Upcoming Zombies Fixes. Coming in our next big title update are fixes for some of the top issues we’ve seen in the community. Among them are:

  • Decreasing the amount of Wüstling zombies across all maps
  • Updating UI for Custom Match on The Tortured Path
  • Fixing issue with audio of some Hidden Characters dialogue
  • Decreasing the difficulty of the final step of the “Into the Storm” Easter Egg

Survival Maps. We’re still looking into ways we can make these more accessible, but do not have a timeframe at the moment for when that might happen. We’ll keep you updated when we know more.
