Sumo Digital hat heute die Installation zum LittleBigPlanet 3 Patch 1.25 freigegeben.
Seit der aktuellen PlayStation 4 System-Software 4.50 gibt Sony nun die Entwickler die Möglichkeit auch ihre Spiel Updates via PreLoad anzubieten, wie es bei Vorbestellungen im PlayStation Store bereits der Fall ist.
Sumo Digital ist nun der erste Entwickler der das neue Feature nutzt und spendierte Dienstag LittleBigPlanet 3 den Patch 1.25, allerdings kann er erst seit heute installiert werden.
Der Patch hat eine Größe von 1,3GB und wir haben für Euch die englisch sprachigen Patch-Notes:
New Feature – Genres
Genres arrive to LittleBigPlanet and can be located under the Community menu from your Pod Computer.
Selecting this new option will take you a familiar looking menu that has replaced all your classic community categories with a range of 23 different genres including:
- 1st and 3rd Person
- Platform Shooters
- Stylised Platformers
- Survival Challenges
- Time Trials
- Vehicle Shooters
Each Genre category will show the Team Picks for that Genre followed by the highest-rated community levels for that Genre.
Hint: Select a Genre. Press R3 to open your Filters menu and deselect the Played filter to hide any levels within this Genre that you have already played… Just perfect for finding new levels within your favourite Genres!
Don’t worry though; your classic Community Menu isn’t going anywhere and you can locate it by selecting the Recommended option that is displayed on the same screen as the Genres option. Selecting this will allow you to see all of your old-favourite categories such as Team Picks, Level of the Day, Most Hearted and Recommended For You!
With the arrival of the new Genres, we have added a new range of genre-defining Labels that Creators can add to their published creations or Reviewers can select as a recommended Label to describe the level.
These new Labels have also been added to the Filters menu that can be displayed by pressing R3 in any Community Category under either Genres or Recommended to allow you to Filter for community levels that have your chosen Label as one of its most selected Labels to describe the level.
New Feature – Online Connection Quality Display
The Host Player of an Online Multiplayer session can now view the Connection Quality of other players within the Manage Players screen of the Pause Menu or by pressing R3 during gameplay.
A player’s connection rating will be displayed as such:
- Three Green Dots = Good Connection
- Two Amber Dots = Okay Connection
- One Red Dot = Bad Connection
LittleBigPlanet 3 uses a peer-to-peer network connection system for Online Multiplayer and the Host Player can use this information to help them determine if any other players connection quality will have a negative effect on the multiplayer experience.
This Online Connection status is calculated out based on a combination of packet loss and round trip time for communication. If a player has a Bad Connection (One Red Dot) there is a higher chance of players losing connection and dropping out of the game session.
Improved Community Browsing
A number of improvements have been made to the in-game Community menus to reduce the number of instances where slowdown or lag may occur when browsing Community Levels.
You may notice that the scroll speed between categories on the main Recommended and Genre menus has been reduced slightly. This is intentional to prevent the game from trying to download too much data at once and is amongst the changes that we have implemented to help optimise the overall experience.
The other changes are more behind-the-scenes and should be less noticeable other than these combined changes should help to reduce the number instances of slowdown and lag.
LittleBigPlanet 3 erschien am 26. November 2014 für PlayStation 3 und PlayStation 4.
