Killzone 2 1.21 Patch Details


From the official forums:

Pending any unforseen problems, early next week patch 1.21 will be released. I’ll confirm the timings on Monday. The patch includes the following:

-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.

We are also working on the next updates and here are some of the areas we are exploring and investigating for the future patches:

-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 unexpectadly losing tournament rounds.
-Other minor fixes.

Now the above does not include the DLC updates that we are working on and they wont all come straight away, but I wanted to give you an idea of the areas we are exploring. If anything else pops up we will of course add that too More on future updates soon.

UPDATE: Something I noticed in the comments to this thread on the forum:


I have one question, is there any intent to expand on the ranking/award system further (possibly by adding more ribbons and medals). Maybe allowing players to unlock additional new weapons, maybe additional weapons and character skins, and other little things that can be earned as your keep accumulating points (past general rank) ?

Maybe.

Nice! That would add some longevity to the game.

    The patch is sweet, and so are the future patch plans, that hint of a party system.

    For added longevity, even imaginary ranks or signs that tell you how far you have gone could work.

    I’m glad to see GG fixing issues. I do find myself worrying why a developer who has had 4 years to complete a game is having to patch it so soon and so often.

    I would love to see more ribbons and medals included. It’s one of those things that would create a lot of future interest especially with COD Modern Warfare 2 coming in November.

    -Fix to Sensitivity setting where the weapon animation did not follow the reticule correctly.

    Finnally this bug really began to irritate me:O

    Well I am happy they update the game often, really hate it when good games don’t get updated.

    What will happend to the forums now that auto aim is gone ??
    Seriously the people has been going crazy about it like it was such a big issue, If you watch the video at youtube you can see that people that uses the exploit are crazy just because it turns the game unplayable.
    But GG has to work hard on the networking issues that are really getting people of the game.

    I hope theres a patch for the online random disconecting…. It’s driving me nuts! Today I couldn’t even sign in! But when I do manage to sign in it is great…… and then I disconect….. losing all my exp I got in the match! Also if 2 spawn points are put next to each other everyone respawns on them and die instantly, Its funning watching.
