Big Battlefield 3 PC patch next week; console version shortly after

DICE is getting ready to deploy a “significant” update to the PC version of Battlefield 3 sometime next week, the official BF blog notifies.

What will it fix? The developer isn’t going into the nitty-gritty, but quite a few things: “Improved polish, stability, weapons balancing, squad control functionality, user interface enhancements, and several feature enhancements that address feedback the community has provided to date – plus we’re removing the so called ‘negative mouse acceleration’ that some of you have experienced.”

PS3 and 360 versions are coming as well, but they’ll take a while longer due to the certification processes. Expect them “shortly” after the PC version.
