Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force has been out for a few weeks now, offering fans a unique – albeit divisive – take on the world of Metroid Prime. Considering the online-centric gameplay – both in the main game and its extra mode, Blast Ball – one would think that it would be updated fairly regularly, yet the first update only just went live today.

Version 1.1 is now available, and is required if you'd like to continue playing the game online. As for what it does, it seems that Blast Ball is getting most of the benefit. Most notably, a timer is being added to the team selection screen, and players that are AFK for too long will be automatically booted. Otherwise, it's just bug fixes and adjustments, here are the full patch notes:

  • Fixed an issue that caused errors to occur when beginning Online Play in Blast Ball.
  • Added a count-down timer to the team selection screen in the Online Play mode of Blast Ball.
  • During matches in the Online Play mode of Blast Ball, players will be disconnected if they fail to make any inputs for a set amount of time.
  • Other adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.
