The September Update is almost here, dropping tomorrow, on the fifth of September at 10AM CEST and bringing you a substantial amount of bug fixes.
If you’ve seen our Road Map, you know that we have some amazing content lined up for the rest of this year, which is why we’re reserving this release for bug fixes to make sure we’re ready for what’s to come.
While we’re hard at work preparing upcoming content, we didn’t want to wait with these fixes, especially since a lot of them were issues you reported to us after the Companion update and we wanted to let you play with the Companion to its full capacity before we add more content on top of it!
It’s not just one of the most anticipated and requested features from the Community, but also one of those we’ve been most looking forward to releasing, so we’re making sure to do it justice.
We hope you enjoy these bug fixes and look forward to the next update as much as we do!
Until then, remember the rules of survival: Destroy, dismantle, and rebuild!
