GreedFall’s First Major Patch Will Set Sail for Consoles Soon

Today, developer Spiders launched its first major patch for GreedFall on PC. The update, known as Patch 1.03, will set sail for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One “soon,” said the developer on Twitter. With it, players should expect to see changes to subtitles, localization issues, and a few quality of life troubles.

In the Twitter post about Patch 1.03, Spiders provided a link to the patch notes on Steam. As such, it’s likely that not everything listed in them will be reflected in the update’s console version. Still, many of the fixes are expected to exist across all platforms.

See the patch notes below for GreedFall’s Update 1.03 (PC):

Feature:

  • The size of subtitles can now be changed.

  • Invert X-Axis option added.

Quest fixes

Published by Focus Home Interactive, GreedFall launched in September to middling reviews. Aimed at action-RPG fans who miss experiences like those of BioWare’s past, the game seemed to have somewhat delivered on providing a solid RPG adventure. Yet, technological issues kept GreedFall from reaching its true potential. What it lacked in technical prowess, it made up for on some level with quest design and a unique world setting.

GreedFall from Spiders is available now on the PlayStation 4, PC via Steam, and Xbox One platforms.
