Hello, Eresys community!
We’re excited to announce the release of Eresys Patch 0.5.7, which introduces a map system, localization updates, and bug fixes. We’ve also included a glimpse of the future content we’re currently working on, so stay tuned for more terrifying experiences!
The much-requested map system is now here, but we wanted to maintain the immersion and challenge of navigating the Lovecraftian island without resorting to a UI element. Instead, we’ve introduced a physical map that players can pick up, equip, and use to help navigate the island.
Key features of the map system include:
- Physical map item found at spawn areas
- Equip/unequip the map with “M” / Right D-pad
- The map starts blank, with only the island outline
- Points of interest are added as icons as you explore
- Icons glow when near the corresponding location
Remember, the map is entirely optional, so players looking for a challenge or who already know the island layout can skip picking it up.
We’ve reintroduced and fully supported translations for Chinese and German languages. While 90% of the text has been professionally translated, we used machine translation for the new text added in recent updates. If you encounter any errors, please let us know, and we’ll fix them in future updates. More languages are coming soon!
- The “Disable camera cuts” option was added to the “Camera settings” menu
- The matchmaking queue button added to the “Join Hunt” menu
- The “Map” tab was added to the cult guide for players to learn about the map mechanic
TWEAKS & BUG FIXES
We’ve made several tweaks and bug fixes, such as:
- Adjusted % chances outcome when gathering victim blood on cursed ground
- Added a warning announcement for hosting sessions without internet or Steam connection
- Fixed bugs related to collision issues in various locations
- Other minor collision and texture fixes
Make sure to restart Steam if the update doesn’t show up, and remember that all co-op players need to have the same game version (0.5.7) to play together.
We’re currently working on a major update featuring underground environments, puzzles, jumpscares, and horrifying protoplasmic abominations. Keep your teammates close, and stay tuned for more details coming soon!
Thank you for your continued support and patience, and we hope you enjoy the new features and fixes in Patch 0.5.7. Happy hunting!
