TheGamerAccess.com would like to inform you that the latest Killzone 2 patch is now live. Read More to find what changes 1.28 brings with it.
The Napalm & Cordite map pack coming this Thursday will be what gets me back on Killzone 2. I cannot wait to play online with the flamethrower and most importantly the Bolt Gun. I would have to say the Bolt gun is one of my favorite guns of all time if not my favorite.
yep, this new maps is great.
for me it's the electric machinegun. The re-load animation for that gun is outstandingly incredible lol.
Electric gun? thought the only new weapons going to be released with the map pack were the flamethrower and the bolt gun o.o
yeah no electric gun right now it seems, which is probably good...as you didn't even have to aim that thing...seeing the ridiculous death animations from that gun in the single player was unstoppable though... I'm interested to see what happens with these new weapons in MP though...the bolt gun was very powerful, but pretty fair as it was difficult to aim at distance...the flame thrower was good too, as its limited range made it only useful up close in tight areas...but in MP i'm wondering how it works...will the bolt gun be a one hit kill?...and once set on fire will you continue to burn until you are dead?...there is just a lot up in the air about it right now... 1.28 is awesome though...got a few hours in earlier today...the new medic gun bolt is completely awesome, wish it was like that all along...i was running around as a medic non stop just to watch it...and the server profiles are PERFECT now...its what we wanted since the beta...the game is still my go to MP right now anyway, glad to see its still being touched up regularly...
Can't wait for this map pack. The online keeps me coming back over and over again. Mainly for the clan battles. So much fun.
I was playing a couple of nights ago. I'll probably have a go at it later.
I haven't tested the control fixes yet, are they noticeable?
Trust me when I say, IT'S A HUGE DIFFERENCE from the original controls, in regards to the sensitivity. It's how the game should have been in the first place. When I originally got the game (day 1) I love it but I was frustrated with the sensitivity of the controls (always over shooting my target). I finished the single player & tried the multi-player but I couldn't get hardly any kills because my aim was that bad. I played for several weeks and then let it collect dust. However, I decided to give it another go when the 1.27 patch was released and man, there hasn't been a day gone by that I haven't played it! That's how good the patch is!
they bundle them all together like they did with the warhawk maps.
yeah the control fixes do make the game controls much better. get yourself a x-battle adaptor and a wired 360 pad to use with, and trust me...it's even better again. as long as you like the 360 pad that is.
im fighting visari on elite and theres alot of glitches after the update. particularly the floor is now a shiny metal texture and the higs get stuck by visari.
Air support is once again a waste. yay.
I liked the old controls! I would overshoot for the first five minutes everyday, waving my gun back and forth, but after that it would come back and I'd be slaughtering again. Now the noobs will be good without a rocket launcher!
No more buck rodgers health gun. They changed it, now it resembles lightning. Nice little touch. @Edge of blade They fixed Air support in the last patch. They are as strong as the ground turrets FAIL
cool thing then, I been busy with BF1953 then it's time to buy the new maps
yeah 1.28 tweaks it a bit more too I think...haven't seen it confirmed, but the motion blur seems a little less drastic possibly because of some further optimization to the online code...it just looks a little bit smoother to me while turning with high sensitivity...it was very smooth before, but now it seems even a bit more... but the 'high precision' option does make a pretty big difference...some like it...some hate it...at first I didn't like it because I was so used to the 'heavy' feeling of the original dead zones...but it makes a MASSIVE difference when using iron sights...before it was nearly impossible to keep a bead on someone at range that was moving across your screen...now you can do it without even thinking about it... it changed the game a lot though...which is a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it...being that some maps are so big, the new controls put a whole lot more vulnerability to each player from bigger differences...guys that are good with the STA 11 can now pick you off from several hundred yards without even trying, even if you are boosting all over the place... i suggest using it and just getting used to it...as it makes you better at range with nearly any weapon...the rocket launcher users claim it makes it too touchy, but I don't get half a shat what those guys think...as those weapons still suck anyway...
Can't wait to use boltgun wooo :D
Really nice update
I got the update this morning. There is more information when searching servers now like if there is friendly fire or badges turned on or off.
I've been want that since the game launched. I didn't think they actually do it though.
I'm so glad that came with the new update. I was tired of punching in the game specifics in the title of the server. Now all we need is a damn party system.
If they were to add a "true" party system similar to how Infinity Ward did it with Call of Duty 4, that would make the online experience 100% better and more enjoyable. It is a stuggle half of the time to get into a game with a friend before the room is full. If we had a party system, that would not be a problem although Guerilla Games stated awhile back that a party system would not work well considering how they designed the online experience. They need to focus on getting it worked out somehow.
and yeah a party system would make things a little easier joining friends agree 100%
yeah it sucks that there is no 'real' party system...we were told it was because of the way Killzone 2 uses dedicated servers...but i don't buy that, as Resistance 2 also used dedicated hosting servers...and has THE best party system in a game to date...it was mostly overlooked I bet...and wasn't addressed early on in developing the online code...and now too much needs to be changed in order to get one to work...Killzone 3 will have it though, i guarantee that... fyi though CoD 4 does not use dedicated servers...a player hosts every single online match...believe me, if killzone 2 used a host/client system in that fashion...it would be unplayable...we get access to 32 player matches with so much shat going on at once it will make your head hurt...but were denied a user friendly party system for random games (the party system for clan matches is perfect though)...it does suck, but you can't have everything I guess...
Why is everybody disagreeing with Nick? He's absolutely right and right along the lines of what I was thinking.
Oh man its so on tonight. there has to be more info than that on this patch. i'll wait for official news from the playstationblog.
Can't wait to get home and have at it!
