Yooka-Laylee Day One Patch Announced and Detailed

Publisher Team17 and developer Playtonic Games have announced and detailed a day one patch for Yooka-Laylee, which is poised to release for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux on April 11, 2017 and on the Nintendo Switch sometime later this year.

The update will resolve a number of reported glitches and improve general performance. Perhaps most notably, the patch will also address the game’s camera, which has been criticized by many critics and individuals who got their hands on a press copy of the game.

Below, you can check out the full patch notes:

  • [Fixed] Camera will become locked in place after completing Gravity Room challenge in Galleon

  • [Fixed] Grappling the seeds as they break in Planker’s challenge causes erratic behaviour in Moodymaze Marsh

  • [Fixed] Game softlocks and has to be reset if the player leaves the course and faints during the Nimble race in Tribalstack Tropics

  • [Fixed] Softlock will sometimes occur on the Hub C slide if the player faints at the same moment as the timer reaching zero

  • [Fixed] If the player leaves Brreeeze Block’s room in the Icymetric Palace in Glitterglaze Glacier but remains in the world and returns to the same room then the isometric camera will be deactivated

  • [Fixed] If player is killed by a bizzy in hub B and knocked back into the archive door at the exact same time, the screen will still transition. When the player respawns, they will be unable to move

  • Performance improvements to various camera transitions in the introductory cut scene

  • Performance improvements to Shipwreck Creek and Hivory Towers. Various areas have been improved including camera movement

  • Performance improvements when using the light beam in the Icymetric Palace within Glitterglaze Glacier

  • Performance improvements during the House of Cards ball roll course in Capital Cashino
