DICE are releasing a huuuuge update for Battlefield 3 on the Playstation 3 today, with Xbox 360 and PC versions of the patch to follow shortly. The update brings fixes, changes and improvements, and also introduces the ability to rent BF3 servers to console versions of the game.
Check out all the update details right here, but we’ll tell you a little bit more about the server rental option. You’ll find it in the game under the conventiently named “Rent a Server” option and be able to rent your own Battlefield 3 server for a period of 1 day (cost – $1.49), 7 days (cost – 6.99), 30 days (cost – $24.99), and 90 days (cost – $64.99).
DICE are still ramping up the outlay of servers, so if you go to rent one and find the option greyed out, it just means they are currently at full capacity. Apparently the roll out should be complete in one week, which will hopefully mean no more waiting for servers to become available.
