Killzone 3 patch out tomorrow, adds custom games

Guerrilla Games is releasing a new patch for Killzone 3 tomorrow, adding the ability to create custom matches. This patch actually brings part one of two major custom match updates, with the first allowing you to choose modes, maps, missions and invites. 

The patch also brings with it a host of bug fixes, some new control options for PlayStation Move, and a number of multiplayer gameplay tweaks. You can see the full list below. 

I love how much support Guerrilla is giving the game, but I stopped playing due to the refusal to separate DualShock 3 and Move users. I fear this is going to be a running trend with multiplayer PS3 games, and it just makes me not want to stick to Xbox Live and PC for all my online needs.

Explanation of Custom Games

Custom Games will be rolled out in 2 patches. This one (1.07) and a future patch. We don't know when this will be yet.

PHASE ONE

Phase One of Custom Games gives players the option to create unranked games with the choice of:

- Game Mode

- Map

- Missions (Warzone only)

- Mission Time (Warzone only)

- Invite Squad members

- Invite Enemy Squad Leader

This gives players the ability to create private matches, and playing with and against friends or a rival clan for instance. People who don't get an invite to these games won't be able to join through matchmaking.

PHASE TWO

We still need to spec this out, so this is subject to change, but we are looking to add the options of choosing:

- More configuration options for missions in Warzone and Operations

- Adjustable kill count for Guerrilla Warfare

- Configurable Unlocks (choose which one you want to play with)

- Configurable Classes (choose which one you want to play with)

- Configurable Weapons, Abilities, Skills, Ribbons

- Friendly Fire On/Off

- Brutal Melee On/Off

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.
