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.

Future:

  • 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.
