Remnant II Patch 408,516 Notes: 

-- Crossplay --
We're thrilled to announce the addition of Crossplay, a highly anticipated feature in Remnant II! Now, players can unite against the Root, irrespective of their chosen platform. Team up with friends or discover open games across platforms and embark on your journey together.
DEV NOTE: For console players, Crossplay is set to on by default.  This setting will affect your ability to see other games (including friend’s games) within the game if their Crossplay setting is set to "off".   If you can't see a friend’s game in-game, then confirm that you have matching Crossplay settings. The "off" setting will prevent you from joining another game that have Crossplay enabled.
DEV NOTE: Settings on PC that use frame generation currently blocks the Epic Online Services Overlay, which is required for Crossplay functionality of joining friends in game. You can still accept invites using the Epic launcher prior to starting the game and join that way if you wish to use frame generation in game.

-- Aberration Domination Event --

The Root have seized yet another opportunity to unleash a horde of menacing Aberrations across all worlds! From February 29th to March 5th, gear up and face this challenge head-on. Defeat these sinister foes and collect the elusive Corrupted Shards, a rare material with untold potential. Head over to the enigmatic Dwell in Ward 13, where you can trade these Corrupted Shards to craft corrupted versions of some NEW special weapons. Show the Root that even in the darkest of times, our resolve shines brighter than ever!
DEV NOTE: This is our second big aberration event; we figured why not celebrate the addition of Crossplay with another Aberration event! We’ve added even more corrupted weapons to acquire, so group up and take on the Root!

-- Quality of Life --
]-- General --[
- We’ve added support for FSR 3. This option is now accessible in the Video Settings.
- Fixed an issue for players who started with Gunslinger Archetype from the pre-order bonus, but switched to a different machine or account which caused them to be locked out of their character.
- We’ve added support for friend invites for Sony PlayStation 5.

-- Balance --
]-- General --[

DEV NOTE: While we have a larger balance patch planned for DLC2, we wanted to make a few adjustments to certain elements to set the stage for the larger patch. While not comprehensive, these changes should provide room for a bit more experimentation before the larger balance patch.

]-- Archetypes --[
- Reduced Hunter’s Focus ADS requirement from 1s to 0.5s.
DEV NOTE: This means that the player need only AIM for half a second before Hunter’s Focus bonus is applied, instead of the full 1 second before.

- Die Hard now grants 1 Stack of Bulwark while it is unavailable.
- War Stomp now deals Explosive Damage.
DEV NOTE: We wanted to make Die Hard a bit more impactful since it is a Prime Perk. While having an extra life is great, the 10 minute down time is very long. Instead of shortening the cooldown, the Challenge becomes tougher until Die Hard is available again.

- No changes.
DEV NOTE: Medic is already powerful… what did you expect? Calm down!

- Pack Hunter no longer requires the Companion to be “up” to grant the bonus.
- Pack Hunter now also increases Melee Damage and Melee Crit Chance (30%/5% at Max).
- Companion Howl sizes are now affected by Aura size increases.

DEV NOTE: When the Companion went down (after taking too much damage), the Handler lost all damage bonuses. We now only require the Handler to be in range of their Companion. However, you should always try to get your buddy up, cause that’s the right thing to do! We also included Melee damage to their Damage Perk to make them a bit more versatile.

- Increased Quick Draw charges by +1.
- Increased damage by 50%.

- Dominator gains Explosive damage type.
- Dominator no longer grants a damage increase to Ranged/Melee on Sacrifice.
- Dominator now always grants a bonus to Mod/Skill/Explosive damage.
DEV NOTE: We received much feedback from players wishing to play the Summoner as a more Minion-focused Archetype, so we removed the damage benefits to Ranged and Melee, added an Explosive Damage bonus -- which works for Sacrifice and all other explosive options -- and made them always active. This should give more options for Mod, Skill, and Explosive builds, while leaving Ranged and Melee to other Archetypes. There are potentially more Summoner changes in the works.

