WWE 12 hit the streets last November with a multitude of issues, the biggest probably being the total unreliability of its online servers. THQ has released the details of a patch that should hit both PS3 and Xbox 360 today and should bring some much needed relief. The patch comes in addition to a retro masked Kane that the company is offering as an apology for all the issues gamers have experienced which should be available tomorrow.
