A quick fix from Sega today surrounding an update on the PSN today to address joining multiplayer game issues in the PS3 version of the demo. Also the new version of the AvP demo now features added functionality for PlayStation 3 games to create their own matches and browse for open slots to join other in session games.
“We are confident that the matchmaking issue has been fixed with this new demo and we will be monitoring community activity closely over the coming days to ensure that it has been fully resolved. We would like to thank the community for all of their valuable feedback and continued patience,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe.
Interestingly enough our very own SlayerAgamon raised concerns over the multiplayer Deathmatch only options for this demo – and has raised a fuss over other game demos only offering this… In the same Article from Sega, Rebellion clarified the reasoning behind this choice.
- “We chose Deathmatch as the mode for the demo as it’s very familiar to all FPS gamers and minimizes restrictions on players while they are getting to grips with the controls of each of the three playable species” said Jason Kingsley, CEO and co-founder of Rebellion. “We have plenty of new modes in the game and players only have to wait a matter of days before they can play them when the game launches.”
