Technical Changes

  • The process of updating the game on Steam has been overhauled to enable quicker updates in the future. Previously, each update, regardless of size, required the entire 30 GB game data to be patched on the hard drive. Now, only the affected areas will be patched, resulting in faster updates going forward. While this initial change necessitates a complete download, subsequent updates will be noticeably faster.
  • Enhancements have been made to ensure the stability of save data. As an added layer of security, the game now automatically generates backups of save data at regular intervals. In the event of a save file becoming unreadable, a previous version will be loaded.
