6 GB update?!?!

#1warior55Posted 3/10/2013 3:10:21 PM
What the hell is going on? I just tried to play this game and it prompted me to download a 6,100 MB update. I last played this game two weeks ago, but I cant imagine that 6 GB worth of updates were released in such a short period.

Is this supposed to happen?

Welcome to BF3 patches. There will be another next week with the expac. Well for premium folks anyway

Doesn't everyone have to download the expac patches, even if you dont have premium? I remember hearing that somewhere...

Everyone downloads a subset of them yes, then the expac proper is released and usually about the same size as the patch that comes before it.

Wow. Just decided to play the game after several months. Just figured I'd rush in, force myself, and get back into it. Notice hey, another update. Probably like a gig...but I haven't played in a while, let's check the forums..


6GB? REALLY? Pass. I'll just go back to whatever else I was playing.



Edit: Oh wait, no. Over 10 gb actually. Fun fun fun fun.

They absolutely must fix this in BF4. Downloading entire new game's worth of GBs is unacceptable if it does not significantly alter my gameplay. When I want to play BF3, I should be able to just hop in and play it.
