    • Should no longer damage multiple targets; should consistently only hit 1 target

    • Range decreased from 3,500 to 2,500

  • World Tree

    • Upgrade costs increase to 125 / 275 (was 50 / 50)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a tooltip issue where long tooltips on equipped items would go off-screen

  • Fixed a tooltip issue where long tooltips on items in the bottom 3 rows of the Inventory would go off-screen

  • Fixed a crash that would happen when getting stunned during a cinematic

  • Fixed an equip issue with the Iron Reaper Squire weapon

  • Fixed a bug where clicking an Inventory Bag tab while the bag was open would cause the bag tab highlight to disappear

  • Fixed a bug where the Cybork would continuously try to stun Abyss Stones

  • Fixed a Dark Assassin bug involving hotswapping heroes

  • Fixed a bug where if you right=clicked on an equipped item on a non active hero while you were on the All Heroes screen, it would bring up the Item Enhancement UI instead of unequipping/equipping the item

  • Fixed an issue where only one of EV2’s nodes would display a stun VFX when disabled by a Cybork (Reflect Beam still has the issue for now)

  • “Trials” now appears on the Pause Menu

  • Flamethrower and Earthshatter Range Gambit descriptions now show the full text

  • Fixed lighting issues on several maps

  • Fixed several SFX issues

  • Fixed several collision, environment trap trigger and camera fading issues

  • (PS4)Fixed a bug where split-screen players could not interact with an item that was equipped

  • (PS4) Fixed a bug where Bag Options would not work while in split-screen

  

Known Issues

  • Items often appear as the wrong type when moving them into an inventory slot that is occupied until the UI is refreshed.

  • Radiant Power - Shards that were fully upgraded before the update will not move to new cap for Radiant Power. This is only a display issue, shard will show as upgraded to 14/5 level or similar numbers.

  • The issue with the names showing up at 999 on the session list appears to may have come back (on PS4)


The PS4 version also includes last week's PC hotfix changes.

tldr version:

  • Did not make any defenses more viable
  • Made several defenses less viable.

The opposite direction that I think most of us were hoping for.

Open your eyes half the turrets can't even attack through the geodes how about making some usefull towers eh? I'm sure the developers can't even be bothered to play the game, because if they did the patch notes would be quite different.

Why? Now you have to use your brain too...Or is it that hard? You dont want any challenge just spam the Chaos5 like most of players spammed Nightmare4 and moar for challenge? You got the challenge now and u cry for that?

Good patch, i see you decided to screw everybody and their mother... I actually felt like i was progressing fine before, could barely do chaos 2, now i can barely do chaos 1. I'm not complaining about the game being hard, i just dont like it to be ridiculously hard. 

Im gonna play something else (that Trendy cant *** up) until next patch. Then i will maybe come back, if Threndy have stopped smoking themselves high as *** before working on it. Have a good time.


P.S Really hope you fix this mess you call a game, i really like the game and just decided to actually spend money on it. I'm regretting that now.....

Awesome. Please nerf the flamethrower too, so I can uninstall.

Are you serious???

The whole Chaos system is broken! Huntress is KO: no traps, no PDT. What about DPS? Gunwitch is better. Trash the Huntress. And that's just an example.

This is NOT how you make the game more difficult. You're just removing the possibility to use more and more defenses, to the point where the meta will be "this defense and that defense". End. No other options. But... Nope! No. Other. Options. No variety whatsoever.

How is one supposed to use a cannonball tower if you stop projectiles? How is one supposed to use any trap if they get stunned for 15 DAMN SECONDS? This is such a joke.

Let me give you a Chaos 6 preview: 500 DU on every map, and 50 green mana only at the beginning of the map. No more. Great huh?

I had to rant a little. Please only take actual facts into consideration. The update is trash currently, and that's why you're getting so many negative reviews on Steam. Seriously, the only positive thing about the Trials update was the inventory improvements. But also not cause some people have 10 bags now and if you don't... well your max is 9! Have fun!

You really gotta rethink the whole thing here.  Until then... bye

It's the geodes that are broken... You can't make an enemy that renders half the defenses useless!

Just remove the defenses from the game then! Dammit.

One thing is to make the game more difficult:

Enemies have more health? Ok.

Enemies go faster? Ok.

Enemies can't be knocked up? Fine.

But you can't make HALF the towers completely useless! That's what the geode is doing! Just remove those defenses (like the cannonball tower) from the game then. What are they there for? To play campaign?

This has got to be the most passive-aggressive hotfix I've ever seen.

It's one of the worst patch ive ever seen...

Do you think nerfs motivates players? A lot of gamers spent money to reach chaos 4 or 5, cause with the trails update u ***ed up all 4 starting characters.  After collecting the gamer's money you nerf the 3 playable Hero, so the money is wasted and there is no apology... thats bull***...

Mayby you should try to balance the content and the loot... how do you think, gamers w/o the pre-Trails-gear can get loot for c4 or c5? Im not in that situation, but i was scared, when i saw the loot on c1 - c3...

So give us hard content and buff the classes... that is what gamers want and what we need... not nerfs...

Nerfed radiant, nimbus and Dryad in general. Didn't fix wall climbers, DU too low on maps, shard drop rate, etc...

Soloing C3 with about an 80% win ratio yesterday, blown out of the water 5/5 matches at wave 2 or 3 today. Good job. Hopefully Sony will give me a refund.

well hoped for something else....now dryad ive got before patch is nerfed..... towers that ive used got nerfed again, range is crap and after 60 ch1 no range shard (ramster my main dps towers die when i put them behind towers because spearmans love them....and when i put them to the side either mobs aggro on them instead of wall or flying bombers and bugs thrash them,,, but well no range so i need to run around lanes like with diarrhea).


Drop is still crap even if i join a ch3 game so im stuck with some items that are bad atm (hammer gun on gunwitch for example ). My luck is so grate that im getting only shards that can drop from normal modes or for jobs i dont have(maybe do it with item too ?? it will be great feature players will love!,,,sarcasm off)


i can rant more but its waste of time...i regret buying AL,Lav, GW (because when ive hit yt after playing a bit with standard jobs ive fell in love with them) and bags (i have now 3 bags like everyone else my bags for diamonds pre Trials vanished into abyss ) but well steam tells the truth ..... from the time ive checked yesterday steam DD2 page now it has ~ 200 more negative reviews so ,,,, players really loved this Trials update

Um jogo totalmente focado em PvE nerfando personagens ??? 
Que tipo de jogo faz isso? Aliás, vocês não só nerfaram, vocês acabaram com os personagens.
Provavelmente irei parar, junto com uma galera que começou a jogar isso comigo. 
Lamentável.

I honestly can't believe you made the game HARDER. I was just breaking into c5 and you nerf my stuff. You need to buff the weakest stuff not nerf the already weak stuff....    I am now Quitting. Maybe back after next patch
