ZOS Community Manager Gina Bruno gave the following statement in regards to the next PC and console incremental patch for The Elder Scrolls Online in the wake of a rough launch for the Firesong DLC:
We want to give everyone a heads-up that the next incremental patch for PC/Mac is currently scheduled for December 5, and December 7 for consoles.This patch will include fixes for the following priority issues:
- Block being interrupted by dodge rolling or bashing
- Antiquity Leads that are currently unobtainable (Storm-Weathered Drafting Top, True Way Clay Dials, and the Frog Metal Buckle [the latter is only broken for Rank 10 Blacksmithing])
- A crash that can occur while using encounter logs
- Some translation issues with our recent release of ESO in Simplified Chinese
We recognize that this patch timeline is a week longer than the usual process. The nature of these issues are complex, and as a result, we need a little extra time to ensure the fixes are properly addressed and fully tested. There are also some other fixes included in this patch in addition to what’s called out above.
As these fixes are client issues – which means they cannot be hotfixed – we have to go through the normal client build process, which includes a certification pass. With the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays closing North American offices (including our platform partners) it’s going to take a little extra time to get the patch up for everyone.
We are working to get these fixes to you as soon as possible and if we could do this faster, we would, but we need to ensure that the build is stable and ready to go as well as fixing the issues. We appreciate your patience as we go through this process.
Thanks, everyone, for your continued support.
