Volition has outlined an upcoming patch for Red Faction: Guerrilla.

All three of the main game modes are receiving an upgrade, and while the patch has yet to be finalized, Volition promises it will be made available very soon for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Here are the full notes:

New Features

  • New Wrecking Crew mode – Challenge Mode: There are 3 rounds of distinct submode/weapon/backpack settings per level. Each participant plays through all 3 rounds to try to get the highest score possible. Challenge Mode is the best way to enjoy WC by yourself, and we’re also allowing all modes to be played with a single player.
  • Wrecking Crew Leaderboards: Your scores for Challenge Mode only are automatically uploaded to leaderboards (1 per level) so you can compare how you’re doing against your friends and the world. Leaderboards are only available for Challenge Mode.
  • Bonus Wrecking Crew levels unlocked: The 4 pre-order bonus WC levels are now unlocked for everyone, giving you 10 levels in which to blow everything away.
  • Weapon and Backpack disabling in Multiplayer: Prevent any specific backpacks or weapons from spawning in a level within a custom match.
  • XP multiplier for matchmaking playlists: Double XP playlists are now possible (and will be used).
  • Ore Deposits on Minimap: Mining ore that hasn’t been mined will now show up as purple pulsing dots on the minimap. This will help players to obtain the “Working the Land” achievement/trophy.
  • Support for upcoming DLC: Demons of the Badlands, our first DLC pack, will be released on August 13th.

Fixes

  • House Arrest icons now reflect their proper completion status after you finish the last mission.
  • Convoy spawning is now fixed after you finish the last mission. Previously some convoys would be prevented from spawning.
  • Scale of some icons on the full-screen map and minimap has been fixed.
  • Parties are no longer allowed to matchmake into Anarchy through the “Any Playlist” selection option.
  • Ties no longer count as losses on the MP leaderboards.
  • Various minor matchmaking fixes.

    I was goign to make a dirty joke, but about 5 minutes before I wrote this, I decideed I was goign to write this comment instead. And I don’t know hwo to explain that part, becuase it’s become too self referencial.

    Not to mention the awful spealling I just see, now. And syntax too.

    Ah well, I could do better.

    Is that fair?

    If you say no, to drugs all your life, you enver egt to experience them. Why not say yes all the time, until you’re old enoguh to live without it.

    Is it that whole brain damage thing?
