Following outcries that it’s near-impossible to find official Battlefield 3 servers these days, EA has announced that it has brought back a larger number of them.
Following the debut of the game’s rent-a-server feature, the developer started renting out official servers, which in turn made regular DICE-hosted servers mighty scarce. But no more.
“You should see DICE-hosted servers up today”, publisher EA has told VentureBeat. “I do not have the exact percentage or number of servers, but we’ll continue to monitor this to make sure all players are having the best possible gameplay experience.”
I just did a quick search on the 360 version and was able to find 599 official servers. VB’s own search on the PS3 turned up a whole heap as well.
All is well again.
