Is the bug it having been accessible in the first place, or that it was removed by the patch? It certainly wasn’t in the PC version pre-EE, but was it an EE addition that the patch accidentally removed?

Let's call it this way: It's a herald of the future visiting early :P It wasn't supposed to be there.

Furthermore when I click on buy, it says no such content is available.

Lastly I read in this thread that v 1.02 is out but I only have v1.01 and it says the game is latest version when I check for updates manually.

This is on ps5, UK psn (although I am not in UK).

Included are the free DLCs. Season Pass 1 DLCs are bought separately.

1.0.2 update should be live in all regions in roughly nearest 3 hours.

Ok I guess I gotta check which DLCs are free and which are not. I have another question then - why cannot I buy them? :) And more importantly which of the Dlcs are part of main campaign and which are completely standalone? From what I can see, only the midnight isles dlc can be accessed from the main campaign, right?

They will become available around 4 pm UTC.

DLC 1 is a "five minutes before the final battle" side adventure, DLC2 is a separate story with results having a minor impact on the main campaign, and DLC3 provides a separate roguelike mode and some dungeons for the main campaign.

My (probably outdated) understanding is that the console patching process is a long and expensive one to get the updates approved by Sony/MS? Or are they much more lenient about updates these days?

It has its complications but we'll do everything to make sure they are delivered as fast as possible.

You don't need to start a new campaign, you will eventually be visited by an NPC to begin the quest for the dungeon.

Firstly, during character creation, in the kingmaker portrait part, all was fine except for Ekundayo's portrait which was in a low resolution, which isn't the case for any others. Secondly, in the faire at the start, there were bits in the area where my character could not pass through as though they were invisible walls or something. They could walk around them with no issue though.

Please make sure you have the latest version. All updates should land before 16 UTC. The invisible wall is a clear indicator you're using a pre-update build that's been frozen for physical edition few months back in development.

It's not a bug per se, but a temporary memory saving measure to make sure the release build doesn't have performance issues. Once we've ensured the initial stability of the build, we'll come back to this.

No, all patches are compatible with existing savegames by default. In EXTREMELY rare cases they aren't (happened exactly once so far, in the very beginning of PC release for a couple of mythic paths), we announce it in advance.

Ok thanks, but what I've meant was especially the PS5/XSX enhanced patch, for better resolution/graphic quality. In the Xbox store the game hasn't the Series logo. So it looks like it runs per backwards compatibility and not as a nativ next gen version.

It is possible once we ensure the initial launch stability.

for some background, i haven’t started the main campaign yet, i just wanted to hop right into the rogue like DLC but its saying i dont own it. and when i click it to see if i can download it from the PSN store it says that the content isnt there yet?

any help? the version that i pre ordered from my PSN app was the Enhanced Edition according to the listing

Hello! It is the enhanced edition. Free DLCs are included, Season Pass 1 is not a part of the Enhanced Edition, so has to be bought separately. DLCs will become available in a few hours.

I pre ordered both the PC and PSN versions of the game. I paid more for the console version, but the PC version comes with the Season Pass. It also now has a free upgrade to the Enhanced Edition. The PSN said we were ordering and getting the EE. This is apparently a lie. I am now being told that not only am I not getting the content I was told I was purchasing, but I now will have to make three additional purchases, prices yet to be disclosed, just to get what I had been told I had already paid for.

I think it is fair for me to be disappointed.

Console version is Enhanced Edition by default. DLCs (except the free ones) are not part of the Enhanced Edition, it's an upgrade on the base game.

Also why are the issues I uploaded two videos yesterday are still there in the updated PS version? I deleted that thread because I don't want that people cancel their preorder, but now it looks like the videos are indeed the actual state of the game.

You said that this issues were fixed..

Still waiting for the Xbox patch to be deployed, there seems to be a delay.

Invisible walls should not be appearing in an updated game. If they are, most likely the game isn't properly updated. Reports from multiple users confirm that the walls aren't there. If it's for some reason still appearing on a certain console type, we'll investigate it.

Ok thanks. I don't want to offend you but after the Kingmaker release desaster it's maybe somewhat understandable. Hope than the patch will arrived soon.

