'Painkiller' - v1.35 Patch Coming This Week

by Judy on Sept. 13, 2004 @ 5:30 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

A Dreamcatcher Europe community rep has put a post in the official forum that we can expect a new Painkiller patch later this week. Even though it is for the French version, we expect the English version to be available at the same time. People Can Fly is finalizing the v1.35 patch which will include the usual bug and crash fixes, but also the dedicated server update, and more importantly, the PainED SDK editor so people can start modding away. A full fix list is promised for tomorrow, and we will of course have the patch on our fileservers as soon as it becomes available.
