Lost Planet connection patch coming this week

Capcom has just announced that their long awaited connectivity patch for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition will be hitting Xbox LIVE this Thursday, August 30th.

What’s interesting here is the fact that the fix will offer up 3 different connection options as a fix as opposed to a simplified “blanket” patch. Once the patch has been applied, gamers will be able to choose a connection option best suited for their own personal connection speed. Connection choices will be:

Default -This is the standard setting regardless of upload speed.

Pattern A – This is more suitable when your upload speed is fast.

Pattern B – This is more suitable when your upload speed is slow and your connection is not stable with Default.

Capcom has warned that players may experience some quirky gameplay once the patch has been released if they match up against opponents who have not applied the patch (which to me seems strange since game updates are usually mandatory if you wish to connect to Xbox LIVE, but hey, what do I know??) Some symptoms of this mis-match include glitches with screen text, game freezes and disconnects. If players experience one of these problems, they are recommending that you sign out and sign back in again.
