Last week we told you that Section 8: Prejudice developer TimeGate Studios had just announced that the ‘Overdrive’ map pack DLC was on its way, and would be arriving on May 1st. However, it wasn’t only the DLC that was launched yesterday, as we’ve just received word that a patch was also released.
According to Richard Mitchell over at joystiq.com, the patch, which is available for both versions of the game (Xbox 360 and Windows), has tweaked and fixed several gameplay and stability issues. The autobalance has also been changed, and should now more aggressively try to place you with friends during matches.
What’s even more exciting is the announcement that there will be a double XP weekend this coming weekend, in order for players to celebrate the recent launch of the 2 new Section 8: Prejudice maps. The double XP weekend begins on Friday 3rd at 1AM EST, and will continue until Monday 6th at 1AM EST.
As noted over on the forums.timegate.com website, the recently released patch has also fixed a rare issue where a player’s controls would become unresponsive after they performed a fatality, as well as a rare lock-on crash that sometimes occurred during gameplay.
