We have identified and corrected some issues in our production process based on learnings from this release and are taking concrete action – both to fix the existing issues and to ensure future releases meet the quality you expect.”

Version 1.31.1 is accessible now – the 23.7MB obtain incorporates a considerable variety of fixes, together with a rebalance for monuments, a halt to fatherland turning into completely devastated inside 70 years, a repair for the Sikhism GUI, and a repair for the Esprit de Corps coverage giving “ridiculous missionary strength”, amongst many others.

Andersson says patch 1.31.1 ought to be appropriate with any 1.31 saves you’ve already made, though the studio can’t assure they’ll work. Saves created previous to 1.31 gained’t be appropriate with the present model of Europa Universalis IV, and we reckon the perfect plan of action might be to only begin recent with the patch utilized. Work is underway on model 1.31.2, which Andersson says will apply extra fixes in “the very near future.”

“We apologize if you haven’t been able to enjoy 1.31 and Leviathan the way we had hoped for, but we hope you’ll give it another look with these fixes in place,” Andersson wrote. “Our goal is for you to be able to enjoy it now, and for the foreseeable future.”
