Battlefield 3's next major update will occur across platforms on June 4 (June 5 in Japan for PS3). The update includes reduced suppression, support for colorblind players and an extensive list of other changes.
Not mentioned at all in the update notes: the effect of the Battlefield 3 Premium package, which EA will officially detail on June 4. June 4 is also the reported launch date of the game's "Close Quarters" expansion.
Built on the cutting-edge Frostbite 2 technology, Battlefield 3 aspires to be DICE's best shooter and biggest launch yet. Expect improved graphics, louder explosions and more smithereens. So many smithereens.
