EGM’s TAKE: As promised, DICE has finally delivered the gigantic Battlefield 3 patch it has been working on for the past few months. Many fans became agitated and angry at the lack of support and communication from the development team. This should keep them all happy for a little while. The list of changes is just astronomical, if you had any issue with the game then there’s a good chance that it’s now been fixed. We’re not quite sure why the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the patch have been delayed, but they shouldn’t be too far behind.
