Tecmo Koei Europe has announced that the latest patch for the critically acclaimed Dynasty Warriors 8, ver. 1.3, is now available to download. The Xbox 360 version of the patch is available now, via the Xbox LIVE online network, free of charge.
Three major issues are resolved with the latest update, most notably the significant drops in frame rate when the battle heats up. According to Tecmo Koei Europe, all instances of the frame rate drops have been addressed. This no longer severely impacts the gameplay however in instances such as ambushes, fire attacks or cavalry rushes, where large numbers of soldiers appear on screen at once, the frame rate is lower than it would optimally be.
The second fix relates to an issue a small number of players had been experiencing when playing online. Some players had been reporting the loss of save data – a severe issue of course – but this has now been fixed entirely. So too has the online lock-out that could occur when attempting to host and online lobby after repeated failures to connect.
Available now, this new patch will automatically offer you the choice to download when next booting up the videogame. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Dynasty Warriors 8 and other titles from Tecmo Koei Europe.
