Wasteland 3 Update 1.09 – Patch Notes 1.1.2 on October 14

inXile Entertainment released the “Save Scummers Delight” update for Wasteland 3 today. We have all the information about this update on October 14.

The Wasteland 3 Update 1.09 is now available for all platforms. On the PS4. Today’s update improves loading times and fixes some bugs.

 

Wasteland 3 Patch Notes 1.09 / 1.1.2

Highlights

  • Do you hate long load times? We hate long load times. Our engineers changed how the game loads levels, reducing load times by up to 60% on PC and 25% on console.

– As one example, on our PC test hardware a 38 second load time was reduced to 13 seconds.

  • Fixed an issue where combat could become unresponsive with use of the Chain Ambush Perk for sniper rifles.
  • Resolved several progression blocking issues in Yuma County Speedway.
  • Enemies are now much less invisible after use of Precision Strike.

 

Performance & Stability

  • Significantly changed how levels load, resulting in up to 60% faster load speeds across the game on PC, and on average 25% faster for consoles.

– Note: your hardware, save data, and which level you’re loading into can all impact load times. Your mileage may of course vary.

– As part of this change, auto-saves will no longer occur as a part of the level load, and instead happen concurrently. This can lead to situations where you’ve loaded into the next scene but an auto-save is still in-progress. Don’t close the game while the Ranger star is spinning.

  • Major Prasad will no longer crash your game if you exit while she’s still talking.
  • Additional stability and performance improvements for consoles that were too technical for the person writing these patch notes to understand and explain easily. It’s good stuff though. All good stuff.

– We’ll be continuing to target and resolve specific stability issues as necessary.

 

Co-op

  • Players can no longer attack companions that are in the process of being recruited by the other player, in case your partner likes to troll.
  • Fixed an issue where the Guest client could become unresponsive when talking with Hope Emerson and choosing to side with Del Hackett and her people.
  • Improved stability while in the Hire Companion screen.
  • Players can now use the keyboard in the lobby screen to choose game type, options, invite player, and ready up.
  • Enabled UI Narration in the Direct Connection interface and for multiplayer game messages sent through chat.
  • Fixed an issue with voice chat text-to-speech and speech-to-text.
  • [Microsoft Store] Resolved an issue where guests couldn’t rejoin a lobby they’d just left.

 

Quests & Gameplay

  • Resolved an issue where quirks could become unselectable during character creation.
  • Fixed a potential blocker with Medical Marvel not allowing revival without use of a Nitro Spike.
  • Resolved a rare issue that would block you from speaking to a companion.
  • The door in Yuma County Speedway leading to Liberty is now unbreakable as intended.

 

Misc.

  • Fixed minor graphical issue with the radio.
  • Some cinematic characters have been given microdermabrasion treatments and now have better looking skin.
  • Skill levels for recruitable characters now display properly in all cases.
  • Mission status should no longer display incorrectly after quest completion or updates.
  • Resolved issue where the spinning Ranger Star would permanently stay on screen after saving the game.

    I call bull. My game crashes 10 times more often now post-update. I can barely make it 10 minutes without it hanging up and crashing. I’ll be mid boring conversation and it’ll crash. I know games from the 90s with better stability then this junk of a game.

      If your PC wasn’t from the 90’s, you wouldn’t have so many issues.
