Resistance 2 – A Patch is coming

Patch me or i’ll shoot!

They can be big, they can be small. Some people hate them, some people like them. What am I talking about? It’s the ‘patch’ ofcourse. Patches are, in my mind anyway, a good thing as they fix errors found in games once they have been released. This time Resistance 2 will be receiving the ‘patch’ treatment. Look below to see whats going to be in the patch as there is quite a lot.

Patch 1.40 details:

Trophy/Medal/Ribbons

  • “Salute Me” trophy is not awarded until player reaches level 31 (Lieutenant)
  • “Berserker” trophy can be collected during non-ranked games

Cooperative
