David Jaffe has confirmed that the next patch will include Axel free for everyone who downloads it. This piece of content was only available to those who had pre-ordered the game before it released last month. Jaffe also stated that there would be a surprise skin for all characters that he did not go into detail about. There will also be a list of fixes that the patch will include to improve your experience with the game. The list includes:
Leaderboard reports are being looked into.
Connection issues will continue to be looked into and the next patch should help.
NAT Type 3 is an issue with your internet router. Jaffe advises to change it to NAT Type 1.
(Look around the net to see how to do this, though I advice to do this only if your experienced with router settings.)
Tie games and rage quitting will damage your skill.
Staying in parties when joining ranked games: This comes down to skills and balancing. Joining games where one side is high skill level and the other extremely low. This throws off balancing. No plans to make any adjustments to this.
Skin website – Browser is being tweaked to look better.
Tuning is being worked on.
Talon getting a new visual on the HUD. Make it different from normal vehicles so that players will know it’s Talon.
Junkyard healing XP being tweaked
Auto-Start: they feel like it’s fine now that host are aware of being host, but if players feel it’s still an issue they will fixed this later.
Jaffe also stated that leaderboards would be fixed and players who had over 100,000 will properly show up on the leaderboards. Hopefully these fixes won’t cause any more problems with the online portion and players will be able to enjoy the online play without any trouble.
