World War Z has been one of the surprise packages of 2019.
After recently making its debut on PS4, Xbox One and PC, World War Z stormed to the top of the UK video game charts.
The Left 4 Dead inspired zombie shooter sees players team up to battle hordes of undead zombies.
There’s even a wealth of player-vs-player-vs-zombie multiplayer modes that are surprisingly entertaining.
However, despite its popularity, the launch of World War Z hasn’t been without its problems.
World War Z developer Saber recently addressed the problems on Twitter, telling fans that a major update was in the works.
“Survivors! Thank you for all of your great feedback, the team is hard at work on fixing known issues,” reads a Saber tweet. “We also hear you on additional content & private lobby requests. Please continue to let us know on the forums so that we can help you out.”
In a post on the game’s forums, community manager Jellyfoosh said that a patch was on the way, before listing some early patch notes for the next update.
“This is a list of known issues that we are working on sorting out right now,” the post reads.
“We will update this as they get fixed. This is not an exhaustive list, but these are our priority. Thank you so much for your patience. A patch is on the way!”
According to the early patch notes, fans can expect fixes for game crashes that remove progress, as well as problems with weapon XP not registering.
Fans have also complained about not receiving Trophies on PS4, while Xbox users haven’t always been able to progress the ‘Key to the City’ mission.
