Happy Fettisdagen everyone!
What’s that? Most of you don’t know what we’re talking about? Well that’s ok - what it really means for you is that with this update, we will be introducing you all to a new limited-time event where you’ll be able to get your hands on a new item: the much-loved semla! In-game, this food item will quickly restore a small amount of health. Grab them while you can as they’ll be available from 10:00 CET Tuesday, February 25 until 10:00 CET Monday, March 2!
In terms of other additions in this update, you’ll see a change to the Alpine Unrest expansion - we’ve gone back and packed in a little bit more fun. There is a new Challenge Tree for expansion owners to work through, including some radical rewards in the form of musical emotes!
One improvement we’d like to call out is an effort to give the game a bit of animation polish by updating some of the animations for other players in multiplayer - most notably their idle and running animations. From now on you’ll see characters looking a bit less stiff and instead look more natural.
And like usual, below you can find a list of bug fixes, with some important crash fixes in there. As we’ve previously mentioned we’re digging more into crashes recently and are trying to address them as fast as we can. Currently, we’re rolling out some new processes internally that should help us get a better picture of the situation so we can address things better. So please share as much detail with us as possible if you experience a crash!
