Console players rejoice! Oh, free 300k and 3k shards as well.
Insane, at least we get a miniscule little bloodpoint and shard reward as a "thank you" though right?
Damn, now I can finally get through 6 bloodwebs for free! /s
@Pulsar I really hope this helps you and your cause.
I think they have to submit patches to Xbox and Sony at least a week before they go live, so that might be some of the delay.
About time, I just want to play the game normally again.
I used to play on PS4 but I switched over to PC. I tried out the PS4 version last week and I really feel for console players, the game is in such a bad state.
Weird to announce it so far ahead of time.
They are trying to help other platforms though, I don't get the negativity here.
PEOPLE ARE BEING HEARD!!!!!!!!!
People on console have been asking for a fix for a while, and now they are putting in effort and giving compensation because they know they've ######### up.
This is a step in the right direction again, stop being so negative.
It was in the PTB patch notes so
I mean, it's awesome that they have fixes in sight, but they extended the event and now the fixes are scheduled for after the extended event concludes? That's pretty depressing.
I think part of the reason is to make sure everyone's clear that there will NOT be a new patch before the event finishes.
It's a step in the right direction until they go 5 steps back with the next mid-chapter update/next chapter.
The compensation is pathetic. 300K BP and 3K Shards is nothing.
Not only that, but they take THIS long with putting out an update that the console players who were having major issues don't even get any fixes until one week after the extension of the event, leaving them missing out on a lot.
No, I won't stop being so negative
I'm not playing on console, I don't know how bad the issue is for you, guys... But I wish the update will truly fix the performance!
Also, pretty cool to get free shards. Thanks.
I really really hope they didn't just fix the stutters because if a SSD fixes everything, surely the hdd has always been the bottle neck, if anything the stutters were more like the final form of an evolving problem over the course of two years, fingers crossed bois.
300k bp isn't much for how bad it has been on console, tons of people stopped playing due to it. They missed out on so much bp from the event it's not really a sorry... guess its lucky for pc, players who get the free rewards without the huge issues lol
You know,we already had to deal with absolutely terrible performance (so bad that it's pretty much unplayable/gamebreaking) for 4 whole weeks and now we have to wait another 2 weeks to potentially get a fix for this crap.
It's not a step in the right direction,because this update should have never been released in the first place.
The Resident Evil Update is just another big muddle finger to the majority of the playerbase and just shows how little this company cares about its playerbase.
Also,them extending the event and rift by a week just shows how ignorant they are.Like what does this for us if the game is still unplayable?
The compensation just adds to the insult.
It's basically a "Hey guys,we know performance is still bad and all but maybe some free points and shards can shut you up :) "
God I hope this patch fixes lag hard.
If anything they now at least should be fully aware of what is causing the issues and even if this is a band aid fix for the worse of stutters, moving forwards I hope it points them in the right direction.
Yeah...I'm not a game scientist but this is just baffling to me
"We're extending the event because so many of you are getting screwed by how awful your system is running. We're sorry and to make it up for you, we are extending the event a week!!! Also, the fix for all your problems are coming a week after the extension! *Breaks into Moana's "What can I say except, you're welcome!" song*
I just...I just don't get it.
I'm sure BHVR have seen the amount of console players who have quit over the past 2 months due to poor performance amongst their "stats". I hope this is a wake up call for them to improve performance across all platforms.
i know them for almost 5 yers they body of work just showas they it is not a wake up call just some hope that players will shut up and buy more dlc's and skins
Your saying "until they take 5 steps back", maybe they won't. That's quite pessimistic of you. I prefer to be optimistic about changes, especially ones that are obviously going in the right direction.
Compensation is compensation, they haven't wronged you or harmed you physically. Be grateful that your getting anything.
It probably took this long due to the two recent chapters (trickster and nemisis)
that should be plenty of time to remove the trickster from the game
So the people who played for the game weren't wronged...sorry you cant play for more than a month thanks for buying out game?
Cyberpunk was recalled from Sony store for less.
Yeah but the upside is that Its getting fixed, and yes they ######### up by extending the rift ect...
Maybe they should've extended the rift for a week after the fix, so people had a chance to play it?
Idk, the compensation is their only meaningful way of saying sorry. If they didn't give it then people would be screaming to the rooftops about no compensation.
PS4 and PS3 isn't majority of playerbase, but I feel you.
Perhaps I will finally be able to rest.
But I'm still much too cynical, I'll believe it's fixed when I see it
Hope is works out but one thing I have learned about this game....Believe it when I see it. I miss playing killer as I have only been playing survivor here and there because of performance and it's lead me to other games.
I really do hope that what's being worked on is going to fix a lot of the issues.
So is that just a performance fix for console players or PC too?
I hope so too.
You bought the game, and they have fixed it. That's not wronging you. They had a lot to do. Like nemisis chapter and trickster bugfix ect..
If they had just said " ######### all console players we are never fixing this go buy a better console" then you would've been wronged imo.
