Guerrilla Details KZ3 Version 1.04

Killzone 3 is here and quite a few are enjoying their time online. But improvements can always be made.

Some time soon, when you go to boot up Guerrilla's latest gem, you'll find yourself downloading version 1.04, which has been detailed over at the game's official site. There's a big list for both Changes & New Functionality and Bug Fixes, which means our KZ3 experience will get even better. You can view the full lists through the link but here's a quick sample of the highlights:

Changes & New Functionality

  • Network - Lag fixes and fixes for network errors 10002, 8001 and 8013
  • Gameplay - Players now have more stamina by default. Sprint length is increased but the recharge timer has been adjusted to compensate
  • Gameplay - Mortally wounded players no longer have collision. Alive players should now be able to traverse the levels without getting stuck on mortally wounded players
  • Medic's revive cool-down reduced from 25 to 10 seconds
  • Gameplay - Increased range from where friendly players can be revived - player can be revived from 20 meters now
  • Menu - Rewards panel in post game screen now auto-scrolls
  • Botzone is now paused when player goes to start menu
  • Menu - Enhanced idle detection code in menu, the player isn’t spawned if he’s still pressing buttons

Bug Fixes

  • Stability – Fix for an occasional crash bug when in the Credits screen and transitioning straight into Multiplayer via a Invite
  • Gameplay - Player can retain crouched collision after deploying jetpack
  • Gameplay - Global - Medic’s Triage droids now disappear when player quits out of game
  • Gameplay - Cloak/Disguise cannot be removed manually by accident anymore
  • Gameplay – Fix for Silent Footsteps remaining active after choosing other skill and removed from the personal stats menu
  • Trophies - DLC 1 ‘Little Big Weapons’ Trophy does now counts rocket launcher and StA2
  • Clan functionality – Fix for player quitting and re-joining a tournament, they may re-enter a tournament alone
  • Menu - Friends: Fix for Clan tags being displayed for a max of nine players despite the number of player that are in the clan
  • Menu - When receiving a squad invite from a player in another match, there is now a warning that the player will leave his current game

There are lots of others, too. As is the case with most any online portion of game, it should just get better and better over time.

Why don't they implement custom music? I loved listening to Lamb of God while playing Killzone 2. Anyone else agrees; or is it just me?

Actually I agree. I was pretty disappointed that there were no custom tracks in KZ3. I didn't use it all the time but it was cool, especially when I didn't feel like chatting with anyone

I played KZ2 with Rotterdam Terrorcore - some wicked European techno, but I have new music on my new PS3 and I loaded up KZ3 with fingers crossed....sad face... Glad about the changes though, one of my beefs is the little impossible spots the assassination target can hide in, it seems on some maps they are a little lopsided like Helghast on Pyrrhus Crater, ISA on Mawler Graveyard and Frozen dam hmmm maybe it does equal out when you think of multiple games... does anyone think one faction has an advantage over the other?

I need a squad as well. No one I know will buy Killzone. They will, however, buy 15 dollar map packs for a certain inferior FPS.

I know I'm late to this thread but I haven't figured out the benefits of being in a squad. You can't spawn-on squad mates and there is no squad-only chat.

I was actually really surprised to hear about the errors. I usually am on the bad end of things when it comes to these errors. But, surprisingly, I haven had a single error with the game yet... (knock on wood)
Hopefully the fix comes soon though, because I know what its like to not be able to play. It really sucks

I've had a couple hitches, but not enough to even really irritate me. This is easily the best online shooter I've played in quite a while (2nd to KZ2, with SOCOM in 3rd).

My only hitch has been during the server maintenance the other night. Once playing a game, I've never had a single promlem.

I'm glad they are increasing the field medics revival distance... but I don't like reviving much in this game simply because it takes away your freedom to move. I wish it were more like killzone 2 where you were able to whip out you medic gun.
The changes are certainly welcome. I haven't wanted to play a game this much since killzone 2.

Anyone here knows about the fight between LG and Sony over the blu-ray patent? What is the status of that thing now?

Last I heard LG stopped the selling of PS3s in Europe for 10 days. They halted the shipping and any that get through are stopped by customs.

as someone who plays medic as my main these changes are greatly welcome. Having to be on top of the guy was a little lame, plus the cooldown was terribly long. If you revived someone and another guy died, you had to hope for another medic and hold out for half a minute almost.

That being said I usually had some beast scores as a medic, so I can only assume they will go up with this fix =)

My friend got KZ3 the other day looks pretty awesome but he wouldn't let me play at all!!! He can forget about me buying him R3 for Christmas this year!

For those who got KZ3 how is the mp compared to other fps? I liked the beta but only for less then a week and kinda forgot about it. Does it have vehicles this time? I find it boring when mp fps don't have vehicles.

No vehicles, but they have 2 maps with Mechs and 1 with Jetpacks. That Jetpack level (T Concourse SS) can be either fun or the worse experiene ever. The MP is good though.

My game is always freezing coming out of MP matches and I always get one error for fullroom. Those crashes though are odd for an PS3 exclusive. Can't wait to download this patch and maybe KZ3 will stop playing mind games with me...lol

Well hopefully this fixes game crashing when the host quits. This has only happend to me twice but both times it was towards the successful end of a 15+min game of of warzone. And when it does happen you lose all of the xp you gained durring the mission. It kinda threw me off of warzone. But I'm perfectly happy playing operations

I've been getting the errors and they are annoying. Having said that, the multiplayer is just plain awesome!!! Blows COD out of the water in my opinion. Besides the errors of course. It's an absolute pleasure to look at and the gameplay is just soooo good!!! I play as the tactician and it's a blast. Trying to take over different spawn points gets uber epic!!! The move controller is preferred method of play and its absolutely fantastic. They did a wonderful job of implementing the move controller aside from the steep learning curve. My 3d tv is on the way and i can't wait to see this gem in 3d. Bravo GG for making one of the best shooters this gen has seen!!!

That's the truth. The gameplay is damn near perfect and the MP, once getting used too it...is phenomunal. I still wish the story was more original and the ending was better.

Surprisingly, I'm spending more time with KZ3 online than what I would've expected beforehand. A handful of these new improvements will be appreciated.

Dammit, i read all the comments and was hoping another human being felt like I do so I dont get fellow PSXer's trying to skin me alive but sadly.. very sadly.. I am bored with the MP. And I didnt even play it that hardcore at launch. I will say its the best looking fps I have ever seen, and that It has the best gameplay of any fps I have ever touched as well. huge compliments.. but heres where it gets ugly.. I am a big freak about my KD ratio. I am by far not GOOD, but if it falls below at least 1.02 i get kinda irritated, so I find myself playing the same class over and over simply cause it nets me the most points for leveling, and i almost never finish with less kills than deaths. Maybe its why I am so bored but having so few guns to choose from is really making KZ3 stale for me. I know, I am crazy.. (feels the thumbs downs pile up)

You should use that to strive to be better, If i am in a tough match with very good players i stay in that match to become better and learn how they play and implement that into my game play.
