Bruised and broken

Day one patches are typically reserved for minor fixes, but Medal of Honor: Warfighter takes things to a whole new level. The game's last minute software update – available today alongside its North American release – fixes a slew of single-player and multiplayer bugs, including teensy issues such as “unresponsive controls”.

The sheer size of the list forced many to ponder how the title passed certification in the first place. Thankfully, BioWare’s Manveer Heir had an answer: “Microsoft and Sony will give you a waiver if you promise to have the Day 0 patch, ask nicely, are a big game, and pay a little,” he said on Twitter. “Not sure if payment is always required but I know it sometimes is.”

So, basically, the game wasn’t finished when it went to QA. Fantastic.
