DICE is rolling out a massive January update across all platforms, to bring consoles in line with the recently released PC patch. DICE says that Battlefield players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be getting their updates on January 14th. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will also be getting a update shortly, with the PS3 version due to arrive on the 14th as well.
