EDIT: For those of you having issues accessing the blog post, here are the patch notes in plain text:
TOTAL WAR: THREE KINGDOMS – UPDATE 2 BETA This is the second post-launch update for Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and chiefly addresses stability issues along with some high-priority changes in response to player feedback.
Our patching focus in the short term is very much on addressing stability concerns, though we will add extra items where they do not further risk stability.
Over time, we will move from immediate stability fixes to more widely spaced updates addressing balance and other changes.
There will be plenty more updates to come, so if you’re experiencing an issue please head to our support forums and report it.
HOW TO GET THE UPDATE This update is offered as an opt-in beta as we continue to work on further fixes and improvements. To get the update, please follow these instructions:
Right-click on Total War: THREE KINGDOMS in your Steam library
Click Properties and click the Betas tab
In the drop-down menu, select the update_beta option
Close the window and your build will automatically update
If you experience any unexpected issues with this beta update, you can roll back to the previous version by repeating the instructions above and, in the betas dropdown menu, selecting None. If you do experience any issues, again please head to our support forums and report them.
