Killzone 3 patch 1.07 hits on Wednesday, brings custom games with it

In the past month Killzone 3 has had more patches than we have hot dinners. Props to Guerrilla for trying to improve their game as much as possible though, and this latest patch (1.07) arriving on Wednesday packs some big changes.

The update brings the first phase of custom games, allowing players to create their own online matches, although only unranked games are available at this point in time.

Explanation of Custom Games

Custom Games will be rolled out in 2 patches. This one (1.07) and a future patch. We don’t know when this will be yet.


Phase One of Custom Games gives players the option to create unranked games with the choice of:

* Game Mode
* Map
* Missions (Warzone only)
* Mission Time (Warzone only)
* Invite Squad members
* Invite Enemy Squad Leader

This gives players the ability to create private matches, and playing with and against friends or a rival clan for instance. People who don’t get an invite to these games won’t be able to join through matchmaking.
