shipped, it was quickly apparent that the game suffered from bugs, some of which regarded achievements. A title update is now available for the game. Here are the issues that are being addressed.
- The camera swaying motion when moving has been stabilized
- The camera auto-rotation in combat to frame targeted enemies has been significantly slowed and made smoother.
- Semi-transparency rendering effect added to enemies when they are in front of the camera occluding Crom.
- More health is refilled upon entering a new level.
- More health is granted after death.
- The Wodan fight (‘Land of the Dead’ boss) difficulty has been toned down, to provide a more progressive difficulty across the game.
- Crossbow damage and rate of fire have been decreased to prevent exploiting ranged attacks (which are intended for chaining up combos).
- Awards and Achievements have been fixed to work and unlock as expected.
