Guerrilla Games, developer of PlayStation 4 exclusive FPS game Killzone Shadow Fall, has announced the release of Patch 1.07. The new patch fixes some of the in-game issues, as well as fixes several bugs.
The patch also allows players to talk to other players in-game, by adding voice chat into the game. The voice chat needs to be enabled by the player.
This new update allows team-based voice chat which will immediately detect if the user speaks and will broadcast it automatically; no button is required to do that. The patch adds support for color-blind players, personalization of multiplayer characters and improvements to the in-game radar.
A free multiplayer weekend is being hosted by the game from 28 December onwards that gives a chance for PlayStation 4 owners to try out the game and purchase it, if they like it.
The game was released on 15 November and is the sixth title in the Killzone series.
