Frostbite Major Update & DLC

Keen Support shared this announcement 13 months ago

    

    We are pleased to announce the release of “Frostbite” DLC and update. This update includes both free features as well as the option of paid DLC. Functional items that directly impact game mechanics are always offered as a free upgrade. Cosmetic upgrades are included as paid DLC content. This is how we structure all of our Major DLC releases and we hope you enjoy it.

Whats in the Frostbite DLC?

  • Frostbite Scenario 
  • Antenna Dish 
  • 6 Dead Engineer Models

CHANGES

  • Multiplayer PCU can be set to 100k in safe mode, and to 200k in experimental
  • The in-game workshop can now filter "Most voted" based on stars
  • Increased the maximum number of players in multiplayer games (4 on Xbox One and One S and 6 on Xbox One X). The Frostbite scenario can host up to 4 players.

If I remember right they said selected ones would be added to the game itself and probably on servers because they wouldn't be working through the console but the servers...

After the frostbite update on the Xbox one, I seem to discover a bug with the interaction functionality. The problem only happens when the user remotely controls a drone or rover a couple of times then after that when trying to pick items up or enter cockpits or interact with doors or anything the highlighted outline doesn’t appear and the user is unable to interact with anything after a remote Controlled connection. I have to reload my game in order to interact with things but even if I reload as soon as I control a remote control operated grid the interaction functionality problem occurs again, this leading to a a user being forced to manually reload there game.

I have that same issue but i just go into the "spectator" view thing on second last dial (the one before the voxel hands) and just move my character and it fixed it without me having to restart.
