Title Update 2: Patch Notes

21/03/2017 09:00 AM

Hello Ghosts,

We would like to announce the patch notes for our Title Update 2, available on PC on March 22nd and PS4 and Xbox One on March 23rd during morning UTC. We will have a small maintenance in order to update our servers.

The development team focused on improving all areas of the game, from gameplay content to connectivity and stability tweaks. The patch size will be around 3 GB on consoles and up to 5 GB on PC, depending on your client, and an in-game notification will let you know when it’s available. Players in game will need to reboot the game to apply the patch. Please remember that in order to play co-op, all the players will need to have the same version of the game.

In addition to that, following the community feedback we received, we have implemented the option to turn off the radios in the game by default, as well as the option to choose the type of vehicle you want to spawn when using the “Drop Vehicle” rebel skill. Now you should have even more tactical options to plan and execute your missions.

Also, for those of you who love playing with the most hardcore settings and all your HUD elements turned off, we have implemented the option to choose which type intel you want to collect when interacting with files or NPCs. This way the gameplay flow won’t be interrupted and you will be able to discover new missions, skills, and weapons seamlessly, even with all the visual tips turned off.

You can find some PC specific fixes and improvements at the end of the notes. On top of other fixes, the Home, End, Insert, Delete, Page Up, and Page Down keys can now be remapped--making life easier for some players, especially the left-handed ones.

Thanks for your suggestions, Ghosts!

MISSIONS/NARRATION

We received reports of some players having issues with certain missions in the game. After investigating the causes, we have implemented fixes so they can now have a smooth experience. We also fixed an XP farming exploit related to the “Rebellion Rising” mission, which created interference with the co-op experience.

- Adjusted various missions markers & GPS pathfinding.
- The following missions are now unlocked correctly for players who reported issues: 

  • * Gold Rush
  • * Sueño’s proposition
  • * Sandoval Dead body
  • * El Cerebro

- Adjusted various mission triggers in order to smoothen the player's progress and game experience.
- Fixed situations where dialogue and barks would not trigger correctly.
- The following missions are now replayable: 

  • * El Cerebro 
  • * Boss missions 
  • * Sandoval confession 
  • * Western cocaine cache

- Fixed infinite XP farming exploit on "Rebellion Rising" mission.
- NPCs now exit the vehicle properly in "Stop the Convoy" missions

USER INTERFACE

We implemented various fixes and tweaks related to trophy and weapon packs unlocking. We also fixed an issue related to the Charactersmith model not being positioned correctly. On top of that, players who love to play with the HUD completely hidden will now be able to select the type of intel they want to collect when they interact with files or NPCs.

- Players can now select what intel they want to collect, even with all the HUD options turned off.
- Trophy requirements adjustments: 

  • * The Champion 
  • * Eagle-Eyed 
  • * With a Pistol!

- Fixed some weapon packs not unlocking properly:

  • * Underbarrels & Rails Pack

- Fixed Character hiding behind menus in certain situations.
- HUD now updates when XP boosters are activated. 

CO-OP

We detected some replication issues during cooperative sessions between players. This patch should provide a more consistent experience between Ghosts sharing the same game session.

- Corrected various replication issues, such as:

  • * Paint jobs & attachments not showing correctly in the lobby 
  • * Rebel Radio explosion not synchronizing 
  • * Sniper scope glare effect not synchronizing 
  • * Players seen running beside VHC/bike they should be sitting in 
  • * Suppressor not synchronizing when removed from a vehicle’s shooting position 
  • * Burning corpses from systemic events 
  • * Explosion not replicating if the distance is too high

- The following achievements should now be awarded to all the players in the two missions below:

  • * A Better Mousetrap 
  • * The Cluster Bomber

- Fixed a bug where hits would register with a 0.5-second lag.
- Fixed kick/ban vote notifications.
- Fixed game freezes in 4-player sessions. 

CONNECTIVITY

We detected and fixed some issues that were causing some player disconnections. The experience should be more solid after the patch.

- Fixed various disconnection bugs.
- Fixed a bug where the user could not reconnect to a previous session.
- Fixed errors when looking for public sessions.

GAMEPLAY

Added fixes and improvements for gameplay-related issues and requests that some players reported.

Players can now select the vehicle they want to spawn when using the "Drop Vehicle" rebel skill.

- Fixed XP awarded when killing an enemy undetected.
- Fixed a bug where sometimes vehicle seats could stay booked after NPC exiting.
- Fixed a bug where the player would take cover too far from certain props.
- Players can no longer teleport to safe houses while being hunted.
- The Medical Helicopter will now spawn correctly in the Tabacal area side-mission.

- Fixed a situation where sometimes vehicles disappeared when driving at high speeds.

- Added a feature allowing the player to mute every radio in-game.
- Fixed Car radio not functioning in various situations.
- Amplified the radio voice effects to avoid player confusing El Sueño’s voice on the radio and the one of the Ghosts.
