Battlefield 3 Patch 1.03 Now Live, Fixes PS3 VOIP Problems

DICE has sent live Battlefield patch 1.03. Details below.

The patch is only 11 MB, takes less than two minutes to download, (faster or slower depending on your internet speed), and fixes many issues. DICE also confirmed in a recent tweet that it had found a solution for the PS3 voice chat problems the game suffers.

“I can say VoIP updates for PS3 next month, but more than that I’ll keep to myself at the moment,” said Tomas Danko, VO Producer at DICE via twitter.

He also spoke of a jeep horn fix: “I found the patch where the jeep horn fix was added to but don’t know when it will be released (it wasn’t released yet).”

Here are some fixes gamers have been asking for:

1 – You’re taking cover, yet bullets hit you to your death. And we’re not talking destructible cover here, we’re talking solid hiding positions- yet you get killed! Here’s what DICE Senior Gameplay Designer, Alan Kertz said concerning the issue: “aware of some desync issues between client and server yes.” At least they’re aware, and so we’re hoping steps are being taken to rectify this.

2 – Ever getting ready to go into battle and suddenly you spawn on top of a Jet? Yeah, it’s happened to many. Here’s what DICE Gameplay Designer, Gustav Halling said on the matter: “I hope you know its a bug otherwise I’m scared just kidding but its a bug of course =) Hopefully fixed in next big patch.”

3 – Sometimes you simply can’t deploy into a game. You try, but nothing happens. This needs to be fixed.’

4 – On big maps, especially when you’re playing conquest, there are not enough vehicles in certain locations to keep you moving, instead you find yourself running for long periods of time only to get mowed down by, what, a bullet? I dunno.

    i dint mange to play with anyone last night to check out my headset issues, did the patch include gun levelling? i breifly tried the USAS-12 and it seemed weaker to me, however i still got my arse kicked by people using this gun from quite a distance so maybe not, i also found that the famas was still over powered! is there a list anywhere of what exactly the patch updated???

    @Foxton: The patch only fixed the voice chat problems. Another one will be deployed for the other issues, including gun balancing.
