Hello everyone,

Welcome to the patch notes for Steam Hotfix #5. We will be releasing this update on the morning of Thursday February 10, 2022 Mountain Standard Time. We’ve got some good fixings hot off the griddle, so pull up a seat and tuck in!

  • Fixed multiple localization issues across all the supported languages. There will be more improvements and fixes in future updates.
