Modern Combat Getting Hack Fix Patch

Combat the hackers.

When Modern Combat: Domination was released on the PSN it received some warm praise from many people. Unfortunately, some were put off by the hackers who managed to break in to the game pretty quickly.

Luckily, Gameloft has been monitoring the situation and today they responded with the announcement of a patch to fix many of the issues we’ve been hearing about. Chief among those fixes is the addition of “Anti-Hacking Protection” which should make the game a little bit more fair. There will also be fixes for the collision detection, money accumulation and some other minor improvements.

We are always happy to see a developer address issues which arise after a game’s release. We applaud anyone who takes the time and makes the financial commitment to get their product as tightly tuned as possible. That being said, will gamers be quick to forgive and jump into the online world of Modern Combat with Killzone 3 so close to release? Gameloft are clearly hoping there’s room in your lives for more than one online FPS!

Here’s the full fix list, due to roll out over the next few weeks, as per the press release:

  • Anti-Hacking protection
  • Invisible collision amendments to some maps.
  • Respawn: prevent face-to-face respawns.
  • Default time for a game in objective mode set to 3 minutes.
  • Modification of the range of the knife (distance and angle).
  • Possibility to change the range of the ping display.
  • Money accumulates from $2400 instead of $0 in all modes featuring respawn.
  • Quick fix of ‘death on respawn’ problems caused by connection issues.
  • Adjusting of controls sensitivity.

    I fear its too late for me now, I re-purchased MAG for £4 and as you say with KZ3 so close on the horizon my money is being saved for that

      and Modern Combat is £6.29, I think. It must be worth a punt if you’re into online shooters? Whether you’ll find the time is another story…

        Always a problem when trying to juggle real life and entertainment though at that price i admit i’m severely tempted.

      choice between this and kz3? I dont see a choice. Im ordering you to get KZ3 ;)
      Just out of interest, have you tried the trial for this game? IMO – Its utter shizer!

    It’s actually quite good when you get to grips with the controls.

    Well done to Gameloft. It took them a short time to work out these fixes and it took Infinity Ward months to fix the rock glitch on a billion dollar title.
    I’ll be jumping back on Modern Combat when it’s released.

    Talking of patches… what’s happening with the Mass Effect 2 patch?

    I’ve been waiting to carry on playing, but scared about the corrupt save issues!

      According to bioware, just quitting the game every couple of hours should prevent save issues.

        I would find that quite irritating though. When i sit down to play a game i don’t want to quit a game all the time.

      I’ve played ME2 for a total of 31 hours so far and i haven’t had any save issue. I’m playing it an average of 6 hours each session. Sometimes online, sometimes not.

    Great stuff, played a few hours of this and loving it, for the price it’s a bargain.
