"We have found that while a lot of players like playing the really large games, there was a pretty big segment that was playing smaller games," Jobe said in the post. The five new layouts for existing maps will be tailored to matches between four to eight players--Eucadia: High City, Island Outpost: Standoff, The Badlands: South City, Destroyed Capitol: Garden Showdown, and Archipelago: Close Corridors.
The update will also bring the Sony-announced DualShock3 rumble support to Warhawk. Interestingly, Warhawk v1.2 will also include a Warhawk Store for purchasing downloadable game-related content within the title's interface, bypassing the PlayStation Store only accessible via the PlayStation 3's XMB system.
Previous rumors of a December Warhawk expansion included details of a new vehicle, the dropship, though Jobe did not mention this in his post. The soon-to-be available version 1.1 patch will include mostly fixes and tweaks to gameplay functionality, as well as implementation of match-overseeing Warhawk Arbiters.