No worries, I understand the caution after KM release. It was pretty turbulent in itself, and we were quickly forced to end the update cycle. Luckily, the reason that prevented us from continuing work on the first game, isn't even remotely relevant with Wrath, and we will be updating it for as long as it is neccessary to provide a stable and enjoyable experience.

But it's a shame for KM, besides the technical issues KM is a really fantastic game. Luckily I could finish the latest version from KM on my Series X, but back than on PS4 it was nearly unplayable.

I just want to start WotR, the first cutscene surprised me in a good way (haven't seen any gameplay besides the trailer) and I really like the art style and the music. But I had a really big issue after I finished the first fight. My skillbar was broken afterwards. So I'm sitting here, waiting for the patch and hope everything goes well than.

Thanks for the patience! Should be a couple of hours at worst.

Couple bugs and 1 crash on ps4:

Big one is that some point in the shield maze I removed my rest spell in slot as an eldritch font and have since been unable to add any spells to it. I kept playing till I gained a new spell slot to see if it fixed itself but nada, I did notice my other party member with spell slots could still change em tho.

Other one was after a rest in that area where you first see the wardstone crashed down and you fight that like pincer attack with the orc paladin, we got ambushed and must have been holding L2 to bring up the character cards at the very start of it cause I could not get them to go away and couldnt do anything, was softlocked lol.

Finally the crash was during the load to the next area in that same area as the softlock bug

Edit: This was also last night and sounds like there may be a new patch. Will check soon if the spell slot thing is fixed.

Edit 2: just booted it up after downloaded the patch, yeah, still no luck with the spells.

Edit 3: Found the respec and swapped to a magus, this has fixed it.

Which class was your character, originally?

Out of curiosity, is anyone getting really low resolution character models across the board? Sticks out a lot more in character creation, but it’s a bit odd to see for a PS4 game; especially since it’s obvious that the game has pretty good graphics. It’s not quite potato-mode, but things like clothing, weapons, and outfit and eye colors are super low res for some reason.

Wrath is very 'heavy' in terms of memory, and this is one of optimization solutions to ensure stability. We will be looking if we can safely improve it after the launch dust settles.

you have to be careful on the timing of opening this menu or else it will remain open through cutscenes and loading, and sometimes load back in to not work at all.

This whole wheel is pretty wonky. It sometimes doesn't chain together the correct groups of people during RTWP combat, sometimes I select a character and then open inventory and it's on a different character, one time it glitched and was showing a copy of one of the character cards below the rest of them, and the menu didn't work at all then, it still just interacted with your usual on screen HUD (opening combat logs etc)

This is all pretty minor except the errors in RTWP, that's very annoying.

In the comment I'm responding to, you list starting a new game post patch as a troubleshooting solution. The only reason I bring it up is because I am excited to try a new game on Xbox, but don't want to have to roll a new character if the patch isn't compatible with my first one. Would you be able to tell me if its advisable to start a new character under the impression that I can apply the patch sometime after character creation?

Any clarification would be appreciated, thanks for all the work you guys do!

There shouldn't be any problems at all to start now, except that the game should behave better with the patch than without it, and provide a better experience.

"Start a new character" troubleshooting was more along the lines of "check if it the problem steadily reproduces after a restart", which may help in figuring out the root cause of the problem. Some bugs may reproduce every time, while others may do so only in a specific set of conditions, for example when a certain class or feat is selected.

Want to play Wrath so so so very badly but am so scared of it being a buggy molasses swamp. I will maintain this vigil with you brother. At least until I stumble into an extra $40.

Our ability to support Kingmaker consoles was very limited. Detaching from a parent company into an independent studio, we've lost ownership of the game back in 2019, and it's still the case by this day.

Thankfully, it's a very different story with Wrath. Being the owners of the game, we are commited to support, fix and update the game for as long as it's needed to provide a satisfying experience.

Now I do have to report two bugs I found that are annoying.

1) The "hot" keys on the action bar dissappear at odd times. So I can't choose spells, charge, vital strike, etc..... I did find I can get them back by saving my game then reloading. Now that's a pain.

2) This one hurts. Some times when I switch from Eqipment to inventory with characters to fast.....the "cards" to select equipment, inventory, character, etc freeze on the screen. The only way to get rid of them is to turn off your Xbox since you can't even get to the save/load menu. The game is literally frozen. It has happen to me 3 times in about 6 hours.

