inXile Entertainment has released a new patch for Wasteland 3 that fixes a number of issues plaguing the game, ranging from critical bugs to co-op problems.
The developer delved into the update on its official website, with an in-depth list of patch notes. The patch has gone live for Wasteland 3 players on Steam and GOG, but will only launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Store users next week.
The update fixes several game-breaking issues that would âcause character and quest progression to be lostâ, while also addressing other more minor in-game encounters, quests and a lopping issue with the Ambush Site intro. Buffs for Polly and the Cyborg Chickens have also been introduced.
In addition, the same progression fixes have also been applied to co-op mode. The patch also resolves âmultiple issuesâ that have caused players to face âan infinite loading screenâ, although inXile said that the problem is âstill impacting some players and are investigatingâ.
The developer also noted that co-op players should âensure their client versions match as mismatched clients can cause unforeseen issuesâ. Check out the full list of patch notes here.
inXile Entertainment released Wasteland 3 on August 28, three months after its original May 19 launch as a result of challenges from its shift to a work-from-home setting due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
NMEâs Ewan Wilson called Wasteland 3 a âsolid if unremarkable, combat-heavy RPGâ in a three-and-a-half star review. He said that the game features âa central narrative that youâll want to see to the finish lineâ but noted that âitâs hard to take any of it too seriouslyâ.
