Wartales May 2023 Patch Notes – All changes, fixes, and updates

Stamping out the stuttering.

While the official launch of Wartales was a month ago, it's great to see the developers still polishing what is already a fantastic medieval-themed tactical turn-based RPG. They've been asking for feedback via a survey to make more improvements. While I'd like to see better inventory management (read: any inventory management!), there is plenty of quality-of-life fixes in this first patch since launch that will be well appreciated. Below you can find the full Wartales May 2023 patch notes, which include changes, fixes, and updates.

Wartales May 24, 2023 Patch Notes

Wartales Performance optimizations

Since the 1.0 release, we have been hard at work on optimizing the game, especially the stutters that would occur during gameplay. Today’s update should drastically reduce them, mainly those happening during finishers or mini-games.
