Hi all, My apologies for the late patch notes, I've been dealing with a bad case of bronchitis of the Nurgle-iest scale for the last 2 weeks. Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and kind words via PM, Steam and Discord! Cheers, Warboss Sadaghiani ------- Steam BuildID: 1488554 (For those who are having issues when patching the game, you can verify that you have the correct version by matching the BuildID above with what you have listed in the "Properties" window, under the "Local Files" tab. If it's the same, you're good! If it's not the same, you would need to force an update by either logging out/in Steam, or choosing "Verify Integrity of Game Cache" from "Local Files" tab.)

Vehicle Changes: -Grav weapons now do less damage to vehicles.
