Hallelujiah! Two Great Patches On the Way!

Posted in News, Online, PS3, Xbox 360 with tags , , on January 23, 2009 by richinjapan

According to PS3Fanboy, there are two great patches on their way in the next two weeks. Listen up!

First up, Resistance 2. Many people have been slapped in the face with a bug that resets their level back to the beginning, but the fix is on the way — as in, this coming Monday (Jan 26). Even better is the news that the XP data was never actually lost, so the patch will bring back your original levels, as well as adding that to the XP you’ve gained since the bug hit. The patch will also include various tweaks to gameplay/ammo, trophies/medals, and match-making/clan support.

Next up, on February 3, Criterion continues their relentless support of Burnout Paradise with a patch adding many long-awaited features. Cheif among them? THE ABILITY TO RESTART RACES! I swear, this game just keeps getting better and better. It’s enough to make you wish you hadn’t played it before, just to experience all this stuff at once. Other improvements include better night driving, balancing to several game modes, and improved handling to make the game more friendly to new-comers.

Rejoice, my friends. Rejoice. And while you’re at it, check out the links to see the detailed update info.
