Let’s get straight into business! This latest patch addresses a number of bugs and quality of life issues from top to bottom.
The patch will be rolled out to PC players today, Thursday June 22nd.
Currently we predict that servers will be down at 1PM Eastern with up to 4 hours of downtime to promote the patch. We will keep you up to date on our official Twitter with any updates or changes to the process.
We pride ourselves on communication and while we would love to share specifics, we currently do not have a firm release date for the Xbox One release. As this is our first patch on the platform, we have some learning left to do and we’ll share info as soon as we have a clearer picture. We will keep you posted.
See you in the arena!
