  • Glad to see they're fixing up the bugs. Have had 2 crashes with local co-op on the XsX and thankfully haven't had the experience of losing progress (as per user reviews on Steam). Looking forward to continue playing it! Beautiful game.
  • This is welcome news. I have lost progress on one of my saves as well as a few crashes on XBOX (project scorpio addition). Great game by the way.
  • Awesome, then I'll jump back in again, I rage quit when the game crashed on me about 10 seconds away from the end of a particular endurance fight. I was not happy.
