Achievements fixes details
Healthy and Powerful achievements should be granted automatically when loading a save that meets all the criteria.
Destiny, Hardcore Fan, Shardless, Lightless, Look at the Time and Immortal will be granted when the player loads the save slot they finished the game on and watches the epilogue again, as long as they meet the required criteria.
Attached to this was another message thanking fans for their "continued patience" over the past month. The team knows it's been frustrating but hopes everyone can now enjoy the game and look forward to further polishing it.
