The multiplayer action in Killzone 2 just keeps getting better and better; more downloadable content is on the way in the form of new map packs, and a new update has just gone live.
It's game update 1.28 and it features one of the last major requests from the KZ2 community: a detailed Join Game screen. We also get several repairs and bug fixes, plus support for the upcoming "Napalm & Cordite" map pack. With this update, players will be able to create games with the newest maps included in that pack: Suljeva, Cliffside, and Arctower Landing. As an added bonus, Guerrilla has added code support to allow the Flamethrower and Boltgun to appear in the multiplayer action, and of course, new Trophies will be featured for the "Napalm & Cordite" pack. But perhaps the biggest addition, as mentioned before, is that of the Join Game screen: you'll now be able to see the match settings for Friendly Fire, Custom Weapons and Custom Badges, and Faction Balancing, along with the basic info (game size, map, allowed Missions and Badges, etc.). From the start, fans of the Game of the Year contender had many suggestions to improve the online aspect and Guerrilla has come through in fine fashion. We can certainly expect more in the way of support as time goes on, and if you haven't given KZ2 a try since the game released, you're missing out on a fairly new experience.
Now, all we need is news on Killzone 3 , and we'll be all set. You know, how they're secretly preparing it for a holiday 2010 release…?
