Medal of Honor to Get Second PC Patch

Over on the Official Medal of Honor Blog, there’s a new post that will make PC gamers happy.

Apparently Danger Close is taking the feedback from the PC beta to heart, announcing that they are currently working on a second patch for the recently released shooter. The post says, in part,

A second PC patch is on the way for Medal of Honor’s multiplayer. We have been working on the feedback from the forums that you posted during the PC beta.

Good news indeed, and always awesome to see a developer taking the concerns submitted by players to heart. Here’s a list of the changes that will be released in the upcoming patch:

GENERAL

  • Fixed the scenario when joining a friend on a password protected server caused a hang
  • Ribbons and medals appear on unranked servers

well…don’t understand some of the fixes like the recoil kinda takes away from the medal of honor classic game play where guns hardly had recoil, but none the less interesting patch up to the game, now they just need more maps!!
