[h3][b]How to prepare for the update[/b][/h3] [b]Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store[/b] During Early Access, each update we released required us to close the ongoing settlements to avoid potentially game-breaking bugs. However, the changes included in Update 1.1 don't require us to do that. We're still running several test scenarios, but for the moment it seems the transition to the new update should go smoothly and you shouldn't even notice it. [b]PC Game Pass[/b] For PC Game Pass users only: we encourage you to manually back up your save files prior to the update. In the past, every update we released on PC Game Pass triggered the Xbox App's cloud save error, leading to lost progress. The new save verification system and an extra layer of backups that we introduced for the PC Game Pass version in Patch 1.0.5R should keep your save files safe, but since we have little control over the issue, we still recommend backing up the following two folders: [code]%userprofile%\appdata\locallow\Eremite Games[/code][code]%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\HoodedHorse.AgainsttheStorm_znaey1dw2bdpr\SystemAppData\xgs[/code] [h3][b]Stay tuned[/b][/h3] We'll release the full update notes when the update goes live next week. In the meantime, we'll continue to monitor your feedback, so please feel free to share your thoughts with us and vote for ideas that are important to you on our [url=https://feedback.eremitegames.com/]public feature request board[/url].
