In a new post from Illfonic’s CEO Charles Brungardt on the PlayStation Blog, Brungardt has confirmed that August’s update is scheduled for the 28th, and we’ll be receiving the 2.0 patch. In addition to “quality of life bug fixes” patch 2.0 will see the implementation of the much anticipated crossplay invites!
And we have more! On August 28th, we will be dropping our 2.0 Patch. What does this mean? Well a few things: the game will have some quality of life bug fixes and the highly-requested crossplay with friends will be available. While we had hoped this would be in at launch, we are thrilled to make it happen now.
While we don’t yet know what’s in store for this month’s paid DLC (it will be announced next week), Brungardt did announce that August’s free content drop will include a brand new assault rifle, anti-cloak grenade and some other goodies!
We want to thank the community for their patience and support while we waded through the technical needs to make this happen. In addition, like every free update there are some great in-game items coming too. The Classic Combistick and Wrist Launcher from the City Hunter content is now unlockable to everyone; there is a large Fireteam Supply Drop including the OWLF Assault Rifle, the Anti-Cloaking Grenade, UAV Scanner, and the Self Revive Syrette; and a Field Locker Update with 3 new Predator Masks, a new Fireteam Ballistic Mask, and other new tints and shaders.
And the news we’ve all been waiting for is here! Not just the wait on the news, but the wait on the content isn’t going to be long at all either. The new map and game-mode are coming next month!
As a part of this blog post, it was really important to the team that we shared a look ahead at the Free Update and Paid DLC schedule. We’ve seen the posts on social media and in the forums asking when we are dropping a new map and mode. While we cannot share the exact date yet, we wanted to give some transparency to the months you can expect to get these items – the new map and mode will both be in our September update!
And as a reminder, the map and mode are part of the Free Update, they are not Paid DLC. We think the community will really enjoy both, and we have more up our sleeves after these updates – so always come back to the forums and our social channels for updates. We will share all that we can as soon as we can!
There’s no details on what to expect from the new map or the new mode, but the article did include the above tease of a gulley-type location from the new map! Along with the map tease, the article also included a hint of what September’s paid DLC will be with a very familiar silhouette…I think the safe money is on the Dutch ’87 class (which has previously leaked)!
