God of War: Ascension has been updated to version 1.03, with a couple of major changes among the usual fixes. As promised, the difficulty of Chapter 28′s Trial of Archimedes section has been toned down, granting health and magic at the end of each section. More surprising is the addition of more multiplayer customisation options – eight new colours, and six “marks”. According to the PlayStation Blog, reported audio issues have not been corrected, but SCE Santa Monica promises to keep investigating, as well as working on upcoming DLC and a new weapon class.

Piranha Games’ latest content update for free-to-play MMO MechWarrior Online is hefty indeed. The star billing is shared by the new Tourmaline Desert and Jagermech, but a new Testing Grounds area has been added, too, allowing you to check out new gear and features before wandering into battle. You may want to take advantage of this, as Piranha has added a bunch of optional control tweaks, such as a gas pedal, a torso to legs centre, and better joystick support. On top of that, there’s a pile of consumables and cosmetic items, and a leaderboard challenge.

The PC version of Tomb Raider has been patched with a wide variety of bug fixes including improved multiplayer connectivity; better voice chat; TressFX improvements; and better performance when switching view modes or using multiple displays. It’s at least the second time the Crystal Dynamics effort has been patched, and Nvidia released new beta drivers specifically in support of the game a few days ago, so hopefully any problems have now been quashed. Full patch notes are available on Steam.

March of the Eagles focuses on the Napoleonic Wars and is available exclusively on PC.

Planetside 2 was updated a few hours ago, adding in a bunch of new content already previewed in text and video form. The full patch notes reveal a heck of a lot of additional content on top of what we knew about beforehand, and through the break you’ll find some screens giving you a good look at such delights as the Flash’s new cloaking ability and shotgun.

The PC version of Tomb Raider has been patched with a number of important updates. Most importantly, Crystal Dynamics has rolled out a handful of fixes for Nvidia and Intel hardware and fixed a bug in a later missions which prevented progress for some players. Less vital but still much appreciated, it’s also added X-axis inversion and separate invert settings for control pads versus mouse and keyboard set ups, and rectified issues with fullscreen. Interestingly, Crystal Dynamics has made a “beta” version of the un-patched game available to those who’d prefer to stick to the old version; visit the patch notes for details on how to access it.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has been updated to version 1.17 in a patch issued earlier today. Full patch notes are available direct from Naughty Dog, but as fascinating as they are, the developer’s comment that the patch sets the game up for “biggest update to Uncharted 3 Multiplayer yet” is particularly interesting. This second update apparently drops tomorrow. I wonder what it could be? Hem hem.

The DayZ ArmA 2 mod has been updated with the usual pile of new content and fixes. Interesting highlights include resuable arrows; breakable arrows; and quivers. Alarmingly, zombies will now be slowly drawn towards players even when they’re not altered. Full patch notes are available on the mod’s forum. The mod version of DayZ was recently added to Steam; it’s frequently updated with new content, something Bohemia Interactive hopes to continue with the standalone release.

CCP has patched EVE Online, overhauling the user interface and module system, adding the skill Armor Honeycombing, and enacting some art tweaks. That’s all well and good, but the update also rebalances nine more Tier 1 ships, so expect the usual roars of outrage over nerfing and overpowered buffing. Full patch notes are available on the EVE Online community site.

MMO players are always complaining that they don’t get enough decent loot drops, but it looks like Guild Wars 2 fans were correct. In a forum post, ArenaNet said it had investigated complaints and believes its found the cause of the issue, and will correct it in the game’s next major patch, due later this month. You’ll still receive fewer drops than in gear-focused MMOs, but ArenaNet is also making certain areas of the game more rewarding, equipment-wise.
