Some update on what has been patched most recently in Battlefield 3 have been released:
Squad Functionality: Improved!
Today, we rolled out a number of fixes that will improve squad functionality. Specifically these fixes will improve squad stability and lessen the risk of your squad getting split up when joining a game.
Default Server Region Setting: Improved!
In the manual server browser on Xbox 360, there was an issue where US players would sometimes be defaulted to European servers. We rolled out a fix for this today. You can still set your preferred region(s) in the server browser, and it’s a great tool to find your favorite servers, game modes, and gamer friends. Check out this handy guide for everything you can do with the console server browser.
Game Stability: Improved!
Today, we rolled out fixes for several game crash issues.
Karkand Set for December
Our dedicated Back to Karkand team continues to make awesome progress on this expansion pack, which will be available in December at no extra charge to everyone who pre-ordered Battlefield 3. If you didn’t pre-order, you’ll be able to purchase it for $14.99, 1200 Microsoft Points, or the equivalent in your local currency, at the same date.
It contains four of the most loved Battlefield 2 maps boldly re-imagined in Frostbite 2: Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula, Strike at Karkand, and Wake Island. You’ll also get to patrol the battlefield with your favorite Battlefield 2 vehicles and weapons, and the expansion pack also features the return of the exciting variation on Conquest called Conquest Assault (more on that later). And for those of you who love your persistence, you’ll get new "Assignments" to complete for unlocks (we’ll talk more about Assignments soon)!
Physical Warfare Pack for all
All of our players will be happy to know that Physical Warfare Pack will be available to everyone in the future! The Physical Warfare Pack contains the Type 88 LMG, DAO-12 Shotgun, SKS Sniper Rifle flash suppressor, and flechette ammunition for the DAO-12 Shotgun. Stay tuned to the Battlefield Blog for more information on exact timing for this.
