Default OFP:DR - Second Patch Coming

No details or date just yet, only a tease:

While the the 1st patch/TU was primarily put out to address priority issues immediately affecting the quality of the game, the upcoming 2nd patch/TU will contain a much greater number of fixes and hopefully satisfy everyone’s needs.
Curious - wonder how true it is...

I highly doubt it - Codemasters has essentially admitted that there won't (or "can't", take your pick) be any dedicated servers. Shame, it would have been nice - but the game is still fun without it.

With regards to the patch, the team are still working on adding additional fixes.

The 'Overwatch' DLC extends the unique Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising experience in solo, co-operative and adversarial play. In new multiplayer mode Blindside the PLA must complete objectives in the shortest time possible while the USMC defends in tense, tactical engagements. An additional new mode, Supremacy, tasks opposing forces to occupy strategically vital positions featuring force multipliers like gun emplacements and air strikes.

  • Audio Feedback Manager can search blocked speakers list by name as well. (Optimisation)

So that's Thursday 28th around 1am AEDT if you have the retail version and presumably sometime Thurs/Fri for Steam users.
