The updates aim to address "balance and gameplay, performance, stability and the overall feature set", reports Eurogamer.
The incoming updates will be detailed in the coming weeks, and would be preceded by a patch for the PC version on Valentine's Day, revealed DICE community manager Daniel Matros.
This week's PC update includes:
Battlefield 3 was released for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 in October. The game sold almost two million copies in its first month in the US alone.
Electronic Arts recently announced that the game had sold more than 10 million copies.
An iOS spinoff, titled Battlefield 3: Aftershock, was released on the App Store last week.
The multiplayer iOS shooter is a cross promotion between Battlefield 3 and the upcoming movie Act of Valor, with the game's single level inspired by the film.
