Killzone 2 Patch 1.24 Detailed

We all know about the Steel & Titanium Map Pack that's coming for Killzone 2 - it'll be available for download on April 30 - but Guerilla has more updates to issue.

It's patch 1.24, which will enable support for the aforementioned DLC pack and also adds three additional ranks to the top of the list; they're known as "Hardcore Ranks." It also boasts a few "minor improvements" that will enhance the AI, Campaign mode, Clan options and more. For instance, there's a potential bug on the Salamun Bridge in the Campaign that will be fixed, and there are more than a few Exploits that are gonna disappear. There's a funny one where the player can actually gain access to the palace roof if they respawn in a certain area when fighting Radec. Then there's a crazy incomplete wall in the Salamun Market that lets the opposition see and shoot you through the transparent obstruction. Then there are a bunch of new features, and if you want to see 'em all, just head on over to the official PlayStation forums. There, Seb "MotherH" Downie fills us in on all the details, and that list that encompasses the patch is quite lengthy. Now, where's our co-op, damnit?! Oh right, they've already decided it's not a good idea.

Anyway, if you're still having a blast with KZ2, you're likely more than ready to get an update like this and that Steel & Titanium pack will help a great deal, too.

Speaking of "hardcore"...

There needs to be a mode similar to the aforementioned namesake in KZ2 multiplayer..

Im extremely pleased to hear about the removal of exploits in the online stages. I just played a game a few days ago and had an unpleasant encounter with a group of glitchers, 3 to be exact, and i was pretty disappointed.

I have played more than a few games where i had simply stopped playing them because of the amount of glitchers and this is one i refused to give up. Never thought i would ever have to report anyone till that time.

Im pretty happy about the new ranks as well

Awesome, this will get me playing again. Whenever I pick it up now I get killed like 7 times before I even get a shot off at anyone :P Okay, maybe not all the time, but it feels that way. Now I have something to play for since I'll be able to rank up further. The only other thing I want is the air-bots to be stronger and/or more effective.

I hope they fix the movement, and thats it! the last patch was suppose to make the cross-hairs movement more fluid etc... but from my point of view it sucks! Anyways online is great/fun. I wish they add CO-OP.

I like the game the way it is. I am seriously getting kind of sick and tired of everybody talking about co-op.The game is awesome without it.

might give me a reason to pick it up again. platinumed it about a week and half ago and had EU ranking of about 19,000 overall but maybe need to work on that especially with dlc coming.

I have never been able to figure out how glitchers can sit for hours jumping up against walls and rubbing along objects to glitch stuff, where do they find the time and or patience to do it...

are they making elite easier?
ive been on the cruser lvl for over a month now and cant get past it because youve got to stop 2 enemies from shooting you from the frount behind left and right.
its ridiculous you need 5 pairs of eyes and 5 pair of arms to get past that lvl.
its a miricle my ps3 TV and controller are still working.
if i can finish COD W@W resistance 1 and 2 Uncharted drakes fortune basicly every game on the highest difficulty why not this.
its driving me nuts only this trophy and the top 1% are holding me back from my fith plat
