342w ago - Dylan Jobe, Warhawk Game Director, has released details on the game's version 1.3 patch. The patch will include full integration with Sony's upcoming Home service, enabling players to form groups, meet in their apartments, discuss tactics, and then launch a game of Warhawk - all straight from within the confines of HOME.

How will it work? Provided that you're in your apartment, just pull up your virtual PSP, select Create Game and choose Warhawk from the menu prompt. From there you can start up your own server and configure game settings.

What's more, is that you'll be hide your game from the public and let only friends join. Games launched from within HOME will appear on the server list in the color gold.

Numerous VO-IP upgrades are planned for the patch. Jobe says players will now be able to select from either PTT or Open-Mic mode, tune the voice-activation level, and enable cross-team chat support.

As for in-game content, the update will feature two new pieces of equipment, including a Mechanic's Field Wrench and Bio-Field Generator. Some player-created customizations will also be making their way into the update.

But if you don't and are still reading, please help yourself to Google or Wikipedia to understand what the hell I'm talking about.

The crux of the entire game lies in the Successor project introduced in Portable ops by character called "Gene" (who was created to become the perfect field commander). The Boss, Naked Snake (Big Boss), Gray Fox/Ninja/Frank Jaeger, Solid, Liquid and Solidus are all parts of this project initiated by the Philosophers and this legacy continues with the formation of the Patriots whom we get to a little later.
