Tripwire Interactive have given us an sneak peak at the hotfix update coming later this week. Due to the nature of the fixes, the statement reads "we want to make sure they get some additional QA time, which prevents us from being able to deploy this update sooner. As this is a work in progress changelog, it may not fully reflect the final update as things move through the QA process.
These fixes aim to correct some of Maneater's most pervasive bugs affecting the players across all platforms including the common corrupted save games and a retroactive fix to landmark objectives.
Maneater Patch Notes - Hotfix Update
The below patch notes cover the 'all platform' hotfix, although there are also specific patches for each console.
- Added a backup save system where the game will keep two saves in a save slot incase one becomes unavailable so it can fallback to the previous
- Added additional protection to keep save files from being overwritten
- Added additional protection to the save system to keep saves from corrupting
- Retroactively fix for collectible and landmark objectives that got destroyed but did not grant progress. You will need to re-enter an area to trigger this fix in each area
Tripwire ended the statement by apologising "for the frustration these issues have caused you," and "thank you for your patience as we have worked to get them addressed." You can read the console patch notes or follow the updates.
