I started the game on my Platinum save and drove around. No visual changes that I could see, so yes I guess they had to overhaul a large chunk of code to get rid of those nasty bugs. I know my game crashed randomly from time to time so I'm glad if they fixed that because half-through the game my save was corrupted. Thank God I had a PS Plus cloud save back-up !!
Edit: When I now check my game and the patch-notes on my Pro it says:
Version 1.05 Online Services Update
whatever that means ?!

If there are no significant or obvious changes or visual enhancements, the only thing I can think of is that they are overwriting and streamlining some of the base code instead of just adding to it. Sometimes that's more efficient than just tacking on extra code.

13GB must contain data not just code. Code is small in comparison. So, maybe they changed the way it loads or compresses/decompresses/stream s assets?

I am impressed they still work on this game. There is hope for a Pro update?

There will be absolutely no bugs. The game is 100 percent perfect lol

Still, a little weird for a 4 year old game.

Maybe Bethesda knew people would be looking at that game to see how Rage 2 might turn out and payed for some bug fixes?

ramiuk1104d ago

only recently hit psn monthly games though hasnt it.3 month back?

Christopher104d ago

I'm going to assume a lot of that is audio file fixes that might have caused bugs in the game? Otherwise, just code fixes wouldn't run you much more than 1GB of an update.

Or DLC baked in waiting for an unlock key?

One of the best movie inspired games i played in years. There is a lot of room for improvement aswell as many options to make the sequel worth of GOTY.

Imagine multiplayer survival game where you compete against other players in custom made vehicles in either: races to the death; or in free free desert mode (with procedurally generated maps); taking down convoys together or just exploring long forgotten artifacts of lost civilization.

"or in free free desert mode (with procedurally generated maps); taking down convoys together or just exploring long forgotten artifacts of lost civilization."

If I would change only one word in that sentence; "convoys" to machines, you would effectively be describing HZD, that already exists, so wish granted, get it if you haven't already.

Jinger104d ago

Except Horizon isn't multiplayer and doesn't have death cars.

UltraNova104d ago (Edited 104d ago )


Relax dude..

Mr_GoolyPunch104d ago

Not procedurally generated maps either :)

UltraNova104d ago


Yet HZD is in part procedurally generated...

I agree , for me one the best movie to video game i ever played . Can not wait to see what they are doing with RAGE 2.

Just wanted to add that RAGE 2011 had the best vehicular competitive multiplayer combat i ever played . Really excited about AVALANCHE and ID Software working together .


So everyone agrees here. But essentially is Fallout 76. Hypocrisy.

Was just thinking about this game the other night; one of the best open world experiences I've played (and finished!) in the last few years.

I keep meaning to back and check out the 'endless' mode i heard about: you basically drive off the map and explore a procedurally generated expanse where you forage for supplies and take on other raiders - a true Mad Max experience.

pody104d ago

What?! That sounds awesome! Like a hidden survival game?

Concertoine104d ago

Okay, i remember the devs talking about this. Its not in the game. When you go to the edge of the map its just a storm that damages you.

That quote stuck with me too because it sounds awesome.

Jurat103d ago

Ah right; did you try it when you finished the campaign? I'm gonna boot it up tonight and check again (would love it to be true, but could just be an urban legend propagated by the fan community).
