Versus Evil has announced a 2.55.09 update for Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition on Switch. It’s expected to go live within the next week, and should address a number of issues.

Below are the full details:

Unfortunately, we missed a few bugs during testing and we have been working hard since launch to figure out what’s causing them and get them fixed. We appreciate your patience these past few weeks, and are very happy to tell you that the first patch should be live within the next week.

Patch 2.55.09 will resolve most of the major bugs that we have found and have been reported:

Patch Notes

Hotfix for scrambled combat log has been applied. If issue occurs, it only lasts for a second.
Stability is improved. Crashes have significantly lower occurrences.
Ranged Weapons/Effects now work as intended
We added a feature for saving camera zoom
Scrolling combat log is resolved
Items properties now apply to character stats
Island Aumaua Race now gets their additional weapon slot in inventory

Regarding Save Files and the Ominous Grey Screen of Doom, we have good news and not so great news. The good news is that the crash that was deleting the save files no longer occurs. This bug was still present in the first patch that was submitted, and a major reason why we canceled that submission.

However (as you may have noticed), we have not completely resolved the grey screen bug quite yet. We need a little more time to work out the kinks and make sure it is completely squashed. This does mean that if a save file has the grey screen issue, the file will become corrupt and unusable. It seems this mostly occurs after upgrading Caed Nua, so we recommend only upgrading what you must to advance the story.

But fear not! The other good news is that our team is currently working hard to get this resolved; once we have it locked down we will push out another patch so you can play to your heart’s content.
