New Features[]

  • Weapon Perks: Each weapon found has a low chance of having a random perk attached to it, such as increasing critical damage against non-humans, a chance to poison enemies, or ignoring part of your target armor. Upgrading a weapon with the forge will preserve the perk that was attached to the weapon. This is the first part of WolfEye's continued loot pass, which will continue with future patches by adding even more unique random gameplay effects to weapons!
  • Reputation Tab: Patch 1.03 will see the introduction of the Reputation TAB, allowing you to track down what Vendettas are still active against you, what Friends for Life you have acquired but also what Vendettas or Friends for Life are being dragged with any Companions you have recruited into your Posse. From this tab you can also check out in what locations you are currently wanted in.
  • New Aiming System Options: In an effort to make the aiming system easier to use for players of all skill levels, we are adding two gameplay options that can be tuned or turned on/off at any point, depending on your preferences. "Aiming Accuracy" when set to Permissive will make the aiming system more forgiving so that you will still hit your target even if you don't very accurately aim at it. A second option"Slo-Mo while aiming" was also added to allow the game to slow down a tiny bit while entering aim mode to make things a bit less overwhelming if you prefer action a bit less fast-paced.

New Contents[]

  • A new location called Wanderer Outpost, which is similar to Wanderer Caravans but can always be accessed.
  • Two new mine variants.
  • Jane's revolver, Ol' Blue, now has unique models and can be upgraded all the way to Legendary tier.


  • Revamped Companions' AI: A lot of love was given for this patch to Companions' AI to avoid most of the issues related to companions not engaging in combat, getting stuck and not following you or disappearing altogether. While Companions and AI in general will remain one of our core focus for the coming weeks, to keep on improving the experience, we are confident this update will make Companions a more reliable part of combat!
  • New Progression System: Patch 1.03 also introduces a revamped progression system, where Weapon Abilities you acquired now transfer between Journeys (unlike Class Abilities) so the progression between the 5 Journeys feel more connected in term of progression. Note that if you load an existing save file after patching, you will be prompted to opt in or opt out of this new system, but all new games started after this patch will use the new progression system. Similarly, when recruiting your previous Journey Heroes, ammo, money but also horse ownership are now transferred to the new Hero so you don't feel like your hard-earned dollars and belongings are just vanishing. To go along with those changes, we have also done a full balancing pass on the game economy (specifically how much junk items you find in containers and their value) but we have also revised the enemies level progression in secondary locations so that the game difficulty in those locations doesn't plateau as much after the second Journey. This also means Bounty Targets from the Bounty Board will now correctly progress throughout the game. offering 3, 4 and 5 stars Bounties as you progress. You will now also receive a relay from the Marshall when Bounties for key Story Characters are added to the Bounty Board so those don't fully unnoticed!
  • 60 Fps on Xbox Series S: For those of you playing on Xbox Series S, we did a pass of optimizations (which will also benefit to lower-end PCs and Xbox One and PS4). The result of that optimization pass is that the game now runs at a steady 60fps on Xbox Series S! We hope you will enjoy the smoother experience!
  • Added a delay during which inputs are ignored after smelting an item to avoid smelting the next one in the list by mistake

Bug Fixes[]

  • Fixed some pickup items duplicating when saving and reloading in secondary locations
  • Fixed shrapnel mine not properly saved and restored after saving/reloading
  • Fixed destroyable carriable props which were reappearing after being destroyed on save/reload
  • Partially fixed memory bloating over long playthroughs which could result in repeated out-of-memory crashes for some players (eg loading Grackle). This fix should decrease how frequent the issue might have been for some of you, especially on a new playthrough started with this patch, but might not be sufficient for walkthrough already well advanced for some players - so we are still working on further fixes for this and we will let you know of further development. If possible, we will try and release full fix for this via a hot fix without waiting for the next patch release
