Battlefield 5 Update 7.3 Rolls Out Tuesday, Patch Notes Revealed

The latest update for Battlefield 5 will come to all platforms on Tuesday, and it will fix some minor bugs, particularly one that causes EA Play users to be incorrectly labelled.


Battlefield 5 received a major fall update just a few weeks ago, and we're already getting another patch. However, update 7.3 is a relatively minor one, focused on fixing small but persistent bugs, such as making sure that unlockable cosmetics are actually unlocking, and fixing paint jobs for specific planes.

We've got the full patch notes below, but the most notable fix is for a bug that caused EA Play users to show up as Trial Users, which caused many players to complain. The patch also updates the game's loading screen with some new artwork.
