Battlefield 3 Beta Patch Coming Soon [Update: Now Available]

When the beta for Battlefield 3 was publicly released yesterday, fans weren’t pleased due to the bugs and glitches.

If the bugs and glitches have been bothering you all day yesterday, DICE announced today that the beta will receive an update and will fix the most complained issue on the beta.

Below is the list of updates that you should expect when the patch hits your console.

[Update] Seems the patch is now available!

* 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.

* Pushing prone on console will not play the animation twice.
* Fixed loss of Squad Leader after EOR at some times.

* Squad list now shows specializations chosen, VOIP activity and dead squad mates.
