DICE have announced that a big, fat Battlefield 3 update patch is on its way for PC next week, and that console patches will follow soon after.
In a blog post over on the Battlefield site, the dev team explained what improving tweaks they've been making to the formula, detailing the benefits gamers can expect to see.
'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.'
They also dispensed some helpful advice on what to do when faced with unsporting conduct, allowing players the chance to point out cheating scum and proponents of offensive 'your mum' jokes.
'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.'
