'Significant' Battlefield 3 Patch Coming to PC Next Week

DICE promises that PC Battlefield 3 owners will see a major client update in the coming week, one that offers better stability, weapons balance, polish and other adjustments built on community feedback since the game's Oct. 25 release.

"Plus we're removing the so called "negative mouse acceleration" that some of you have experienced," DICE wrote on its official blog yesterday. Presumably, this patch will also reduce the brightness of tactical flashlights and address the game's notorious XP exploit.

Patches for the game's console versions are being built but, of course, take longer because of Microsoft's and Sony's certification processes, the studio said.
