PS4 Patch (08.10.2019) - The Wine Cellar, new animations, Debaucheries of Derketo and more!

Greetings Exiles!

We got a new patch with another slice of free new content: The Wine Cellar dungeon. Unveil the dark secrets of the past unearthed by the greed of the Relic Hunters, who in their rally for treasure awakened a long forgotten civilization better left in the past!

We’ve also introduced new optimizations for inventories that should help performance and stability alike, new idle animations to increase immersion as well as the usual round of general bugfixes. We can’t wait for all of you to try out this new content and give us your opinion in the comments below!

And last but not least, we’re also releasing the next DLC pack: The Debaucheries of Derketo. To see all there’s included in it, you can check out the launch announcement here! This new pack is included for Year 2 Season pass owners and can be also be purchased separately.

Thanks again for all your feedback and support.


New Dungeon: The Wine Cellar

Follow the path unearthed by the Relic Hunters and descend into the ruins of an old city whose inhabitants used to summon and worship something better left unknown. New loot and challenges await for those brave enough to follow the trail down the wine cellar.

New and improved player character animations

We’ve added new idle animations to make your character feel more alive during those quieter times in the Exiled lands. You can see the improvements in by yourself in this link.
Let us know what you think!

Hola, los buscatesoros cazadores de reliquias ahora son interpretes y tienen 100 de vit, eso es así o es un fallo?

Hi, relic-hunting treasures are now interpreters and have 100 vit, is that so or is it a fault?



Nice reduction, from 100 to 112% :smiley: :smiley:

Edit: Ok, someone on reddit explained it :slight_smile:

Decreased the speed = slower and therefore it needs more time! The wording is still…

can we please have thralls animations like sitting down - chatting to other thralls and fixing thing. That you already have in the game like sepermeru NPC ,love to make my own town come to live.


Images the error

that thrall was before a relic hunting
No armor, No weapon, 100 vit,

Well, FC/GPortal should shutdown all servers. Fix the update, reverse the data back before the update and release it again…

The main problem for consoles is, that there is a validation process. So maybe for PC a fix will even come today (doubt it), but for consoles for sure not

Positive thing: your thrall has still the armor on. So its only gone from inventory…

Decreased the speed at which twine is crafted, it now takes two seconds instead of one. It takes longer.

It is unintended. Our team is looking into it.


All these bug fixes but I bet you still have certain weapons on 10 min timers. Fix please.

Why are the relic hunters on zero? Why can not you remove the armor and the weapons not what is it? This is more than frustrating!

This may be tied to some crashing or blue screening. I know after the last patch, there were issues with twine in the armor bench and it causing a weird error for some and crashing their systems. Sometimes computers behave weirdly. The CPU doesn’t know it’s twine, it is just data, and some data can cause issues with programming, no matter how silly it seems.
Here is a link to one bug report last month.

Raid time on PVP servers!!! kill all armies!!!
Sorry, but it is a shame. But since most clans didn’t return the benefits of the dismantling bench, guess it is now fair game to kill their 100 Vit thrall armies!!!

On a side, I wouldnt even be that effected if I would play PvP. was never a fan of the Relic hunters because of their name.
My bases are all protected by heavy armor volcano thralls (probably >80) :smiley:

And didnt know about this twine bug. But thanks for that input… Because I just thought, why did that even need a change :smiley:

Yeah, i saw that change, but had read about the issue. I was able to duplicate it as well, as we were in the middle of a new brick build, and i was gonna craft 10000 twine at once. It crashed me lol.


What is the file size for the ps4 update? I have to use mobile hotspot to keep my base from decaying until the cable guy comes next Monday but I need to know if I’m gonna have to buy more data to download the update. Please help!!!

Yeah, this is awesome, but could we get that newest DLC properly attached to the season 2 pass, because it’s not tied to it and so I can’t get it. Thanks and much appreciated.

What is going on with all the sighs and coughing and spitting from thralls? It’s driving me mad. And why does my character rock back and forth and bring both hands to his chest EVERY time I stop moving? I’ve been on the game 5 minutes since the update and I’m considering turning it off again even though I own a server

Apparently the game has some serious issues at the moment. Thralls losing equipment, changing hp , bulk twine making crashing systems, etc. I haven’t been on yet today to update my timer because of having to use hotspot so I’m going off second hand knowledge.

Btw how large was today’s update for the ps4 do you know?
