An exciting Two Worlds update just popped into my inbox this evening. For starters, SouthPeak Games has confirmed that a demo for the Xbox 360 version is set to hit Xbox Live tomorrow, Thursday, November 8th. The demo will include a sizable chunk of the single-player game world to explore, hunt and quest in.

Of even greater importance, SouthPeak has also revealed a complete overview of the fixes that will be featured in the upcoming free patch that’s been in the works since the game debuted. Many of the issues users have complained about, such as the horrid horse controls, laggy online play and shaky framerate, are key focuses of the update, which I’m personally glad to hear. I’ve really enjoyed my many long hours with Two Worlds thus far, but there can be no denying that it’s buggy as hell, so the patch can’t come soon enough.

Still no specific date of when to expect the patch to come out at this point, just that it’s “coming soon.” Read on for the full list of promised game improvements.
