Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: The massive patch for Battlefield 3 is now live on PC. It weighs in at 1.6GB and brings a number of changes, stability and balance tweaks to the game.

A major change for PC players is the improved commo rose feature which adds:

New global call-outs
We have added a number of new commo rose call-outs that you can make to the entire team whenever you want. Where you previously had to look at a Support player to get the option to request ammo, you can now use the commo rose at any time to request ammo, health, or repairs. Using these requests will trigger appropriate icons on the minimap.

Moved orders to commo rose
We moved orders so that they are now exclusive to the commo rose. This means that you will no longer accidentally place an order when you in reality wanted to spot an enemy standing near a flag, for example.

Improved mouse handling
The mouse movement is now always tracked from the center of the commo rose, to make navigation more intuitive.

Quicker activation
You now activate a call-out simply by releasing Q, which should be snappier than the previous implementation.

Improved readability
We tweaked the layout and design of the commo rose to improve readability and give clearer and quicker confirmation of which call-out is currently highlighted.

The entire list of changes can be viewed here.

EGM’s TAKE: PC fans will certainly be happy at the improved commo rose, something that’s been requested for the last few months. Apart from that it’s just a very long list of improvements and fixes along with the addition of those controversial shortcut items. Will the community accept them? By the looks of things they have so far, but not without a fair bit of complaining.
