Calling all Fat Princess fans!

Today is a great day indeed. Your faithful developers at Titan Studios and team at Sony Santa Monica Studio are extremely happy to announce that after careful thought and great labor, Patch 1.03 is complete and ready for imminent release.

Patch 1.03 contains the awesome New Pork city level, and due to the amazing support we have received from the community, we have decided to release the map for free! Yes you heard us right, for free!

Fat Princess DLC CITY

Just as important, we have implemented many fixes and tweaks to make the game better than ever. The Fat Princess demo will also go live with the release of 1.03, so everyone who has been dying to try out the game can finally check it out. Huzzah, cake and candy confetti (see below, if you please) for everyone!

1.03 Patch Notes

After playing innumerable games, reading the forums and piles of email, and reviewing all the great feedback we received from you, the fans, we have made a variety of tweaks to the gameplay balance and systems to ensure the game stays fair, fresh and as fun as ever.

Here is a full breakdown of all the changes that can be found in the upcoming patch:

New Map

  • A brand new awesome city map has been added called New Pork…and it’s free!

Game System Tweaks

  • The host’s ability to kick and ban players has been removed.
  • The ability for players to switch teams post-game is now restricted so that sides cannot be unbalanced by more than 2 players.
  • A new switching team system has been implemented during matches:
  • * If there is a deficit of 2 players between teams, the weaker team will drop a team colored ball on the death of a player.
    * Picking up the colored ball switches a player’s team and rewards them with a 300 point bonus.
    * So…get the ball.

  • The 10 game average ranking system has been removed.
  • A new ranking system has been implemented, which adds rank points for every game based on the player’s score.
  • Awarded ranking titles will now never go down once earned.
  • Online leaderboards have been increased to display all players not just the top 1000.
  • All online leaderboards are to be reset shortly after patch 1.03 is released, but all unlocked customizations and trophies will remain unlocked. You will not lose them.

Main Bug Fixes

  • The Princess disappearing bug has been fixed.
  • The issue with statistics and trophies not saving correctly has been fixed.

Character Balancing

  • The Dark Priest’s lock-on range has been reduced.
  • The Dark Priest’s drain ability has been slightly reduced.
  • The Ranger now has larger movement penalty when locked on and charging attacks.
  • The Adv. Ranger has a smaller shot dispersion and increased damage per shot.
  • The Warrior’s attack damage has been increased slightly.
  • The Warrior’s movement speed has been increased slightly when locked on and charging attacks.
  • The Warrior’s 360 degree protect when his shield is raised has been increased from 20% to 40%
  • Warrior’s Lock on range increased to match Ranger to stop class being hit from behind when retreating
  • Warriors weapon collision box increased in size to aid with hit detection
  • Adv Warrior speed increased slightly when locked on and charging to match his normal movement speed
  • Adv Warrior damage increased
  • Adv Worker’s bomb knockback force removed
  • Princess calorie burn decreased slightly in weight state 3 and 4

Control Tweaks

  • Two new control schemes have been implemented to allow players to use the R1 button to attack and to free the player’s right hand for target switching. This is AWESOME.

Scoring Updates

  • New switching team bonus added of 300 points.
  • Princess rescue score increased to 300 points.
  • Princess rescue assistance bonus increased to 150 points.
  • Princess escort bonus increased to 75 points.
  • Win game scoring reduced to 150 points.
  • Match completion bonus added of 75 points.
  • Average Rank bonus award removed for games won under 3 minutes.
  • Bonus score for winning games in under 3 minutes removed.

Additional Tweaks

  • Candy confetti added as a special effect when blood is turned off. Check this out – it is really cool.
  • All loading screens now in color.
  • Loading screens now allow players to scroll to next and previous tips during the load.

We look forward to slaughtering you – ahem, seeing you – on the battlefield!

Cake for everyone,

The Fat Princess Team

hopefully this will get players to play it again. it lasted for about a week then died out. but ill be more than happy to pick it up again. maybe a price drop to 9.99 is in order to get this game to more people.

Providing that map for free has put you in my favorite developers category, right up there with Media Molecule, Naughty Dog, And SquareEnix :D

That’s why I love Sony over other game companies they support their fans by creating content for free. Thanks so much for bringing us the demo as well.

+ stlthriot on October 23rd, 2009 at 2:54 pm said:

Will the the kill count and stats on your personal stats page stay?
It’ll just be the leadership board that will reset?

Oh, and it is sad to hear about that rank not going down… mine just dropped significantly and I was winning matches… it didn’t make sense. lol.

“Today is a great day indeed”. So I login to PlayStation Store to see if the demo was there yet…

No it’s not true, it’s all a lie!

Soon it’ll be a great day when the demo releases! Dunno if I want to buy this game or not yet without first getting a little taste first.

Fantastic!!!!! Thanks.

+ SpyDudeFX on October 23rd, 2009 at 3:02 pm said:

Good idea to do the map free, that’s a good gesture of goodwill for all of the problems, we players have endured with those bugs. Everything sounds great, also hope you launch premium content soon!

jesus lord, what about the psp version? We have heard NOTHING about it

+ LordElite on October 23rd, 2009 at 3:17 pm said:

It really took you three months to do this?

Honestly, it may be too late to get people playing again, since Uncharted 2 is out, and Demon’s Souls also launched recently in the US. But I’ll be sure to give the now-fixed online a try.

+ spatsnaz on October 23rd, 2009 at 3:19 pm said:

Great news. This’ll surely get me back into the game.

Too bad the game isn’t on a disc.

Then it would be worth buying.

Smooth move, free DLC will get you a great reputation.

This game has died down a lot. I’m not sure how many people still play it online? But nobody on my friends list do and I never hear anybody on the message boards talk about it.

Maybe the patch and free DLC will get people back into it.

Oh thank goodness, a free map. If it cost money, the community would just be split up.
