Battlefield 3 patch incoming, possible tactical light fix included
Battlefield 3 is an amazing multiplayer game, but it had some problems at launch. The team at DICE has been hard at work fixing all the little things that keep us from having a good time, and they've announced that a patch should be hitting the Internet soon. At least for the PC.
"So what’s in the PC patch?" a post on the game's official forum asks rhetorically. "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."
But wait, it gets better!
The patch is expected to arrive this week for the PC, but the console versions will of course have to wait while Microsoft and Sony put the code through their respective certification processes. The game's core gameplay designer also tweeted an image of what a fixed tactical light may look like. Here are the before and after shots, showing a light that has been toned down in intensity. Let's pray this improvement makes it into the patch that's coming this week:
The tactical light is an interesting "weapon" that can be used to blind and disorient the enemy in Battlefield 3, but for every one player who knows how to turn it against the enemy effectively, there are three dozen who just run around blinding everyone around them. This fix should dramatically improve that situation.
