Killzone 2 Patch is in the Works

March 2, 2009 Written by Richard Allen

killzone2visarihelghastKillzone 2 online multi-player is intense and very satisfying.  However it is not 100% perfect, bot issue aside, the game runs great. The developers are on top of the feedback and are working on a patch. This patch will take care of some smaller issues in order to boost gameplay quality. It looks like the bots will be back in some capacity. No word on a release date as of this time.

Boost
We’ve identified and fixed the bug to do with the boost medal not being awarded.  It will go into a patch we are working on at present, but there is a workaround in the mean time to get it.  Simply ensure that you are the Game Creator rather than client and you’ll be awarded it.

Network Errors/Honor Ranks
We are also looking at fixing a good bunch of the network errors and are looking into the complaints about the Honor Ranks as well as a couple of other bits and pieces.  We’ll provide a list of fixes when we are close to releasing the patch.

Bots
We’re working on a permanent solution for the bots stat padding and have some internal solutions that we’re going to work on implementing.  We’ll let you know what those are when we’ve got the patch together and the solution implemented.
We will NOT be wiping ALL stats and padders will be looked at individually by the moderators.

www.killzone.com
www.killzone.com is being sorted out today to deal with the massive traffic its been facing and hope to have some long-term solutions in place shortly.
The stats are currently empty on the site and will be repopulated today.

Controller Issues
We have not stopped looking into the complaints and will see what we can do about it.  Any possible changes will have to be carefully implemented and tested before being deployed though.

Charge disarming
We have identified the issue where sometimes the C4 charge in Search and Destroy will not disarm.  Will be fixed with the next update.

Shotgun Aim Assist
Investigating the problem and will patch it up.

Clan Games
Sometimes the clan that does not turn up for a match is awarded the win under specific circumstances.  Will be patched ASAP.

Battle Replay for Map 8 – Corinth Crossing
The BR on www.killzone.com is not quite right and will be fixed soon.

Ignore list
Was found not to be functioning correctly.  Will be fixed in the next patch.

Crashes
Crash when using Saboteur disguise in certain situations.  Will be fixed in the next patch.
Infrequent crash when trying to start a game with an empty game name.  Will be fixed soon.

Medic/Assassination
There is an issue with the Assassination target HUD icon displaying when playing as a Medic.  Investigating and will be fixed.
