Guerrilla Games Release Two New Patches For KZ3, Will Enable Custom Games

Guerrilla Game’s released a post release patch for Killzone 3 as promised just before the game went on sale, and amongst an extensive list of other things, the new patch will re-enable a feature from Killzone 2: being able to customize your games as you wish.

There was also a patch that came on the day the game released. Find the full thing after the break.

- Support for colour-blind players

- Implement unranked custom games for players to create private or clan matches

- Enhanced custom games functionality that will allow players to control over games modes and settings; secure games, allowing you to invite the players you want to play with; the ability to prevent abilities and weapons from being used; toggling on and off functionality, such as ribbons, skills, explosives, etc; selecting which careers you want available to players; allow friendly fire to be turned on or off; faction switching enabled or disabled

- Separate turn speeds for hip-fire and ADS

- Overly enthusiastic death screams will be toned down

- Increased the amount of kills required to win a Guerrilla Warfare match

- Increased Accuracy ribbon will have its effectiveness lowered

- Likewise, the Bullet Damage ribbon will have its effectiveness lowered as well

- Matches will end if the other team forfeits (i.e. too few, or no players on the enemy team)

- Matchmaking enhancements that will close and merge games based on player count, which will keep games more full

- Balance factions out by moving players to the other team at the end of the match if one team is lopsided

- The ability to turn off HUD markers for point pop-ups and objectives

- A menu option to allow squad-only chat

- The addition of a Mute All button

- Scoreboard flickering will be fixed

- Clans will no longer get matched against other clans that have many more players than they do (i.e. 4 vs. 7, 5 vs.

- These changes come in addition to already fixed issues, such as server stability and network errors.

According to a post on the Killzone blog, this list of improvements “is just the beginning”.
