'Resistance 2' Patch 1.40 Detailed By Insomniac Games


Posted January 23, 2009 - By r_pad

Insomniac Games has listed details on the upcoming Resistance 2 patch 1.40, which will be available January 26. The biggest fix comes to multiplayer progression. Bryan "Sporto" Intihar, an Insomniac community manager, said, "Some people have seen their competitive and/or cooperative characters reset to level 1. For several of those cases, this patch will not only bring back all the XP, stats, and attributes that you’ve lost, but it will also add to your character profile the XP/stats/attributes that you’ve earned since those levels were reset. For example, say you were a level 20 medic and after being reset to level 1, and you earned 5,000 XP. Thanks to the patch, you’ll return a level 20 medic and that 5,000 XP will be added to your profile."

Sporto listed numerous other fixes the patch addresses, including:

“Salute Me” trophy is not awarded until player reaches level 31 (Lieutenant)
“Berserker” trophy can be collected during non-ranked games
“Survivor” medal can be collected in cooperative games
“Sure Shot” ribbon is awarded if player has accuracy of exactly 50%
