Does the game auto patch?

#1 Posted by Sackmanjones (4705 posts) -

The game is about to release on steam but I noticed an article from IGN detailing a patch that came out. But they also made a hyper link to the patch which made me think that it's a manual download only. So I was just curious if the game auto patches via steam or Uplay or do you have to go hunt these patches down yourself? Thanks duders

I imagine the Steam version would. I just bought it on Steam but am stuck at work. So I won't know if it auto-patches till later tonight. I'm guessing Uplay will auto-patch as well. Unless they just completely overlooked that feature... which wouldn't surprise me.

IIRC if it's got Steamworks, Steam will handle the patching. If there is a non-Steam version of the game, that might need manual patching. Applying a manual patch to the Steam version of any game has the potential to impact the stability of the game.
