Guerrilla Games’ Killzone 3 may have received some pretty impressive reviews since launching last month, but a few nagging issues have left some online players frustrated. The developer responded by releasing a patch for the game, which was meant to have fixed all the issues.
However, according to a recent article by Jonathan Leack over on the playstationlifestyle.net website, the patch (v1.04) appears to have created more issues. Many gamers have reported major problems since downloading the patch a couple of days ago.
Among the problems that users have been experiencing are disconnections mid-game, severe lag and network connection problems, which makes it very hard to join a game. Guerilla Games has now stated that they are currently working on addressing the said issues.
The new v1.04 patch is said to include fixes for both lag and network errors 8001, 8013 and 10002, as well as a fix for an incorrect message that occurred when players were attempting to join a Clan game that an online friend was currently playing in.
It also includes improvements to the Killzone 3 gameplay. For example, players are now said to have more stamina by default, the sprint length has been increased — although the recharge timer has been adjusted to compensate — and the range in which friendly players can be revived has been increased.
