Following a number of issues and outages developers DICE and EA have revealed they are making 'daily updates' to the flailing Battlefield 3 multiplayer services after servers repeatedly went down

Battlefield 3 developers EA and DICE have confirmed they are working on patches for the first person shooter whilst making ‘daily updates’ to the title’s flailing online services.

Having revealed that Battlefield 3 sales set a new record for the developer shifting 5 million copies in its opening week EA has revealed it is still working to make the game better after a number of users complained of outages to the EA Online servers which allow gamers to make use of the extensive Battlefield 3 multiplayer offerings.

"With a commitment to support the game as a software service, EA is listening to consumer feedback and is making daily updates and improvements to ensure an optimal online experience for all," an official statement from the company read.

Plagued by server outages in the hours after launch Battlefield 3 has got off to a somewhat rocky start with developer DICE stating via its official blog: “The overwhelming response [to Battlefield 3] has been as humbling as it is appreciated. Battlefield 3 is the fastest selling game in EA’s history, but is not without its ups and downs.”

The statement added: “Despite the fact that millions of people are online playing Battlefield 3, some of you are experiencing issues. The DICE team, as well as the many EA groups that support this historic launch, have all been working around the clock.

“We’ve deployed a number of server-side updates in our first week that have solved a number of the primary connectivity challenges, and have accelerated our rollout of the number of Hardcore servers.”
