The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Blacksad: Under the Skin are now available digitally in Europe due to a “technical malfunction,” publisher Microids announced.
However, the publisher noted that the day-one patch that includes “major bug” fixes and various performance optimizations is not due out until the next few days.
Get the full message from Microids below.
In order to enjoy the game at its fullest, this version of the game requires an update via a downloadable patch. The patch coming up later these days for the PS4 and Xbox One versions will bring required enhancements to the frame rate as well as fixes for major bugs and missing music (find more details about the patch below).
Before diving in the adventure of Blacksad: Under the Skin, we strongly advise waiting for this patch as we feel it’s essential to experience the game like the development team at Pendulo Studios envisioned it.
Please note that the November 14 date will see the release of the PS4 and Xbox One boxed edition of the game, as well as the PC version on Steam. The Nintendo Switch version will be released on November 28.
The teams at Microids and Pendulo Studios are hard at work providing everyone with the best experience possible in a timely manner. As per usual, we will be paying major attention to your feedback in the upcoming weeks. Other patches will be published progressively to enhance the experience even further. We would like to thank the community for your incredible support since the project announcement.
