Last week we informed you that a PC Patch update was on the way for Crysis 2 to fix a problem with multiplayer keys, but now we can confirm that a separate patch has just gone live for the game, which adds and removes some notable features.
As for an update on the multiplayer key patch, Crytek has said that they are still working on it, but in the meantime a pretty major update is now available to download from BigDownload, and we have the list of changes for you, as reported from VG247.
Here are the patch notes for the Crysis 2 update:
Server Browser shows incorrect pings – Fixed
· Some matches never initiate – Fixed
· Faster text chat – As speedy as can be
· Console re-enabled – Console has been re-activated
· Cheat detection – Now in place to ensure all users are on a level playing field
· Fix USB headset issues — Current issues have been addressed and fixed
· Fix hologram icon staying on screen after being used – Fixed
· Remove Auto Aim – This has now been completely removed due to overwhelming community feedback
As you can see, the big talking point here is the fact that ‘remove auto aim’ is now gone. Obviously, there were complaints about this feature, as it made aiming in the game a lot easier for users who consider themselves beginners. Now that the feature has gone though, it should make multiplayer games much more competitive. PC shooters should all be about the mouse and keyboard aiming anyway, although we understand it may be needed for those who use gamepads plugged into the PC.
What are your thoughts on the changes – are you happy that auto aim is now gone? Is there anything which has been left off the list in your opinion? It’s interesting to add that Crytek has also implemented a ‘cheat detection’ feature into the game, which you may have something to say on.
