Age of Darkness: Final Stand - Hotfix Update v0.8.4

Protectors of the Light,

Off the back of our latest Content Update, Rebellion’s Rise, we are bringing you a new Hotfix Update to ensure your playing experience is as smooth as possible.

We are aware there have been some issues with the potential to hinder gameplay, therefore we have prioritised a hotfix to allow Age of Darkness: Final Stand players to enjoy the game over the holiday break without any interruptions.

Going forward, players will also have the choice to roll-back their builds to the previous Content Update should they wish to. This will be available from today and will be an ongoing feature of our future Steam Releases. Please note that our previous Content Update, v0.8.1, is currently available as a roll-back option.

[h3]To access the v0.8.1 Content Update, please follow these steps:
  • Launch Steam.
  • Navigate to your “Library” and look for Age of Darkness: Final Stand.
  • Right click Age of Darkness: Final Stand and go to “Properties.”
  • Navigate to the “Betas” tab in the “Properties” window.
  • In the Beta Dropdown select: v0.8.1_opt_in
  • This will auto-enrol you in the Beta Branch and trigger a game update (there is no password for this Beta)

You should now have access to the previous Content Updates from v0.8.1 onwards! But be warned, save files created in later Release Versions will not be compatible with earlier versions.

Our development team will be taking a break over the holidays and will be coming back in the second week of the new year, so this will be our last release of 2022. As always please continue to report bugs to our Steam forums or in the bug reporting channel on our Discord, as we will continue to monitor those channels where possible.

Check out the full patch notes below:

Where possible please ensure all drivers are updated to ensure the best and smoothest performance.

We greatly appreciate everyone who has taken the time to let us know about these bugs and crashes you’ve encountered. If you come across any bugs or crashes in the future, please report them to us either through the Steam forums, our Discord server in the ‘bug-reporting’ channel or using the in-game bug reporting tool.

Till next time Protectors of the Light…
