If you're rubbing your eyes in disbelief, fret not, you're hardly alone. After a sea of silence from the Vanguard
team, the struggling MMO is getting its first update in a very long time -- since January 2010, as a matter of fact.
This "bug bash" update is precisely what it says: a patch dedicated to fixing a number of troublesome errors in the game. These changes will impact the UI, repeatable events, items, abilities, and quests.
While the patch itself would be seen as a routine update in any other game, the fact that Vanguard
players are seeing something after all this time is cause to celebrate. A month ago Sony Online Entertainment
promised the community that it hadn't forgotten about Vanguard
, so hopefully this patch is an indicator that the company plans to make good on its promise to support and expand the game.
