Dylan Jobe has revealed some details about upcoming fixes along with when Starhawk players can expect their beta gifts.
Many players have reported that Starhawk is suffering from connection issues. Dylan Jobe has said that these issues are being looked into, and players can expect a hot-fix to roll out once LightBox “finishes launching this week (just finished Japan).” Other issues such as server filtering are also being looked into as some players have reported that they don’t load fully. Also, for those who were familiar with the complaint/report system in Warhawk you may have notice that it is currently missing in Starhawk. This is because the system has not been activated yet, and will be included in an upcoming hot-fix.
If you’ve been playing the co-op mode, then you’ll know that the only way to play with someone is either by split-screen or through a PSN invite. Though not 100% confirmed, Dylan has stated that once the global launch is complete the team will be evaluating matchmaking for Co-Op.
