the new patch 18.104.22.168 is out now!
Be careful the patch notes could contain spoilers to some extent, we try to avoid them as much as possible, though.
Thanks to gavrant and DanielCoffey who contributed a lot to this patch.
If you encounter a lot of crashes in general, try turning "OSAllocators" on. The setting is located in the optimization tab of the launcher.
Furthermore we want to apologize because the game already updated ~1.7GB twice for everyone who was online yesterday evening. The patch which we uploaded was crashing the game for everyone, so we immediately reverted it after noticing.
Sorry if you have slow connection speed or limited data volume!
This patch is bigger in size than the previous ones.
If you encounter issues after the update, make sure to verify your game files!
