Release dates for patches aren't really set in stone until right before they come out. As soon as the developers know when they're going to release a patch, we'll be the first to know! Therefore I'd ask that you guys just be patient, and try to avoid making threads asking when a patch is coming, because there just isn't an answer. It's the same for what's going to be in the patch, too. Things are being added and removed from a patch right up until it goes out, so there's no way to predict what's going to be in it for sure... so, asking about what's going to be in the next patch doesn't do any good, either.Is there DRM in Darkspore?
