Killzone 3 Patch 1.07 Tomorrow Adds Custom Games
According to the official Killzone.com Forums, the 1.07 patch will go live tomorrow April 6th, for all territories.
With this patch, Phase one of two, announced Custom Game Patches, will be implemented. This first phase will allow a player to create a private match and determine settings, such as the “Game Mode”, the “Map”, and even the “Missions” and the “Mission Time” for Warzone game mode. To see what else is included in this patch, as well as some details for Phase 2 of the Custom Games Patch, hit the jump.
I know you want to be informed as much as possible. So I’m writing up the preliminary patch notes for Patch 1.07.
Please Note: this is subject to change and we don’t know exactly when this will go live yet. I will inform you on that as soon as we can, but we are trying to roll this out in the first week of April.

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 of Custom Games gives players the option to create unranked games with the choice of:
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 donâ€™t get an invite to these games wonâ€™t be able to join through matchmaking.
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
That’s it for now!
