Killzone 2 patch coming early next week

9:17 PM on 03.28.2009 // Brad Nicholson

A Guerrilla Games dev recently gave the Killzone 2 community the lowdown on a new patch, set to hit early next week, for the multiplayer portion of the game. The notable improvement among the tweaks and fixes is the addition of the option to create unranked games. Apparently, bots were being abused during ranked play.

Here’s a short list of the patch notes:

  • Increase of the standard points settings for Bodycount. Should ensure longer mode on heavily populated games.
  • The option to create unranked games. Players will be made aware that a game is unranked upon joining.
  • Fix to list of games displayed on search.
In addition to these details, the Guerrilla dev gave message board users a glimpse of what the studio are "investigating" for future patches. It appears that the absolutely flawless, awesome control scheme is still under analysis:
  • Controls. Seeing about giving more options.
  • More game options for clans
  • Improvements to help play with friends

He also mentioned that downloadable content is in the works. Normally, I would be excited, but it seems that DLC is implied after a multiplayer shooter is released.

Hit the break for the full list of possible future updates and patch 1.21 information.

Patch 1.21

  • Increase of the standard points settings for Bodycount. Should ensure longer mode on heavily populated games.
  • The return of Online Bots. Adding bots to an online game renders it ‘unranked’.
  • The option to create unranked games. Players will be made aware that a game is unranked upon joining.
  • Fix to Game Search functionality so correct maps are displayed.
  • Standardization of the Y-Axis controls on the HGH Scout when zoomed with the Sniper Rifle.
  • Fix to Sensitivity setting where the weapon animation did not follow the reticule correctly.
  • Fix for auto-aim exploit when rapidly tapping zoom/fire.
  • Fix to infrequent collision issues with C4 Proximity mines.
  • Fix to list of games displayed on search.
  • Stability fix relating to disconnect.
  • Fix to ‘Clan’ button functionality in custom game creation settings.


  • Controls. Seeing about giving more options.
  • Expanding on Join Game searches and options.
  • Improving game and network stability.
  • Collision exploits on maps.
  • Improvements to help play with friends.
  • More game creation options.
  • More game options for clans.
  • Fixes to Clans unexpectedly losing tournament rounds.
  • Other minor fixes.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]
