Weird West Update 1.10

WolfeEye Studios has pushed out Weird West update 1.10, or what the studio calls The Miners and The Restless update version 1.03! This brings in new features, bug fixes and more! Read on for the official Weird West June 21 patch notes.

Weird West Update 1.10 Patch Notes | Weird West 1.03 Patch Notes | Weird West June 21 Patch Notes:

Aside from a healthy dose of bug fixing, this new update adds some brand new Mine locations to the game to keep exploration and bounty hunting fresh. To help with exploring those mine sites, some additional aiming system options are now available and all weapons have also received a facelift with additional stats and loot variations. The game progression system has been also fully revised – with acquired Weapon Abilities now carrying between Journey Heroes – and the game economy received a full balancing pass to go with all this, under the benevolent eyes of the Wanderers, from their brand new outpost location, where Nimp Relics can now be purchased! Not mentioning Companions AI received a lot of love.. oh.. and if you want to keep track of all this mayhem, we are also throwing in a new “Reputation” tab in your journal to keep tabs on your Friends for Life and Vendettas! Finally, console players should be delighted to know the game now runs at 60Fps on Xbox Series S too! Check-out the patch trailer video and more in-depth details below.

New Features From v1.03:

Loot: Weapon Perks

In an effort to diversify weapon loot, Patch 1.03 will introduce the concept of weapon perks. Now, each weapon you find in the world has a low chance of having a random perk attached to it, such as, but not limited to, increasing critical damage against non-human creatures, a chance to poison enemies, the ability to ignore some of the target armor, and more. If you upgrade a weapon with the forge, it will preserve the perk that was attached to it and transfer it to the upgraded weapon, too! This is the first part of our loot pass, which will continue with future patches by adding even more unique random gameplay effects to weapons!

Reputation TAB

Patch 1.03 will see the introduction of the Reputation Tab, allowing you to monitor what Vendettas are still active against you, what Friends for Life you have acquired, and also what Vendettas or Friends for Life your Companions have brought along with them into your Posse, adding a clearer understanding of those systems. From this tab you can also check out in what locations you are currently wanted. We hope you enjoy the new Reputation Tab!

New Aiming System Options

In an effort to make the aiming system easier to use for players of all skill levels, we are adding two gameplay options that can be tuned or turned on/off at any point, depending on your preferences. “Aiming Accuracy,” when set to Permissive will make the aiming system more forgiving so that you will still hit your target even if you don’t very accurately aim at it. A second option, “Slo-Mo while aiming,” allows the game to slow down a tiny bit while entering aim mode to make things a bit less overwhelming if you prefer your action a bit less fast-paced.

Revamped Companion AI
A lot of love was given for this patch to Companions’ AI to avoid most of the issues related to companions not engaging in combat, getting stuck and not following you, or disappearing altogether. While Companions and AI in general will remain one of our core focuses for the coming weeks, to keep on improving the experience, we are confident this update will make Companions a more reliable part of combat!

New Progression System

Patch 1.03 also introduces a revamped progression system, where Weapon Abilities you acquired now transfer between Journeys (unlike Class Abilities), so the progression between the 5 Journeys feels more connected in term of progression. Note that if you load an existing save file after patching, you will be prompted to opt in or opt out of this new system, but all new games started after this patch will use the new progression system. Similarly, when recruiting your previous Journey Heroes, ammo, money, and even horse ownership are now transferred to the new Hero so you don’t feel like your hard-earned dollars and belongings are going to waste. To go along with those changes, we have also done a full balancing pass on the game economy (specifically how much junk items you find in containers and their value), but we have also revised the enemies’ level progression in secondary locations so that the game difficulty in those locations doesn’t plateau as much after the second Journey. This also means Bounty Targets from the Bounty Board will now correctly scale throughout the game, offering 3, 4, and 5 star Bounties as you progress. You will now also receive a relay from the Marshall when Bounties for key Story Characters are added to the Bounty Board so those don’t fully unnoticed!

60 FPS on Xbox Series S

For those of you playing on Xbox Series S, we did a pass on optimization (which will also benefit to lower end PCs, Xbox One, and PS4). The result of that optimization pass is that the game now runs at a steady 60fps on Xbox Series S! We hope you will enjoy the smoother experience!

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed some pickup items duplicating when saving and reloading in secondary locations
  • Fixed shrapnel mine not properly saved and restored after saving/reloading
  • Fixed destroyable carriable props, which were reappearing after being destroyed on save/reload
  • Partially fixed memory bloating over long playthroughs which could result in repeated out-of-memory crashes for some players (e.g. loading Grackle). This fix should decrease how frequent the issue occurs for some of you, especially on a new playthrough started with this patch, but might not be sufficient for walkthroughs already well advanced for some players–so we’re still working on further fixes for this and will let you know of further development. If possible, we will try and release a full fix for this via a hot fix without waiting for the next patch release
