Batllefield 3 Update

Tue Dec 06, 2011 12:47 pm

Wow - Just logged into Origin today, and there was a 4GB update.

This game was clearly not finished when they released it to the public, I wonder why people would release a game that, so far as i remember, have updates for over 6-8GB! Isn't this a lot of patches/updates for a game title that is as big as Battlefield was? Yes I say was, because with the Battlefield 3 - I'm sure that the Battlefield series have declined in users - at least many of the players got back to playing BF2 or Bad Company 2!

-What is your opinion on this big update/patches? Am I totally wrong?

   I did the same. I gotta thank EA sport for atleast releasing a free preview. I had a lot of trouble getting Origin to work right and even when I managed to do it, the game did not work too well. Needless to say I did not bother buying the full version. My usual BF2 servers are still full with regulars so I guess not many people switched.

I'm as also considering going back to BF2 - so much more fun overall!

To the OP, I believe the expansion pack "Back to Kharkand(sp?)" was released today on the PS3. I prefer the strategy of BC3 to the twitchy arcade style of MW3. A lot of people don't realize they're two different types of games. I also prefer PC gaming over consoles.

Happy shooting!

Well said.
The gameplay of BF2, BF 1942 is distinctly different than any CoD series. I prefer BF series and I too play exclusively on PC's. Too bad I will not be joining bandwagon of BF3 any time soon.

I intentially didn't mention any CoD games - to not let this thread be a classic BF against CoD!

Yep it was, but I only play 1st person shooters on the PC!

True. To be honest I'm a fan of both BF and CoD.

Ask anyone on a dedicated BF og CoD forum and they would respond "You have to be either BF or CoD"  (personally I don't care - Just think it's is stupid to say that someone has to choose)

I haven't played CoD yet - since I'm alright with BF
