With less than 70 days left on The Finals battle pass, you’re probably wondering what Embark Studios is working on in the background for the hit PS5 and Xbox shooter. As players continue to encounter numerous teething issues, such as obstacles with completing daily contracts, the developer promises that fresh updates are set to arrive in the “coming weeks” to patch things up.
Yes, we can’t get enough of The Finals either. Like you, we’re exploring every possible way of stealing the Cash Out and pushing each of The Finals classes to the limit. Along the way, it is nice to earn some sizeable XP gains in one of the best FPS games around right now, and Embark promises those gains will return to normal after a daily contract tweak.
“We’re aware that the Daily Contracts are missing a contract today,” expresses an Embark Studios representative on the game’s official Discord server. While it is frustrating, the developer confirms that it “just wanted to express our apologies that this happened. Tomorrow we’ll be back on track and doing our best to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
The issue in question is that The Finals’ recent batch of contracts is actually consisting of four total objectives, rather than five. Typically, the game requires players to complete five of these contracts every day, alongside other weekly contracts too. As grinding through The Finals battle pass can be a somewhat slow grind, these contracts are incredibly useful for getting ahead of the curve. We did the math, and as you can see, it really takes some dedication to get through it.
Furthermore, the developer addresses future plans for fixing issues flagged by players in new patches for PS5 and Xbox players: “Also good to note that we’ve been keeping track of the current conversation around all of the pain points, and the gears are in motion for the coming weeks – expect some updates.”
As we’ve seen from the amount of shuttered or declining live service multiplayer games, it’s not an easy realm to break into, but The Finals is making all the right steps to keep players happy and engaged. Regular patches for broken mechanics is one thing, but the communication to players has been stellar, the cosmetics have been desirable without costing predatory amounts, and it’s already engaging in Twitch Drops campaigns to keep the buzz going.
The news that more updates are arriving in the “coming weeks” gives us even more confidence that it’s going to stick around and entertain us for the long haul. Alongside these forthcoming tweaks, players who purchased this awesome bundle may be entitled to a refund, following pricing changes from the studio.
