Hello there Starhawk fans! We're pleased to let you know that the 1.01.001 patch is now available for the game, and you'll be promoted to download it the next time you play. This is the patch we talked about on the blog last week, which includes a number of gameplay balance adjustments based on the feedback we've received from you. Here's a link to the full patch notes in case you haven't had a chance to see what's included yet.
The 1.01.001 patch also includes the new region flag, which lets you see where a host is located before you enter the game. Here's a peek at what the new region flag looks like in the server list:
We're also happy to announce that we've got another patch tentatively scheduled for TOMORROW which will address some of the stability issues in the game. We've heard that the game is crashing/freezing for some people, and tomorrow's patch will address those issues in particular. We're also implementing a set of tools to better address network stability and isolate connection issues, which is a big step towards eradicating the disconnection/not found errors.
Beyond that, we're still working on new content and gameplay balances. The first of our free map packs is still coming and we're going to have more information on that soon. We're also planning new gameplay tweaks to help with the balance of the Flak Cannon and bring the Bruiser skill into better line with the rest of the game. In addition, we're working extensively with Sony's network infrastructure to help isolate the issue some people are seeing with mics cutting out in order to resolve that as soon as possible.
Thank you everyone for your support of Starhawk. We'll see you on the battlefield!
