savage2atorturedsoul_003.jpgAlors qu'il est toujours à 10 dollars ce week-end, Savage 2 : A Tortured Soul vient aussi de se voir gratifier un nouveau patch (1.6.0, puis 1.6.1 et 1.6.2, suite à quelques soucis).

Au menu, comme d'habitude un joli paquet de bugs corrigés, mais également une bonne dose d'ajustements au niveau du gameplay, afin de réduire encore un peu les disparités entre les différentes classes de personnages à incarner.

Le changelog se trouve dans la suite de la nouvelle.

- Fixed an issue with shuffle team vote that would cause some players to be stuck in spectate, unable to choose teams
- Fixed missing clan icons
- Fixed a client crash that could occur when the map changed

Version 1.6.1
- Fixed an issue causing some users not to see textures properly or, in some cases, not be able to load the main menu

Version 1.6.0

- Several other miscellaneous engine changes and improvements
- Included Maliken and Hunter in practice mode
- Added a shuffle vote to shuffle the teams based on skill factor
- Added a concede vote. This vote can only be cast when your team is failing to meet upkeep and the match has been occuring for more than 5 minutes. This vote also requires 66% approval to pass