But otherwise great job on console so far. I did 4 runs on PC and have been waiting for the console version!!!!

What we need are the steps to reproduce the issue so we understand what causes it. A set of actions that leads to it.

Unsure if this one has been reported, and it may possibly not be a bug? Playing the PS4 version on PS5 and I was starting up the Midnight Isle DLC; whenever I go to choose a destination to start an expedition, it just keeps me locked on the map and doesn't progress. I can press circle to back out but that's pretty much it.

Known, fix in progress. Thank you.

I’ll let you know if it comes up again. I will note that this only happened once I downloaded the paid dlc’s last night, so there might have been a problem with integrating the dlc’s on my machine until today? Dunno

Hard to say. Could be simply elusive/appearing in certain circumstances. If you're able to steadily reproduce the issue, let me know.

Well considering they didn’t fix Kingmaker on Xbox I don’t have high expectations for the new game on Xbox either.

That had a sad, but solid reason. We've lost ownership of Kingmaker shortly after its console release in 2019. Studio gained independence from its parent company, but the rights for the game remained in that company. We couldn't speak about this earlier, but I hope this explains much now.

Wrath is a wholly different story, and we are commited to patching and fixing it for as long as it is necessary to give a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Then why not delay it? It's obviously not ready. Textures aren't just bad, they're nearly none existent in places.

Remember this is the "Enhanced" edition.

In a heartbeat I paid £50 for this because of Kingmaker and we got invisible walls, flickering shadows, dissapearing hotbars and textures.

A day 1 patch that isn't out day 2 and probably wont be until Monday

And god knows how long for a patch that gives the game textures.

Smh

I'm sorry, there is an unexpected delay with patch deployment on the platform's side. Multiple critical issues should be fixed once the patch hits, I can only apologize and ask to wait.

It's going to be patched in with one of the following updates.

Not sure if it's a feature or a bug but on Kingmaker, you could press the 'End Turn' button in Turn-Based and it would speed up the action so you didn't spend ages watching your character make 9 attacks.

This doesn't appear to be in Wrath on Series X so wondering if this is intentional?

Hi! Should be available via X button. Let me know if it doesn't work or if it's on the other button for some reason.

Good to know, but together with the textures it maybe doesn't look so nice, when you can zoom in too much.

Really hope for an upcoming SeriesX/PS5 patch for better texture quality.

Or for the day one patch :D

Yeah I know, this get old. MS is really slowly and I don't believe that they will release patches at the weekend...

We can only hope.

It only solves by closing the game entirely and opening again. Loading or going back to the main menu doesn't do anything for it.

Thanks!

Sometimes entirely blocking the description of the item. And it stays that way until you quit into console menu and restart. Happened to me twice and I’m 4 hours into the game. On PS5 and the latest patch

Known, but could use more data, if you can record a video with steps to reproduce, that would be really good.

I’m able to blindly do stuff after awhile like navigate menus, but even after quick saving / loading the TtA save page will still persist

Hmm, that's something new. So when you begin the tavern defense you have a TtA loaded instead? Or is there a logo/load game menu over the screen?

Playing on xbox, still haven't got the new patch yet, but I've encountered a few bugs I haven't seen mentioned here.

Going into any menu, character, inventory etc and then out to map screen, then bringing up the character selection it has 12 cards, 2 copies of each character. Go back into inventory and then back to map, now 18 cards. Been able to get up to 30 cards.

Retrained my kineticist into a sylvan sorcerer, can't equip any armor or weapons, I have the proficiencies.

Finnean can no longer transform into a crossbow.

Hello, please keep me informed whether the issue remains after the update.

Critical issue.

Arcanists cannot prepare spells when using the controller UI on the PC. Prepared casters set spells to their Spellbook by highlighting one and pressing "A." Arcanist doesn't have the same prompt. You can forget spells, but not add new ones.

I assume this is also an issue on consoles. If so, it makes the class unplayable.

It's worth noting that adding spells to your Action Bar is a pain in the ass, too. Arcanists display all learned spells when you open the Spellbook menu, with no indication of which ones you actually prepared. This is admittedly a minor issue, as you physically cannot prepare spells, but it should also be fixed. Ideally you fix it on the PC UI, too.

Known, working on a fix. They have an internally different code of the spellbook to all other classes, and that one glitched after the update.

