There may also be minor tweaks in balancing objects to attempt make them extra helpful, with Santa Water/La Borra being the one one candidate for a slight nerf, as they have a tendency to surpass virtually all the things else by an order of magnitude with little to no effort.
There shall be a handful of latest achievements, and a few the prevailing achievements will obtain totally different unlock circumstances (you received’t need to get them once more, they’ll keep unlocked if you happen to’ve already bought them).
It is because throughout EA the Moongolow/Cappella incident needed to be cut up over totally different patches, breaking the pure Stage development. That shall be reviewed and streamlined like for the opposite achievements.
Save Information will after all be left intact. We needed to undergo a number of iterations previously months to ensure issues work between PC, Mac, and Steam Deck, however, if something goes mistaken, please at all times do not forget that there’s a Information Restoration system within the Choices menu!
The sport will nonetheless run in Electron, so except for the brand new content material there received’t be a lot else notably related (extra on this, and on the brand new engine, within the paragraphs under).

- Work on machines that get the webGL not supported error, get a white display screen of loss of life, get a black display screen with a tragic face, or have the sport put in on a non-standard path.
- Repair enter points or the sport straight up crashing when a number of controllers are connected to the machine.
- Remapping enter.
