New Black & White Patch; Superstar Shepherd
12:03 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

The folks at Feral Interactive report that a new update is on the way for Black & White, their acclaimed god-game from Peter Molyneux and Lionhead Studios:

This will fix a few minor glitches that have been reported, and also include a few pre-flight system checks on that should be helpful to those folks who may not have the most up-to-date system software. This patch also includes the Village Banter add-in, additional secret creatures, and support for custom creature tattoos. We also hope to add support for additional monitor resolutions, however if this feature does not get through testing in time then it will be included in the upcoming multiplayer patch.
They're aiming to have the patch released this Friday, the 8th of March, although — as always with software development — that date is subject to change.

Speaking of Black & White multiplayer:

The multiplayer patch was originally planned for early March, however it is still in development — this feature is definitely on the way though, and should be available for download in the near future. We will post another update about this when we release the next patch.
In other news from Feral, the promised Superstar Shepherd cheat patch is now available for Sheep:
For the weak

We felt that because those Sheep are so darned tricky not as many people as we would like were getting to the later worlds. Which is a shame because they are a hoot. This patch lets you access all worlds except Mount Mouflon (we had to leave in something to challenge you) and also lets you win any level with a perfect score. However for the purists among you, the Superstar Shepherd patch will still let you play the hard way, but how long can you resist its lure?

For the strong

For those who don't even want to be tempted with cheating, but still want to have the most recent patch then download patch 1.02 which fixes all known problems has descended to us from the mighty Similis (Sheep's Mac developers) to whom we are eternally grateful.
