Over the weekend they laid out their plans for patching the open-world zombie-masher, with fixes for a variety of crashes, points blocking progress by means of the story, points resulting in a “death loop” (not that kind) and extra. They have not mentioned when precisely PC patches will hit, however seems like quickly?
