Patching News

April 26th, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · 3 Comments · Patches

Though it’s not an expansion pack, there is a new patch for Rise of Legends. You can read the details of the 2.5 patch at Big Huge Games. This gives me an excuse to load the game again. It’s been sitting there unused for a few months.

Meanwhile, just as I get back to competence in Company of Heroes, along comes Relic with another update. It’s mostly multiplayer tweaks, so I guess I don’t have to go back to the drawing board.

Meanwhile, Creative Assembly still hasn’t released a second patch for Medieval II: Total War. It was promised for a few weeks ago, but then there were some technical difficulties. An “unofficial” patch was leaked and torrented far and wide, and there is a 33 page thread on the official forum with complaints. The lesson here is to never announce a firm date for a patch and then miss it. And then say that it might take another month or so. The patch is pretty important, too, since it will fix some major issues with the cavalry/spear balance that had tilted too far in favor of the horsemen.

    Sweet! I’ll be interested to see the changes for RoL. I’m glad they are at least still patching it.

    Me too I’m waiting for the Mediaval II patch…
    I stop playing 2 3 month ago. Due to all the bug and gameplay issue in the game and waiting for the new patch. I think they drop the ball on this game (creative assembly), I will really wait before buying more game from them…
