Thanks for dropping into this update - we hope you all enjoy everything that is new! As always, we appreciate the continued support and we have shared the updated console roadmap above so that you have an idea of what to expect with the next upcoming update.

Will split screen come out on 1.0 launch?

Is the update live now or are we talking a couple days?

Hey there, thanks for the update. I tried to play the artifacts update version in PS4 but I cannot even start the game because controller does not work after the update. After pushing random buttons I was able to reach the class pick but that’s it.

Also I figured out the save data looks empty. Even commando is not available. Players in US seem to be enjoying the game but here in Japan we are waiting for the fix! Perhaps you’re already aware of this issue but I’m bringing this up just in case.

I’m in the US and having the same problem
