Bulletstorm PC Patch Released

By on May 3, 2011

Epic Games released a new PC patch for People Can Fly’s FPS shooter, Bulletstorm. The patch will auto-download next time you fire up Steam. This patch introduces a number of small bug fixes and makes a few changes to the matchmaking for owners of the Gun Sonata DLC. You can view the complete changelog after the jump. And this ‘Players can now exit the game from the title screen by using the ESCAPE key’ fix has to be among the best we’ve ever seen in a patch. Well done People Can Fly. No seriously, well done. Now this is a truly PC game for the PC elitist master race. You’ve finally delivered.

Patch changelog:

  • Allows matchmaking for users purchasing downloadable Anarchy maps (Gun Sonata DLC Pack)
  • Fix for experience gains bar sometimes overlapping its UI space after matches during XP Multiplier Events
  • Fix for the Team version of the Double Penetration skillshot not appearing when used against Challenge enemies in some cases
  • Fix for the MOTD sometimes scrolling too fast after game launch
  • Anarchy Environmental Skillshot points are now accurate in the Multiplayer Skillshot Database
  • A player’s Quick Match lobby will now properly recover to display “Searching” if the other players in the lobby leave during the map vote tally
  • Fix for extra points appearing in HUD during the Collapsed Building Echo (was causing it to appear as if the player “lost” points when falling through the doors in that Echo)
  • Fixed an instance of a crash while the game is reloading checkpoint after player death
  • Players can now exit the game from the title screen by using the ESCAPE key
  • Fix for certain resolutions lowering performance (FPS)
  • Fixes to enforce 2-way muting rules that were not being respected under different circumstances
