October 31 Hotfix Patch Notes
Happy patch day Valley Villagers!
We're so glad to see so many of you enjoying your new Valley experiences with Scar! Since the release of Scar’s Kingdom, we’ve been listening closely to the feedback you’ve shared through social media, Discord, and Customer Care, and are happy to share fixes for quite a few of these notable concerns today.
While the patch is now in the process of being released to all players – please make sure you’re connected to the internet to receive this – it may take up to 2 hours to receive it on your device. We recommend that you check back every so often if you do not yet see it available.
As with any updates, we urge all Cloud Save users to ensure your current saves are properly backed up to the cloud before switching the platform you’re playing on.
Please see the detailed list below of what to expect from today’s patch:
