The rumors of a new ZH patch have been circulating around the community for a couple of weeks now and the rumors are found to be true! EA has announced on the official General's Website that a new patch will be released at the end of the month. Here is the announcement:
Patch Coming: February 28th
We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of patch 1.03 for Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour on February 28, 2005. On this day we will support the community with an expansive patch which will dynamically change the balance of the game, as well as fix numerous technical errors and cheats being experienced in previous months. For full details on the changes and improvements being implemented by patch 1.03, please visit back here on February 28th when we officially release it. Reinforcements have arrived! If you would like to be among the first to hear about the latest in the Command & Conquer universe in the coming months, please sign up for our newsletter for exclusive information, and stay tuned.
While I remain skeptical about EA's motives for this patch since a new C&C title is slated to ship later this year, this is still good news for those of us who still play Zero Hour.
