Hey all, we're going to do this a little differently and show you the upcoming patch notes a bit before launch. This is not all-inclusive, as we have quite a bit of content coming with the next patch as well, and we don't want to spoil the surprise in patch notes. After release we will update this post to be all inclusive. 

Counselors

  • Large items are now properly hidden for counselors operating the CB radio
  • Addressed some issues that were causing counselor ragdolls to behave incorrectly 
  • Fox's character model now properly casts a full shadow
  • Made adjustments to various counselor outfits that were behaving incorrectly
  • Addressed some issues that were causing players to become interaction locked
  • Fixed an issue with the baseball bat not properly calculating durability

 

Jason

  • Addressed an issue that would sometimes cause Jason to clip through terrain while in shallow water
  • Addressed an issue causing Jason's own location icon and morph reticle to sometimes not appear on the map
  • Fixed a bug that allowed Jason to interact with the fuse box while also holding a counselor
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to escape Pamela's Sweater stun by activating Jason's morph ability at the exact same time
  • Made improvements to the camera angles used for Part 4 Jason's cinematic kills
  • Fixed a bug that caused Part 7 Jason to sometimes behave incorrectly after being stunned by a pocket knife
  • Fixed a bug that caused some of Jason's environmental kills to allow more uses than intended
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to enter combat stance while in the middle of Jason's grab animation
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Jason's traps from properly triggering when a Counselor is entering a repaired vehicle 
  • Fixed a visual bug that caused Jason’s blocking animation to not show properly after blocking an attack
  • Fixed a collision issue with Jason's throwing knives

 

Perks

  • Medical Sprays will no longer contain extra charges after being dropped by a counselor with the Medic perk equipped.
  • Reduced the effectiveness of the Heavy Hitter perk

 

User Interface

  • Added more variation to the possible cabin types and cabin spawn locations
  • Added additional item spawns and environmental kills in the Jarvis House and Vacation House

Matchmaking

  • Added an option in private matches to toggle Rain On/Off/Random

Are there any plans for Xbox One X enhancements? Higher framerate? 4K?

Thanks -Paul

I hope so . I mean there is a noticeable improvement on Xbox one x but a texture patch would be nice.

Haha!

Does that mean when Jason puts a trap by a car door, counselors will get snagged instead of passing right through it as they get in?

I love it

Thanks @ShiftySamurai

I hope "a bit" isn't too long.

I'm hoping windows and Jason's melee has been addressed. The fact that they aren't mentioned and I doubt their content related is worrisome they won't be (if at all) addressed until sometime in the January 'balance' patch.

:lol:

you are fixing the "unable to interact" bug for counselors but not for Jason? what about the new servers and auto region detect recently discussed by devs on discord? how about the issues with when playing on dedicated servers in quick play in a party getting random disconnects for different reasons? i know you say more is coming later but thats content... you shouldnt hold out on talking about bug fixes especially game breaking ones.

That doesn't sound like an item increase to me.

So we have nothing but essentially more counselor nerfs and Jason buffs this patch. Not even the most Jason sided map in the game got touched except for making it more horrible for counselors.

The decrease in overall items, followed by the additional items in campsites will either leave the count the same, or be a tiny increase. Depending.

@ShiftySamurai any word on removing the invisible window barrier for Jason after counselor has climbed through? Or the critical bug where Jason cannot attack in CS after blocking?

That's not listed in the patch notes, so I do not have any additional information about it.

As I understand it: The repair part icons on the map will no longer be hidden by the standard (house, campsite) icons.
