KNOWN ISSUES

Our team is investigating the following issues:

  • Players reported that during Main Quest “For His Amusement” the objective “Investigate the Armory” cannot be advanced if they restart from save during the objective.
  • Players reported that during Main Quest “For His Amusement” Seyka may not open the door when scanning the datapoint “Access Control” after examining the three clues during “Investigate the Armory” objective.
  • Players have reported that during Side Quest “In His Wake” during objective “Kill the Guards”, enemies were stuck in the walls, making it impossible to progress through the objective.
  • For “Pangea Figurines” collectables, players reported they were not able to collect the “Green Raptor” if they left the parking garage after opening the trunk in which the collectable is located.

FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

Main Quests

  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” where restarting from save after the opening cinematic would despawn the machines players need to kill during the “Kill the Machines” objective, blocking progression.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” where the Bilegut could fall through geometry after a jumping attack, blocking progression during “Kill the Bilegut” objective.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” where under certain conditions the Bilegut corpse would not spawn, possibly causing players to miss out on a special outfit mod.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” where fast traveling during “Follow Seyka into the Tower” objective could lead to Seyka no longer leading the player upon returning to the quest area, blocking progression.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” regarding Aloy’s outfit and headdress during the opening cinematic.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “Heaven and Earth” where fast traveling during “Create a Path to the Facility Entrance” objective could lead to a progression blocker.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “Heaven and Earth” where Seyka could become idle during the crane and ballista puzzle.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “The Stars in Their Eyes” where a Bilegut could be killed in a spot that would block a generator, making it impossible to override the control node, blocking progression.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “For His Amusement” where restarting from save after pulling the lever during “Reset the Power” objective would lead to a progression blocker.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “His Final Act” where backtracking after destroying the heat sink could block progression.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “His Final Act” where progressing through the quest too quickly could cause an error in Seyka’s buddy behavior, blocking progression.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “His Final Act” where players might get stuck when getting close to the Horus tentacles.
  • Fixed an issue for Main Quest “His Final Act” where players would fall out of the Horus interior.

Side Quests

  • Fixed an issue for Side Quest “In His Wake” where fast traveling during objective “Investigate the Skirmish Site” could lead to a progression blocker.
  • Fixed an issue for Side Quest “A Friend in the Dark” where players could reach the valve wheel by jumping onto rocks and walls, skipping part of the puzzle.

World Activities

  • Fixed an issue for “Aerial Capture: North” where players would not be able to go to the start of the flight path after examining the improvised transmitter, making the activity incompletable.
  • Fixed an issue for Cauldron “THETA” where players were able to skip a room by sliding through the door to the next room before it closes.
  • Fixed an issue for Cauldron “THETA” where players could skip interacting with the controllable drone by jumping on walls and other geometry to progress through the room.
  • Fixed an issue where the Stormbird would not show up in the storm cloud until players restarted from save or died. This left players unable to start “Aerial Capture: West” and unable to collect Delver’s Trinket collectable “Mighty Pint”, thereby blocking the Errand Quest “The Delver’s Trove”.
  • Fixed an issue for the Stormbird in the storm cloud where if players were killed and then left the area, upon returning and killing the Stormbird the electric discharge would not open the locked doors on the island. This left players unable to start “Aerial Capture: West” and unable to collect Delver’s Trinket collectable “Mighty Pint”, thereby blocking the Errand Quest “The Delver’s Trove”.
  • Fixed an issue for the Stormbird in the storm cloud where callouts and tracks were present during Main Quest “To the Burning Shores” although the Stormbird encounter is not active during this quest.
  • Fixed an issue for Delver’s Trinket collectable “Music Box” where the item’s description would not show up in the notebook. This issue blocked the Errand Quest “The Delver’s Trove”.
  • Fixed an issue for “Pangea Figurines” where players were able to enter the answers to the Dino Digits Quiz before collecting the figurines, making it incompletable later.

Datapoints

  • Fixed a translation issue for datapoint “IN FOR IT” guiding players “northwest” when it should be “northeast”, possibly causing issues finding “Pangea Figurines” collectable the “Green Raptor”. Without this collectable, players would not be able to complete the Dino Digits Quiz.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