- Added Melee Speed and Melee Charge Speed to Frenzy Dust.
- Added Skill reset if Thrown Vial does not find the ground after a certain period of time.
- Enabled Flash Caster and Throw Speed to benefit Vial Skills.

- Added Ranged Damage to Metalworker (Damage Perk). Max 25% at Level 10.
- Turrets can now Critical Hit.
DEV NOTE: To make Engineer a bit more viable with the Turret placed, we added a damage boost to the Engineer’s Ranged damage. Note: The Heavy Weapon itself is still considered Skill damage. This is to benefit their primary/secondary weapon when not brandishing or deploying a Heavy Weapon.

- Increased the damage of Chaos Gate from 15% to 50%.
- Chaos Gate now causes increases incoming damage by 15%. Lasts 10s after leaving.
- Power Creep now properly allows Mod Generation while a Mod is active.
DEV NOTE: We wanted to buff Chaos Gate while keeping the original design concept. It now grants a noticeable damage buff but the tradeoff is that the incoming damage penalty cannot be avoided by simply leaving the AOE. Players will need to be more careful after obtaining the buff.

- Stacks of S.H.A.R.K (Prime Perk) now fall off one at a time.
- Reduced the total duration of S.H.A.R.K. to 10s from 15s.
- Perfect Dodge/Evade now instantly grants 5 stacks of S.H.A.R.K.
DEV NOTE: The original S.H.A.R.K. buff lasted 15s total. There were many cases where it would fall off and require you to start building it all over again, thus making the Invader harder to keep active. We changed it so that the buffs fall off individually and lowered the individual buff time to 10s (for a total of 50s total damage increase). We will monitor the durations and make adjustments where necessary.

- Dramatically sped up the dig animation of Gold Digger.
DEV NOTE: It was tricky for many players to get a handful of fountains going during combat, so we basically halved the time it takes for one to appear.

- Erupt now deals Explosive damage.
- Deathwish now respects Kinship Trait again but does not get reduced by Armor (as it once did).
- Deathwish no longer kills the player and will instead leave them at 1 HP.

]-- Gear / Items --[

- Atonement Fold: Disabled Voice Lines for “I’m Bleeding” when worn.
DEV NOTE: While not really a balancing issue, the constant Voice callouts were pretty annoying, so we disabled them while wearing the ring.

- Point Focus Ring: Reduced Spread Reduction from 35% to 25%.
- Focusing Jewel: Reduced Spread Reduction from 35% to 30%.
- Focusing Jewel: Increased Recoil Reduction from 25% to 50%.
- Spread Reduction Fragment: Reduced Max Spread Reduction from 30% to 20%.
- Spread Reduction Fragment: Reduced Min Spread Reduction from 3% to 1%.
- Tranquility Font: Reduced Spread Reduction from 35% to 25%.
DEV NOTE: Spread Reduction was getting out of hand (and it’s still incredibly strong). We haven’t put a cap on it yet, but we may do so in the future. For now, we dialed the numbers back a bit so that if you want to turn shotguns into snipers, you’ll need to invest a bit more into it.

- Feedback Mutator can now generate Mod Power while a Mod is Active.
- Reprocessed Heart can now generate Mod Power while a Mod is Active.

]-- Weapons --[

- Fixed weapon scaling to properly cap at 3x instead of 2x (Level 10).

Crescent Moon:
- Overcharged Shots during Moonlight Barrage no longer shoot 2 Bolts.
DEV NOTE: Total damage potential of this weapon is unchanged. The only difference is that we no longer reward a non-perfect charge. You must hit perfect charge to reach maximum damage.

Twisted Arbalest:
- Primary Fire now refreshes any current Guardian Mark on hit while Mod is active.

- Nanoswarm now applies a very small Corrosive DOT.

Huntress Spear:
- Added a small Corrosive DOT on hit.
- Increased Projectile Speed.
- Increased Charge Speed.

Spectral Blade:
- Removed the ability to scale with AOE/AURA traits.
DEV NOTE: This was never intended. Slipped through the cracks!
