Second Extinction

Supply Drop #4 – Patch Notes

After Pre-Season 6 was released, we quickly noticed that some issues had come with the update preventing you from experiencing and enjoying it to the fullest. With this patch, we hope you’ll get to enjoy Horde Mode and the rest of the content in all of its gory glory.

We have not forgotten about Leaderboards for Horde Mode, but we had to prioritize getting Pre-season 6 into a good state before biting into getting new content ready and pushed. Therefore it’s slightly delayed, but on the way.

If you run into any issues, let our support team know by contacting us here, and as always, we’re happy to hear your thoughts and read your feedback on the update and our game in general on our discord server, so share away and enjoy the update!
