Resistance 2's 1.4 patch coming Monday

  • Posted January 25th, 2009 at 01:00 EDT by

Some of you may have noticed that Resistance 2 has quite a few bugs within its coding. You should be happy to know that Insomniac is aware of the issue and plans to release a patch this coming Monday in order to repair a lot of the issues being found. One key problem is the reset of experience during online play, rendering players at Level One after sessions of hard experience earning. Thankfully, the patch will bump you back up to your appropriate level and allow you to keep all of your EXP that you earned post-reset as well.

The patch also fixes the glitch that prevents gamers from receiving their 10,000 kill Trophy. This fix will be retroactive, so you will not be expected to reach that milestone once more in order to achieve it.

We've included the rest of the details below.

Trophy/Medal/Ribbons

* “Salute Me” trophy is not awarded until player reaches level 31 (Lieutenant)
* “Berserker” trophy can be collected during non-ranked games
