A preview build of the upcoming 1.8 Fall update is now available via the Steam betas option tab (access instructions below).
Whilst we continue to work toward the core updates, the 1.8 Fall update comes as a bonus that also enables us to add in some smaller features in preparation for the bigger updates.
We look forward to hearing any feedback and please let us know if you find any issues. Feedback and bugs can be posted on the Steam or GOG forums or alternatively you can join us on our official Discord server.
