After 505 Games revealed that a patch was incoming for the Xbox One edition of Payday 2, it arrived this weekend, but oddly Overkill didn’t release any patches, and when asked about what the 8GB patch fixed, the Payday Twitter account simply replied “fixes broken sh!t ;)”.
The tweet mentioned above has now been deleted and Overkill has now announced on their Twitter account that patch notes are incoming, but that hasn’t left too many people happy as a fairly hefty patch has fixed nothing more than the Crime.net screens repeatedly freezing.
According to many Twitter users and users on reddit, the game is still unplayable as the “failed to join game” error still persists leaving players with nothing more than a bot-filled single player title or to rustle up three other players to join a party separately.
Following Overkill’s support for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, many hoped that the current-gen versions would be a much better experience, unfortunately for many, that’s not the case.
The good news for those who bought the game digitally, Xbox Support is now happy to offer refunds for the game, something which many players are doing.
Though joining a multiplayer game is pretty broken, if you can find three other players to join you, the game is actually quite good. It’s just a real shame that it’s taken almost a month to roll out its first fix.
