The latest Battlefield 3 patch which has been released within the last 24 hours has now brought the ability for console gamers to setup and enjoy dedicated Battlefield 3 servers. DICE is currently implementing a soft launch for the servers, that won’t reach full capacity until next week.
The new Battlefield 3 patch is just over 1GB in size, and enables you to create both private and public dedicated Battlefield 3 server, and manage them from your console.
Prices for the new Battlefield 3 server start from just £1.19 for a single days and then are offered at 7 days for £5.49, 30 days for £19.99; and 90 days for £47.99.
Private Battlefield 3 servers come with a few enforced rules that cannot be changed, but all tools to tweak your server are provided and are available from within your console. ** If you have the Back to Karkand DLC and download the patch you may have to re-download the DLC as well.
