If you've been waiting to try out the massively multiplayer car-war Auto Assault until the mechanics could give it a tune-up, wait no longer. NC Soft has deployed the first patch for the game, which includes several revisions, additions and tweaks that can only come from player feedback and experience.
MMO fans will recognize many of the new bits as "necessary luxuries" for the genre: the ability to shuffle your character's skills and attributes for a small fee with a "respec" feature, improved quest management when playing with a group ("convoy" in AAlingo), as well dozens of bug fixes and typo corrections. So the world of Auto Assault isn't any safer, but at least it's spelled correctly.
