[UPDATE]: the patch is already live on Steam and will be live on Uplay within a few minutes.
As you already know, the patch 1.5 and 1.5.1 have been released and we have been monitoring the official and community channels. We gathered a lot of feedback, thank you again for your help! The Limbic team worked hard to address different issues and now I can share with you the list of corrections we are going to implement with the patch 1.5.2. The list is not final yet and can be changed. We are aiming at releasing the patch on Thursday July 26th.
Patch 1.5.2 release notes:
- Offline / Online saves compatibility first implementation:
o Currently only the progress of unlocking the campaign maps gets synchronized.
o Only progress that has been achieved while playing online will get synchronized. Campaign progress unlocked in offline mode is not synchronized. Progress that has been achieved while being offline is only available on that specific machine.
o The progress will only be synchronized if it has been achieved with a default (online) hero. Progress that has been made with heroes whose affinity has been switched (e.g. from blood to tears) or with custom heroes will not be synchronized.
o The progress of heroes (reputation/skill/level) within a campaign will not be saved/synchronized.
