The hotfix introduces a number of fixes for the game’s bugs and crashes on PC and consoles. The hotfix also includes improvements to memory management and stability for consoles, which is expected to reduce the number of crashes.
Most notably, the PC-specific patch removes the 8MB save file limit. Prior to the update, if players crafted and collected too many items in their inventory, their save files would exceed 8MB and become corrupted. However, the developer also notes that the update will not fix save files that have already become corrupted prior to the patch.
The hotfix also included a bug fix for one of the game’s quests. The NPC Dum Dum will no longer be missing during Totentanz entrance during the Second Conflict mission. Check out the full patch notes here.
