Ironmace Games, the minds behind the immersive Dark and Darker, have rolled out its first early access patch. Among the most discussed aspects of this update is the significant wipe, resetting all player-held items and gold. While this may cause a stir among the player base, Ironmace ensures that character development remains unaffected with levels and skills intact.
As the patch gets deployed, players will temporarily be unable to log in, marking a brief hiatus in the game’s services. Those already navigating the game’s depths will find the matchmaking pool out of reach. However, a 30-minute window is provided for players in mid-match, allowing for a conclusive finish and safe log-off. The overall downtime is set for approximately 4 hours.
