Pentiments The first update has already been confirmed, with Obsidian Entertainment saying on Friday that a hotfix is on the way in the coming days. An exact release date was not given, but players got something better instead: patch notes. These early patch notes give an idea of what will change when the update is released, although there’s always a chance the update could add or remove some notes before it’s available.
Since the game has just been released, it makes sense that this next and first update will be entirely focused on fixing bugs that are still present in the game. Some of the most pressing issues are one that would cause players to actually get spoiled by the game’s own diary entries. That’s clearly not good for a story-driven game like penanceso it follows that the journal bug would be a top priority.
The early patch notes in front of Pentiments first update can be seen below with the journal bug at the top of the list:
penance Hot fix 1.0.1215
- Several issues that could cause spoilers for later acts to appear too early in your diary have been fixed.
- A slider has been added to adjust the volume of writing sounds.
- Fixed an issue where text was missing for users whose system is set to Turkish speaking regions.
- Other minor stability and presentation fixes have been addressed.
Again, Obsidian has not given a release date for the penance update, but it will be available in a few days. If you haven’t checked out yet penanceBelow is an overview of the game set in 16th century Europe:
“From Obsidian, this game is a historical, narrative game that focuses on character development, highly stylized art, and choice-driven storytelling in early 16th century Bavaria. Players play as Andreas Maler, a savvy illustrator caught up in a series of murders. over the course of twenty-five years in Tassing and Kiersau Abbey. Players will be responsible for conducting their own investigations to determine the fate of the community, but each decision will have lasting consequences and brings Andreas inexorably closer to the center of an underlying conspiracy.”
penance director Josh Sawyer also recently spoke about his time on the Fallout series (he directed Fallout: New Vegas, too) and said he’d be open to returning to Fallout one more time.
