7 days to die update 1.17

The Fun Pimps have announced that a brand new update to 7 Days to Die is out now and available on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and with it comes the removal of a perk that was being used to break the stamina system in the game.

The 1.17 update removed the “Run Forrest Run” perk due to it being able to exploit and break the stamina system in the game. In addition to that, the patch fixed an issue that would cause items sold in bundles to become stuck in rented vending machines. Said vending machines also will no longer disappear once rest has expired.
