Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Receives a Patch

By Lexley Ford, 4 years ago
In a move that may have surprised quite a few people recently received it’s first patch since the games release in October of last year. This new patch features a selection of balancing and minor gameplay adjustments and will also address known multiplayer exploit issues.

Capital Conquest HQs have had their health increased.

After spawning in a match, players can no longer press START and self-respawn for 15 seconds.

If players being chased in DFM exit the combat area they will be treated as being shot down, this will result in their death count increasing by 1. Any pursuing players that also exit the combat area due to the pursuit will be credited for the kill. If pursued by more than one player, all pursuing players will be credited for the kill.

Certain weapons have been modified. There are currently no specific details on which weapons have been affected.

After respawning in a match, players will be invincible for 10 seconds.

After firing a missile in DFM, cycling through weapons will no longer cause DFM Assault Circle to charge faster.

A bug has been fixed concerning the damage of the Aircraft Carriers in Tokyo and Washington, D.C. maps in Capital Conquest mode.

Players can no longer use global ASM near the HQ in Capital Conquest mode.

XBox 360 ONLY: Voice chat quality has now been improved.
Alongside the patch, Namco Bandai have also made changes to the games Integrated Web Site.

Battle records will no longer be uploaded to ACAH's Game Integrated Web Site as of 11/24/2012 (Sat) 00:00 (GTM).

In addition, the data for "Player Card", "Achievements", "Ranking" and "My Profile" provided within the Game Integrated Web Site will no longer be updated as of 11/24/2012 (Sat) 00:00 (GMT).

Although the data on ACAH's Game Integrated Web Site may not be updated, you will still be able to view the "Player Card", "Achievements", "Ranking" and "My Profile" within the site.

* For PS3/Xbox360 players, the "Leaderboard" feature in the "Online" mode in game will still be functional.
While these changes may seem to be slightly late, or even unnecessary for a game released late last year, it should be noted that Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will be available to purchase through the Xbox LIVE Games on Demand service from December 18th, 2012.
