Tuesday, August 15, as Danny so eloquently put it, ‘Battlefield 2 would have a visit from his own medic’. But that medic probably travels with the NS, because today we still haven’t seen a patch. EA has stated that an unexpected error occurred during final processing that caused the delay.
- “As many of you are now aware we have made the choice to take some extra time with the 1.4 patch before release,” said an EA community bid sweeping low over the internet. “During our standard final processing of the 1.4 client update we came across an issue that, although it does not compromise stability, we felt needed to be addressed in order to meet our goal of improving the overall player experience,” the statement continued, before rolling into an advisory about the dangers of downloading beta patches.
In addition to the necessary bug fixes, the patch would also offer new play elements. For example, the patch includes the new map ‘Road to Jalalabad’ (we’re not making it up either), a mode to turn off the vehicles and extensive support for modders, called MODLight. It is not yet known when the patch will be released.
