Battlefield 3 Patch Coming to PC Next Week, DICE Says
The patch is coming next week for PC players, sometime shortly thereafter for console players after the patch clears certification from Sony and Microsoft. It’ll include a number of improvements as well as deal with some cheaters, apparently:
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.
Meantime, DICE says players should continue to dish feedback to the developer, as it’s paying attention to the issues users are facing for potential future patches.
