EA and DICE acknowledge BF3 demo problems


We are sure it hasn’t escaped your notice that the currently running Battlefield 3 Beta is not exactly glitch-free.  Well, it is a Beta after all – these things by their very nature are not going to be perfect.  Gamers have been encouraged to feed back any problems they have experienced, and on the official Blog EA and DICE have announced a list of the fixes they will be applying to the game’s code.  This is not an exhaustive list – so you are encouraged to continue reporting problems.

  • Fixed occasional client crash when reviving.
  • Fixed killcam showing glitched area under map if your killer is dead.
  • Issue with spawning on dead squad mates fixed.
  • Fixed a bug where shooting at a moving enemy could cause more than the intended amount of damage.
  • Crosshairs for shotguns have been replaced with a new, thinner, art.
  • A subtle low health screen effect has been added.
  • Tweaked scores of Medals and Service Stars.
  • Tweaked the Rank progression.
  • Pushing prone on console will not play the animation twice.
  • Fixed loss of Squad Leader after EOR at some times.
  • Framerate stability fixes.
  • The 3D spotting icons has been tweaked to better match the target’s visibility. Icons will show frequently less on mostly obscured targets.
  • Fixed issue with crosshair disappearing after round transition.
  • Fixed issue with crosshair disappearing after trying to deploy while the countdown timer still active.
  • Squad list now shows specializations chosen, VOIP activity and dead squad mates.
  • Non working options in squad menu fixed: “Private” flag and “Switch Teams”.

Battlefield 3 will be released on October 25th, 2011 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
