The patch also adds Active Roll, allowing players to add bonuses and spells to their turns. Players will now also see their status effects and modifiers appear in the UI, rather than being calculated in the background.

Each character in the game is given a number of miniquests based on their roles. These ‘Background Goals’ yield new loot.

It is also necessary from the update to find supplies before building a camp. Players need food and materials first before this can happen and one can rest in a camp.

The full patch notes will be released along with the update on July 13.
