During the week we noticed that Resistance 3 received a release day patch, numbered v1.01, well now it has a second patch available for you to download.
Insomniac Games has apologised in advance for having two large patches this close to launch, however the developer cites the feedback from the Public Beta, and this is what makes up most of the patch, although there are a few small fixes for the single player campaign within the patches.
Here’s the details of the latest v1.02 patch:
-Players should no longer get into “dead” games that don’t operate correctly -Improvement in framerate/lag -Matchmaking fixes -Fewer players floating / clipping through environment -Fix for freezing/crashing issues if you join a game as it is ending -Can no longer leave party while in a co-op game (was causing a crash) -Party fixes dealing with multiple invites, co-op -Some SFX in St. Louis have been cleaned up -Broadway map now loads games correctly -Fixed issues when late-joining a campaign co-op game -Multiple fixed issues on Chapter 13 in co-op -Female voice over will now play for female skins in MP -Player using Hazmat ability will no longer appear to catch fire or freeze -Other various lobby, menu, co-op and multiplayer fixes
We are still working hard here to reduce lag / framerate issues that you see in the game. We have another patch already in the works to continue addressing new issues we’ve seen since launch, though many of these issues may be improved by the fixes in patch 1.02. Those issues include:
-Lag/Server sync issues -Framerate drops and hitches -Games where players cannot capture the flag/destroy a Node/etc.
Resistance 3 is out today. In our review we describe it as “Excellent,” saying, “The main campaign as lengthy, solid and action packed as the multiplayer is addictive.” In other words, if you have a PS3 don’t miss this game.
