New Warhawk patch coming, Arbiters introduced

2007-10-22 11:46:00·  2 minute read   ·  Dale North@DaleNorth

The PlayStation Network multiplayer title Warhawk is seeing some improvements by way of a new patch, as well as with the introduction of in-game watchers called Arbiters.

The PlayStation Blog updates us on the upcoming v1.1 patch, coming at the end of October. The biggest fix is to some stats and connection issues that some players were experiencing. Also, the Max Clan limit has been upped from 32 to 64. 

Warhawk Arbiters have been put in place to fix cheating issues.

Dylan Jobe, Game Director for Warhawk, says, "We are also responding to complaints about wankers that are stat-padding, griefing or just messing with the Warhawk community in general. This is incredibly frustrating for players and we are not taking it lightly!!"

Arbiters are members of Warhawk's online services groups in both the US and Europe that will be watching over gamers, stats, and leaderboards, making sure that everyone plays nice. They will remain unnamed, but can call out players, sometimes even "rendering judgment." Arbiters can ban players, post comments about them in forums, blast players a warning email, and even wipe a player's stats clean. 

Hit the jump for a list of updates.
