Surprise announcement from Kaos Studios


Kaos Studios in conjunction with their distributor, THQ, announced today that the recently released Frontlines Fuel of War will be getting PunkBuster Anti-Cheat technology in an upcoming patch release.

The decision to select Even Balance to provide Punkbuster for Frontlines Fuel of War on the PC is a surprise to many who understood that Kaos was going to go another route using some sort of Unreal technology related anti-cheat system.

In other Frontlines news, Kaos announced that they have been hard at work preparing to release the FFOW in other parts of the world. The problem is that the 1.0.2 patch that PC users so desperately need has been pushed back a bit due to their work getting the patch stable.

The 1.0.2 patch for the PC version of Frontlines will offer a variety of fixes including server fixes, controller fixes, new server launch tools, remote console support, audio fixes, and the swatting of some additional bugs. All of the work on the 1.0.2 patch for the PC has come at a price, which has been the delay of the much wanted demo version of FFOW on the PC. Kaos has yet to indicate if the 1.0.2 patch will include the first round of Punkbuster support for FFOW or not.

Opinions regarding the release of FFOW on the PC have been mixed. Some believe that the game is more like a late stage beta that has been rushed to market and that it needs work. Still others believe that the game suffers from way too many bugs, making it an unbelievably impossible to play game.

This editor believes that the game is rough, but it shows a lot of promise, and so far Kaos has been right on top of interacting with the community and acknowledging the issues/problems that they are having and showing that they have a plan to address the issues.

The game holds a lot of promise, but it is becoming more of a question on how quickly Kaos can respond to the issues that the game obviously has to patch the title into a first rate and very playable game. Only time will tell if Kaos will be able to get this right or not.
