Lightbox Interactive’s follow-up to popular PlayStation shooter, Warhawk, has recently been updated to version 1.03.
Making good on his pre-launch promise, studio president Dylan Jobe announced that 1.03 isn’t just packed with tweaks and fixes. Upon downloading the free title update, players will be given immediate access to two new maps, both situated on the planet Cypress. Both variants are buried beneath a canopy of foliage, peppering the battlefield with plenty of cover points.
Players who have been sitting around at level 50 are also in for a surprise. Lightbox has worked Prestige Levels into the online experience, allowing hardcore fans to garner even more XP and rank further. Other features include Drop Pod tweaks, soundtrack contextualisation, improved chat functionality and a new scoring system in Capture the Flag:
Now, to score a point in CTF, you need to take the enemy flag back to your base — period. Your team’s flag does *NOT* need to be there for you to score. Now certainly, your team still needs to play defense because you don’t want the enemy team taking your flag and scoring, but this change makes the pacing so much better. Much faster and far fewer draws and stalemates.
According to Jobe this is just the tip of the iceberg. Future updates are set to introduce more maps, more features and even new build and battle options.
