Brew up a pot of coffee, Battlefield 3 fans. This is going to take awhile. Looking at the 2011 game, and really the series as a whole, it's easy to see that DICE subscribes to the philosophy of "go big or go home." That thinking extends to the studio's approach to issuing patches as well, and the next one that's coming to BF3 sure is a doozy.
A new Battlelog post runs through an exhaustive list of fixes and tweaks that will be coming soon to basically every facet of the game. And it's not even finished! More changes to the proposed patch notes will be made in the coming days. There's no plan yet for the timing of the patch release, but it IS coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Presumably PC first and then the consoles... eventually.