Yeah mine updated last night. Then when getting into multiplayer it froze - twice. After the second time wasting freeze I turned it off and fired up Gears of War 2.
You switched your games. Think before you type please. :)
What the hell is there to think about. KILLZONE 2 FROZE...TWICE. Yeah I know which disk goes in which system.
I can assure you, no one cares.
If you comment you care.
I only care to assure you that no one cares.
You still care.
>I only care to assure you that no one cares. one of the best comments I have ever read. Top class :)
dude, the green cases go with the white box and the smaller cases that have a big ps3 on the side go into the big black box, okay: 0
Obviously I have both systems and I know how to use them. KILLZONE 2 froze.
people are too harsh on here :p
Who says, "KZ2 keeps freezing! So I put in Gears of War 2!" That's reeks of fanboyism... but whatever...lol. I personally havent had any PS3 game freeze on me except for Fallout 3...I believe ps3 games can freeze though...just dont believe THIS guy :)
my roommate bought Halo 3...put the disc in...his 360 froze...permanently...so we played warhawk...THAT reeks of fanboyism...sucks that it is still a true story... wait though, what are we talking about?...
Warhawk is still amazing. Still having epic games with that. Just thought I would throw that in there.
hey want me to pay $10 Oz again ??? Talk about slipping it in, from nowhere, again ! So far, 6 maps for 1/4th the price of the full game ? (or a 1/3rd depending where purchased) Micro-transactions suck. OT : Actually, what is it with the word micro ? For some reason, micro means BIG business. Know what I'm saying? Nano-Limp . BTT Anyway GG, great game, great Capcom.
Killzone 2 maps are not a "microtransation". A MT is like $.50 t-shirts in HOME. This is a transaction.
I always though MT referred to the publisher side...where like Sony or MS would charge the software owner/publisher $.10 per download of something that is on the PSN...not so much for stuff that an end user would actually buy... in either case...yeah...micro-transactio ns are always something very cheap individually, with clear goal of having that individual 'sale' happening millions of times...
This and the Steel and Titanium maps should have been there since launch but I can understand the 2 throwback maps being DLC. I am a little sick of them keep offering maps from the game that I feel should have just been included. But oh well what can you do.
sounds good. That was one of my only gripes about the game. There are too many dumb people that make rooms.
i would just take a gamble after running some radec academy tourneys. i really like a full warzone game with all weapons and badges but sometimes the game can be 120 minutes of time i dont have. I like rocket launchers. i dont use them but i like how people rely on them and when you dodge the missile how afraid they react. they even boost with thier backs towards me those pu$$ies. I like that spawn greanades have no invicibity. it makes so much more sence and it really makes a bad tactician look like the dumbest bum that ever existed. i always warn people not to spawn there while i watch in the cam the retards who dont listen get mowed down by LMGs, bots and mounted machine guns. Oh man! Killzone 2 is sooooo goooood!
Will definitely be playing tonight.
I argued with a guy just today that implied no one plays Killzone 2 anymore. Just goes to show you.
you just bursted his bubble. maybe you meant you wished there was a electric gun in MP? either way, i got flames and bolts coming and if i need some electric boogey in my life, i'll just run infamous ha ha ha ha! im quite the salesman.
Oh, so gears is perfect with online? Talk about a mess of glitches, lag and freezing.
The Napalm & Cordite map pack coming this Thursday will be what gets me back on Killzone 2. I cannot wait to play online with the flamethrower and most importantly the Bolt Gun. I would have to say the Bolt gun is one of my favorite guns of all time if not my favorite. If you like to play Killzone 2 lets all purchase this DLC pack to support Guerilla Games. If we keep supporting them with our money, they will keep supporting us with their great content.
Even more excited for these than for the maps. I wish they would have been in the MP since launch but better late than never.
I would buy them, but Sony still didn't give me a PS Store to buy it from. :-(
"Detailed information screen when browsing games. Items displayed include: Friendly Fire, Faction Balancing, Custom Weapons and Custom Badges as well as the region, game size, selected maps and allowed Missions and Badges." This is so basic and should have been in the game from the start, better late than never. I'm so close to platinum this game, just a few annoying ribbons and I'm there, god, i hate those ribbons.
w00t killzone 2 all day...everyday
are they going to bundle the maps becuase I dont want to get them al separetely. Imo its not really worth it atm..
If they make a good discount for buying the 3 DLCs at once I will get it then. For now I am satisfied by only playing on the original maps that came with the game. I am not a fun of DLCs but I got the one for Resistance 2 and then I could rarelly play on those maps since little number of players had then. GG MUST make a promotion price on those DLCs so most of the owners of a KZ2 game will get interested on buying those things and will be easier for every one to play on the new maps.
Where are you when we need you. Just joking people.
good buy n4g
Could GG make you able to throw the grenades back at the person that threw it to you?
The way grenades are thrown good luck trying to see were they threw the grenade, before it even blows up in yur face.
I'm sure they're going to be updating much more on a constant basis.
I'm going to have to check this out. If they got the controls right now and what I here about being able to use a 360 pad on the PS3 is correct, My list of reasons not to buy a PS3 just got real short. Come on Sony knock $150 off and you got me. That is MY price and it is firm. Take out wi-fi, usb ports, coloring for the plastic, anything that is not absolutely necessary to play games and drop the price. I have spoken, so expect a price drop and hardware revision announcement from Sony soon.
are all x-mens this stupid? oh wait.
it's probably better you stick to whatever your playing on now. there is a reason it cost more than the 360 ya know.
...Some of the Halo stuff. Charge for it during the first month then make it a mandatory free download for everyone who doesn't buy it. This way you keep the community together. I still play ALL 4 of the new maps. I always set up rotations with them included.
