Evolve Bugfixes - In progress, Current Patch, Previous Fixes [UPDATE INCOMING]

Hi All!

We’ve heard your call to be more transparent on our bug fixes! To help do this, we are killing the old known issues thread and bringing you this shiny new hotness.

How it works:

  • In progress: Bugs in this category are high priority, and actively have TRS resources working to squash them

  • Fixes in current patch: This lists all the bugs that were fixed in the most current patch. Once a new patch comes out, this section will be updated with new info.

  • Fixed Previously: Any bug that was fixed in a patch previous to the current one goes here.

Please note, the list below is a collection of the bugs we’ve fixed or in the process of fixing, but it’s not an exhaustive list of every issue the community has seen or a list of all bugs we’re planning to address. As we go forward, we’ll continue to make the game the best we can and identify other issues to fix in the future.
