The team says that they “will continue to provide updates to the game, further improving gameplay and performance.” This is good to hear since our reviewer ran into multiple bugs during his playthrough, which dampened his feelings on the game. Our review was on the PC version, so it is possible that its technical issues might have hit that version the hardest. It is hard to say either way.
It’s also worth noting that this Day Zero We Happy Few update might only be live on Steam for the time being. The game is also launching on PS4 and Xbox One tomorrow so it’s entirely possible that it will make its way over to those systems when those versions go live. The update is also 7.8 gigs on Steam.
