Patch 7

Last night we released Patch 7 (Build 1880), quick on the heels of Patch 6. This is another small one, mostly to fix a serious multiplayer error caused by using a special version of Unity required for the Xbox One version.

New & Changed Features for Build 1880
  • Added a main menu button to join the Overload server on Discord.

Fixes for Build 1880
  • Fixed multiplayer disconnection issues introduced in Build 1875.
  • Removed code for restarting Dedicated Servers after each match because it seemed to have been causing troubles.
  • Fixed an issue with the HUD disappearing with custom loadouts in private matches.

Patch 6 Released

We have released Patch 6 (Build 1875) for Overload. This is a fairly small patch. See details below.

New & Changed Features for Build 1875
  • Added caching for leaderboard data.
  • Dedicated Servers will now restart after each match. This will eliminate the need to manually restart servers when they sometimes have problems.
  • Changed shadow settings so that they are no longer resource hogs

Fixes for Build 1875
  • Fixed "Jump to My Score" button on leaderboards.
  • Fixed a small error with some robot AI.
  • Fixed an issue with a few of the DLC levels having decal shadows on, which led to a *lot* more shadows than intended.
  • Fixed some small issues in the DLC levels.
  • Fixed some DLC text, including credits for Hendrik Martin 'Yinut' Hendrikson.
