Bad North

Bad North has received a new update on Switch. Raw Fury and Plausible Concept are now distributing version 1.04.

With the new patch, the focus was “performance updates which should be especially noticeable on Switch.” The developer also “improved loading times, fixed a number of bugs and updated the application icons to make the game look a bit snazzier on your console home screen.”

Below are the full patch notes:


  • Various improvements to overall framerate
  • Reduction in framerate spikes
  • Improved / reduced loading times, especially when returning to a save game late in the campaign


  • Fixed issue where the squad select UI would scroll incorrectly with gamepad
  • Fixed issue where duplicate squad order markers could appear
  • Fixed houses still burning sometimes when returning to an island
  • Fixed issue where portraits would sometimes become corrupted (show as plain white)
  • The “Move” command no longer gets deselected when you toggle rapidly between squads
  • Commanders can no longer get stun-locked when attempting to flee if some of their squad are already on the ship

Improvements / Tweaks

  • Updated app icons
  • “Game Saving” icon / spinner shows for longer
  • Highlight effects on flee / replenish
  • Slight buff to basic pikes
  • Fleeing an island resolves halfway to the fog (reduced waiting time)


  • Pinch zoom no longer snaps to max zoom erroneously
  • Pinch zoom is smoother
