Hood: Outlaws & Legends – Patch 1.4 verfügbar

Sumo Digital hat den Patch 1.4 für Hood: Outlaws & Legends veröffentlicht, mit dem man unter anderem an der Balance des Titels schraubt.

Das gilt insbesondere auch für das Matchmaking, das anfangs recht unausgeglichen war und ewig dauerte. So bleiben Teams jetzt immer zusammen, auch wenn sie am Ende des Matches ihr Lager besuchen. Dadurch sollen vor allem die Matchmaking-Zeiten erheblich verkürzt werden.

Ebenso wurde die Winde am Ende des Matches optimiert, mit der man nun besser interagieren kann. Ergänzend gibt es nun einen Alarm, sobald das gegnerische Team einen Abschnitt zum Ziel erreicht.

Ansonsten gibt es noch kleinere Fixex beim Voice Chat, dem UI, beim Combat und mehr, die ihr nachfolgend einsehen könnt:

Balance

  • Assassinations can now be interrupted if damage to assassin exceeds a certain threshold (read more here) TLDR: most basic attacks interrupt it now.

Combat

  • Players can now exit stagger/stun more consistently through dodging/blocking, to reduce situations where players would get stunlocked

Matchmaking

  • Players on EGS can now invite players on Steam to their group.
  • After the end of a match, players are moved back to the hideout, but remain in their squads. This should reduce matchmaking times because before, players were leaving the automatic queue in order to return to the hideout, which had a negative impact on queue times.
  • Rank is no longer displayed in the lobby.

Winch

  • Improved ability to interact with winch when standing close to it
  • Added feedback alert for when an enemy team reaches a new winching notch

  • Fixed Ctrl appearing when trying to bind a key to Right Shift or Alt Gr
  • Added missing home spawn icon on Citadel for both teams
  • Tweaked some texts in the post-match screen for clarity
  • Fixed the respawn timer sometimes appearing blurred as if in the background

Other Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the tag not being removed for enemy players when a Marianne used her ability after getting tagged by an AI
  • Fixed collision pushing mechanic forcing characters to rotate in certain instances
  • Fixed visual effect of Gold coins falling out of chest when it was dropped
  • [Xbox One, Xbox Series] Fixed black screen when returning to Hideout
