'Resistance: Fall of Man' (PS3) Gets Patched

by Rainier on Dec. 26, 2006 @ 6:10 a.m. PST

In Resistance: Fall of Man, the U.S. and Britain band together in a last-ditch effort to save Europe and Asia from a horrific scourge. In mere decades, the Chimera – a species of unknown origin propagating a virus that converts other life forms into more Chimera – has overrun Russia and all of Europe. Humanity’s hope for survival is slim, and the tide of the battle rests on the shoulders of U.S. Army Ranger, Sgt. Nathan Hale.

Resistance: Fall Of Man is a PS3 exclusive gripping first-person action game set in a frightening, alternate 20th century reality, delivering a thoroughly believable world that blends epic military action and unnerving horror. Utilizing its signature creative style, Insomniac Games has created a truly next-generation experience featuring smarter enemies, a wide variety of horrifying creatures, physics-based weaponry, playable vehicles and highly detailed, diverse environments. Players will be challenged online and offline as Resistance: Fall of Man delivers an engaging single player campaign, a co-operative mode and one of the most complete multiplayer offerings in a console game.

Multiplayer Patch 23.12.06

Ranked Games

  • Mission 14 is fixed
  • BCD control fix
  • Tistlegorm mission fix
  • mailbox log fix
  • some small bugs
  • video comics playback fix

General

  • Added a game option to allow "map voting", which will allow players in a custom game to vote on a new map from the results screen
  • Expanded tactical element of squads. In objective based team games (CTF, Meltdown, Breach), players will be able to select to spawn near their squad as well as all the previously available spawn points. Additionally, squad members will be displayed different on the map/radar so that you will be able to find them easier
  • We've improved the spawning algorithm to prioritize spawn points that are away from enemies and near teammates and squadmates
  • Wins/Losses are now displayed on the character sheet
  • We have replaced the Skeleton skin with a new skin, the Mechanic. We've determined that the Skeleton is much smaller and more difficult to see on many levels than any of the other skins. The skins were never meant to give a gameplay advantage, but to offer you the chance to customize your character as you see fit, and we don't want people to be at a disadvantage because they didn't pick any one particular skin. Never fear, the skeleton may make a return at some later date, in some form or other.

Balance

  • Chimeran rage damage multiplier has been reduced.
  • Chimera at max heat will now only lose health until they are at 50% health instead of going all the way down to 1% health.
  • Humans will now spawn with 1 frag grenade as well as the M5A2 Carbine
  • Enemies will now show up on the Human map/radar if they are within radar range of ANYONE ON YOUR TEAM and only in the following circumstances: They are sprinting or in rage mode, they are firing/attacking, they are jumping, or they are within range of node radar (Breach)
  • Most weapon damage values have been tweaked in the interest of balance. In general, weapons have been tweaked to deal slightly less damage.

Voice Chat

  • Voice chat is now “push-to-talk” by default in team games as well as free-for-all games. The standard button is L3 and it can be remapped. Open mic is active only for squad chat when you choose to join a named squad. In that case you still use the push-to-talk button to broadcast to your entire team. Other places where open mic is active are when observing in a limited lives game and when you are in a party
  • There is now an indicator in the lower right hand corner to let you know when you are transmitting on the microphone
