Medal of Honor: Warfighter's Day One Patch is Insanely Large

Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which launches today in North America, has an almighty day one patch.
Contained within is a whole bunch of bug fixes, some of which sound absolutely vital. You’re going to want to install this straight away. Indeed Danger Close “heartily encourages” it.
So why isn’t this content on the disc? Or more importantly, why wasn’t Medal of Honor: Warfighter finished before it was shipped to stores? We can only presume that Danger Close ran out of time and had to go gold in order to hit its schedule. A patch is its Get Out of Jail card.
It’s a worrying development, one made all the more notable by the sheer size of the patch. It may also go some way to explaining why reviews for the game have yet to materialise.
Because EA wouldn’t want us to review an unfinished game, would it?
Medal of Honor: Warfighter, or at least most of it, arrives in Europe on October 25th and the UK on October 26th.
