    If you have been hanging out in General, you may have seen this thread: https://forums.undeadlabs.com/threads/apparently-there-was-a-new-update.49241/

    We did not know the update was coming. We did have a patch submitted for X1 certification. The publisher, in a good-hearted attempt to get the fixes to you soonest, realized the Lifeline part had passed and decided to push it out to you.

    Couple trouble spots, though - some of the Lifeline fixes work in tandem with Breakdown fixes, so until you get the Breakdown chunk of the patch, you may see some weird skins on characters.

    The other trouble spot is that this partial patch may uninstall Lifeline for you. You SHOULD be able to get it installed again by going to "Manage Game" (check out the last question in the YOSE FAQ for step-by-step instructions). If that fails, you will have to go to Xbox Support.

    IF THEY SEND YOU BACK TO US: I need you to get the name of the CSR you are speaking with, and email me *and* Nicole. We don't have the power to fix you, but we do have the power to keep complaining and drag in more and more people higher and higher up the food chain until someone does fix you ;)

    When the full patch does come out will the pre order knife not showing up issue be fixed?

    *sigh* That's the problem, no one can fix me. I'm unfixable . . . oh, wait, that's not what you're talking about, is it? :eek:

    I'm too scared to turn it on now. I'll be shattered if Sasquatch is wearing a "weird skin" and what if he sounds like someone else, that'll be terrible!

  6. Thanks a lot. I noticed that the night in Lifeline (YOSE) is still darker! Is normal or not?

    It is dark! I dont recall it being that dark on the original, it puts me off playing it. I got as far as escort that Dr Julienne whatever to her infested house. On the way there I rolled 2 vehicles in the dark then when we get there she runs inside, I follow and she gets dead while I'm literally swinging blindly and bashing execute.

  8. I was curious as to what the patch was since I didn't see anything about it. Hope the rest of the patch comes through just fine soon!

    Just bring grenades. In Lifeline, grenades are life.

    This.

    Got a problem? Throw grenades at it.
    Still a problem? Shoot grenades at it.
     
  12. Still a problem after that: Throw an incendiary marker, a drone artillery marker and an artillery air strike marker at it.

    And break a few weapons while you're at it.

  15. If you aren't resorting to your knife before death, you aren't doing enough to survive. ;)

    Don't forget you can also run over your problems too. For me running over a few zeds before getting out of the truck is something of a traditional warm up... and I'd say a prudent necessity for the CLEO drops.

    As for driving in the YOSE increased darkness.... spending a few minutes early on to push problem vehicles to the side, marking ramps and dead ends with noticeable vehicles helps. Later on as I rush back to catch a siege I'm often glad I did.

    So what is this patch? Is it like a Title Update?

    It is a TU. It was in theory coming out today or early next week, and we'd have patch notes, and everything.

    Then a chunk of it came out on its own.

    That won't happen again.
