Evil Dead: The Game brought its 4v1 multiplayer mayhem to Xbox a few weeks back, and we were impressed after our first few hours. However, the game did show its fair share of bugs and glitches in that time, which are now beginning to be stamped out by developer Saber Interactive.
The team has detailed the game's first major update, patch 1.0.5, which is coming to Xbox shortly. The changes focus on exploits, bugs and crashes, with further changes to come. Here are the full patch notes for Evil Dead: The Game patch 1.0.5.
Stability / Quality of Life
- Implemented various fixes to combat cheats such as speed hacks, health regeneration, fake nicknames, and character model changing. A larger anti-cheat update is also forthcoming in another update soon.
- Addressed an exploit where players could cancel animations to perform actions faster than intended
- Improved server stability
- Various bug fixes and improvements
- Fixed crashing after closing the pause menu on "Find a way out of the pit" objective in Mission 5
- Fixed loss of input bug when a possessed unit dies
- Updated balancing to Cheryl's healing attributes
- Updated balancing to Evil Dead 1 Ash’s healing attributes
- Adjusted values to Amanda’s Weapon Master: Pistol Skill
- Fixed an issue causing loss of input when Survivors are possessed by Demon, exit vehicles, or try to pick up full stacks of items
- Fixed an issue that caused a Survivor to be immortal at death or when using a healing item in the storm
- Fixed an issue where Survivors can deal 1M damage to Demon and deadites.
We're curious about that "larger anti-cheat update" coming in the future, and we'll be keeping an eye out for Saber Interactive providing a bit more detail on what it'll mean for Xbox users. For now, hopefully this update provides a smoother experience for players moving forward.
As for when this update goes live? We don't have the exact time just yet. Patch 1.0.5 is live for Evil Dead: The Game on other platforms, but the Xbox update is taking a little longer. It should be imminent though, given it's already live on PC and PlayStation.