If someone is taking the time to dig into it, please ask them to fix it so that when you open the Spellbook UI, the pop-up menu, it only shows the spells you've prepared rather than all the learned spells. That's an issue even on the PC.

I would expect that to be a part of the fix. Not sure about details, but I know that it was broken in a major way and the QA are busy dealing with that at the moment.

Definitely feels more polished than Kingmaker - real pleased about that.

Though the "nails" hex seems ... bugged? Problematic? Not working properly on my Sylvan Trickster, Xbox series S. I picked it at level 2 but it hasn't given me any claw attacks. With no weapons equipped it just defaults to unarmed strikes - which is a real pain because I wanted to play a natural attacker.

Edit: Checked with a witch of a couple different races. Nails may be totally nonfunctional on Console?

Hello! Noted, we'll investigate.

Through the action bar or the inventory. There may be issues for now on Xbox with this until the patch hits (we're waiting for 1.0.0.7 to be deployed)

Times the crashing happend:

1.When beginning the using the rest function at the inn (happend x1 times).

2.When leaving a buildings (happend x3 time).

3.When re training a character (happend x1 time).

4.after interactions with a character has finished (happend x1 time).

Other than the few times the game crashed its a really great game. I really REALLY love the pets, the expansive character creation and the story.

Hello! Which game version do you have? Is the game 1.0.2?

Apologies if these issues have already been mentioned. I’m playing on an Xbox Series X.

1) Action bar for all characters disappears seemingly at random during combat. Goes completely blank, no background or anything. Have to completely exit game and reload for the bar to return.

2) Cannot manually level up companion characters. After confirming that I want to manually lvl up characters, any lvl up choice/option disappears from the screen. Button prompts for next and back remain but don’t do anything. Completely exiting game and reloading brings the game back.

  1. Known, should be fixed when the first day patch finally lands (stuck on the platform's side for 2 days now x_X)
  2. We're working on this. Workarounds: Turn off autolevelling in the options or set a higher difficulty level.

I started main story first, then bought Ashes. I stopped main story progress after I reached the tavern for the first time and then completed Ashes.

After I did what I could and got summoned to defend, when I try to initiate the defense battle, as soon as I click start in the dialogue, it goes to the save data from my ending of ashes pops up and just stays there permanently

I’m able to move stuff blindly after awhile but nothing besides force quitting the game removes the bug I’ve blindly quick saved/quick loaded and returned to the main menu but it still stays there unless force quit I’ve tried pushing Y to finalize party

Only fix seems to be to uninstall ashes or dodge the defense mission

Just full screen end game save data like it’s asking me to select it I’m able to switch to cursor mode and open/close the grayed out character but that’s it.

Couldn’t find anyone else with the bug and was hoping I just had to wait until day 1 patch for Xbox

There's at least one more person. I sent this for investigation. Reloading the game doesnt fix it, right?

When a patch is coming? In playing on a Series X and it's unplayable, had to give up. The amount of bugs is huge, like a battle stop going for a minute or so, the action bar on a battle freezes regardless of the character, some spaces can't be walked to, the windows on the menu stop showing, so on and so on... And the only way to fix is literally closing the game and starting over again. I want to play the game, I pre ordered it! But right now is impossible.

Hello! It's a version frozen multiple months ago, which was supposed to be replaced by a recent build on launch. Unfortunately the platform delayed the patch and we're still waiting for them to deploy it. ETA is monday-tuesday. Sadly it can't happen faster, the ball is on the other side.

Sorry for the delay!

I’ve reloaded, tried earlier saves then initiating the quest again, tried saving during the bug, and then reloading, deleted the whole ashes character entirely but somehow it still has the end game data saved somewhere I can’t access to delete

Seems to be a bigger issue because the bug persists even if I manage to return to main menu on the main menu Yeah looks just like his picture

I can try running a new ashes play through but that’ll take a couple hours lol

You're certainly dedicated! I would advise simply waiting until the update, I've passed all the info to the QA department, hopefully they can invent a fix quickly for this.

Very minor thing, the paid DLC currently has no trophies associated with it on PlayStation. A I assume there are meant to be some, because it does have Steam achievements.

I've passed the information to the QA. It may take some time for the fix, as it's lower priority than stability, but usually it's possible to give achievements retroactively even if they didn't work at the time.
