It seems as though the two new maps and global servers that we were supposed to get by the end of May (today), won’t be available until June 7th. The maps are ready to go but it seems SCEA needed more time to make sure the global servers were ready to handle 1000s of people all heading for the damn LAARK!
SCEA’s Greg Phillips:
The map pack has completed the approval process, and the content update is in the final day of testing worldwide.
The DLC, itself, is on track and ready to go as promised by Insomniac back in March. The reason for the delay is we (SCEA) needed a little extra time to get the global servers locked in and ready for thousands of players to come knocking. We would rather have a short delay and continue to deliver on our over the top, online experience.
So, on June 7th get ready to invade the new maps and LAARK someone in Europe from the confines of your couch on the West Coast. Of course, you can still expect other enhancements to the online experience.
I can wait another week.
A question for you Resistance players in North America. Do you guys have the same problems that we Europeans do with scumbags that surround/camp re-spawn points in Team games and kill you as soon as you re-spawn? Again and again and again. It seems to be the same clans and people that stoop to what I class as cheating.
It’s even worse when it happens in Grimsby and you’re human with the opposing team as Chimera.
It usually happens when people quit from the team leaving you outnumbered. I seriously hate people that do that (re-spawn campers and quitters) and I often send them a message after the game saying as much with a few choice words thrown in.
I also dislike people that constantly use the LAARK. I’ve faced people that only use that weapon during games and when I’ve caught them LAARKless, I’ve had no problem taking them out.
You don’t even need to be hit by a rocket from the LAARK to be killed!!!
Oh yeah, Chimera are superior to Humans. 8)
