We were all emailed today about the first patch. From the email:
Well, what can we say, TODAY IS THE DAY!!! Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars is finally here! After 7 years of waiting and ridiculous amounts of speculation, sweating, nerve-wrecking Kane defying OMFG its finally here, yea yea yea, alright, look, just make sure you pinch yourself again because it really is true, Command & Conquer is BACK!
As you may have expected from the teaser on our website we are indeed publishing a day 1 patch TODAY which will address some very important fixes and exploits. I also want to note that we are already working on patch 1.02 which will technically be our first major patch with balance changes, more bug fixes, added maps, etc, and more than like, alternate mouse setup. That is slated for late April. But today...you get to download patch 1.01 :o)
IMPORTANT NOTE: We have made an option in patch 1.01 that will allow you to turn off the Kane Edition skins if you'd like. This is purely a matter of preference, so if you want the normal skins, download the patch and have at it!

For those of you have have the game already, that's definitely something to get. The second patch is currently due out in about a month.
