    Hi everyone We Happy Few 1.4 is beginning to roll out across various platforms. Thank you for your patience, I know many of you have been waiting some time for this. Release Timing Timing is as followings: - Steam today (Windows: 1.4.71191) - PS4 Tuesday/Wednesday depending on rollout from Sony (PS4: 1.4.71201) - Xbox Tuesday/Wednesday depending on rollout from Microsoft (Xbox: 1.4.71195) - GOG.com tomorrow (Windows: build to be confirmed) - Windows 10 Store/UWP eta not available yet as submission process is long (Windows 10: 1.4.71207) This timing and these build numbers may change if we find any random issues in final, final QA, in which case I will update here with the info. Patch Summary The second post-launch patch for We Happy Few addresses performance optimization, crash fixes, progression blockers, some gameplay bugs, and a couple of small balance issues. This patch fixes a significant number of issues, but we’re not done yet. We will continue to work on bugs, performance improvements and gameplay fixes after this update. General Bugs/Stability • Performance Improvements: CPU/hard drive optimizations implemented, meaning that there will be improved framerate and fewer textures and objects showing up at the wrong level of detail. • Performance Improvements: Memory leaks fixed meaning that the game should crash much less frequently on console. • NPCs will no longer teleport/attach directly to you during combat. • Fixed black screen transitions on weather changes when travelling through the world. • The VO line 'Arthur Hastings! I thought you'd turned into a-- oh, never mind, here you are!' no longer occurs when playing as Sally or Ollie. • Fixed rare cases where players reported seeing duplicate assets (Doors, and even cinematic characters). • Crashes fixes for a wide range of issues. • Fast Traveling to a hatch farther than around 200m after interacting with the package no longer crashes the game. • Arthur - Fixed game occasionally crashing when a loading screen occurs after reaching the Parade District and going back to the Garden District. • Fixed frequent crash when reloading a saved game in the parade district a few seconds after loading is over. • Fixed crash caused by save/loading in Apple Holm station before point of no return. • Fixed crash caused by reloading the autosave created every time Arthur crosses from Barrow Holm to Eel Pie Holm when Arthur has progressed a good distance from the bridge. • Fixed the game occasionally crashing at the end of the unlock animation when acquiring the documents portraying Faraday's whereabouts in the Bobby HQ. • Fixed crash when giving NPC a quest item and immediately fast traveling. • Fixed crash in Malpractice of Doctors caused by save/loading inside the encounter • Fixed crash when moving into combat while on the Plassey Bridge. • Fixed crash caused by fast traveling or streaming in/out after dropping the possibly heinous package. • Fixed occasional crashing during the loading screen when fast traveling to the Barrow Holm Track Access Hatch from another island. • Fixed occasional crash when answering the door and skipping the cutscene as Sally. • Fixed occasional crash after Arthur’s Hostile Takeover/document control checkpoint. • Fixed crash in The Still Of The Night when rapidly filling bottles with strange alcohol. • Fixed many small / one off crashes.

    First, we have the elusive half-stair case. Built cleverly into the wall to be impassable! Second, a (half) decent shot of a pretty sweet building I ran into on one of my earlier playthroughs
