Many gamers will doubtlessly be ready to throw down in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's multiplayer suite... but PS3 owners may discover a nasty little sting in the tail. No Sleep Gamer reports that a netcode bug is incorrectly identifying players' NAT types as Closed or Moderate, leading to matchmaking times of upwards of 35 minutes.
Relic Entertainment is aware of the problem and are currently working on a fix. A few temporary solutions are doing the rounds, but their effectiveness has yet to be confirmed.
"Our team has isolated the issue and has a patch in with our QA team to verify the matchmaking issue is resolved. Again we are working as fast as we can to resolve the problem. Keep in mind you are still able to join matchmaking games in the meantime, but the wait times can exceed over 35 minutes.”
Let us know if you've been affected - and we'll keep you posted. No Sleep Gamer's Brendan Griffiths (our PS3 correspondent) will have a full review for us shortly.
