 3 patch is currently in certification at Microsoft and Sony, which means the patch is complete and only awaits the go-ahead from the console makers. Of course, the PC patch could be released earlier, but DICE likes to update all three platforms at the same time.

Last time a patch was in the certification stage, we saw it released approximately one week later, which means — fingers crossed — we could see the new Battlefield 3 patch released next week.

      Seriously dude? How old are you? Just interested to see if anyone over 18 wants this mode. Seems to be a bit errr….childish for a BF game. Seems a little odd to want this mode b4 other maps / gametypes.

      Any other children want this?

    Been waiting for this patch a little too Lang since then I’ve sunk $10 into tribes ascend and $30 into black light retribution, the clock is ticking dice I might not buy dlc personally but if thousands of players like me lose interest In te game in sure people who actualy do buy dlc will also lose interest as player counts continue to drop. CqC an the vehicle dlc both sound like shit, super close maps like grand BADzaar and overly huge vehicle only maps like caspian boredom are both terrible. Ironically the best maps out there like strike at karkand are just reimagibibga of the classic maps go figure. End game is the only one that’s appealing to me out of the 3 and that’s because there’s so little info on it I can’t judge it yet.

    Why bother to writing anything ? DICE dont read this, DICE has theirs own plan to suck money from us, and you all buy DLC anyway.

    It doesn’t seem fair they are holding this up for PC users.
    Seen the new “Close Quarters” trailer? At the end it mentions that PS3 users get it a week early!

    At any rate, I hope it comes out soon and fixes cheats if anything.

    A FAMAS and USAS-12 Frag Round nerf is fantastic, but surely there will be a fix for the MAV roadkills? That’s annoying too.

      If you roadkill someone the MAV will now be destroyed afterwards. So you can basically not go on any sprees anymore.

      Plus you can’t use the MAV as a helicopter anymore.

      It needs to be this way…you see it’s the CoD-ification of the entire FPS genre…

      FPS these days need to be mongoloid trisomy 21 proof ie spray spray spray -> hold down a button and win! Who cares about recoil and accuracy?!

      Fucking Dice/EA scammers and thieves should be deported and gassed for their shameless policy/attitude regarding their non existing “patch”…the last time (like half a year ago!) their “patch” actually DOWNgraded the game and made it unplayable on some systems when it was perfectly fine before…

    The only good thing I think dice did with BF3 was the Frostbite 2 engine. Other than that, there are too many glitches, weapons are unbalanced, Dice is taking way too long with patches, and this game is basically a COD game and the new dlc is a testament to that.

    Dear, so far, DICE, could you please call the Department certification PS3 and X360 and tell them they no longer to order a beer, bitches and whores, and began to be engaged in the work already.
    Better yet, run the patch on the PC, it is possible to hasten these lazy people.

    I wouldt mind if they just gave out half of the patch now, like weapon balance and small bugs, it doesnt need to come in a huge chunk, neither on all platforms at once.

    What I find funny is that HUGE list of changes they are thinking of implementing will not all happen on this one patch, for all we know, this patch is going to be tiny, and if it is, DICE I hope you have impenetrable walls, cause hell will break lose on Earth.
