We recently completed a review for The Dwarves and experienced a few performance issues along the way; the recent patch addresses some of the issues we discovered.

King Art Games have released the latest patch notes below.
A new patch has been released for Xbox One to improve performance, whilst a larger update is currently in development that will bring a few fan requests to the game.
With yesterday’s patch, the following problems have been fixed to make the game run smoother:
- Fixed a bug that under certain circumstances overtaxed the audio processor, resulting in stutter or freezes at some locations
- Fixed possible audio distortions in a few locations
- Fixed lag spikes that could occur in random locations, for example Mifurdania Marketplace or outside of Lot-Ionan’s Vault
- Fixed a glitch that could make it hard to select a way point on the world map without getting sick
To further address performance issues – especially during loading times on console – KING Art is currently checking if a new version of the Unity game engine will shorten the time needed to load locations and still guarantee game play stability. This next, bigger update is either arriving as a Christmas present or very early 2017 and will enhance all versions of the game on all platforms.
The Dwarves offers massive-scale, tactical battles in real-time and a brand new, physics-based “crowd combat system”, to let the players feel the thrill of fighting hundreds of enemies with only a small bunch of heroes.
Besides the challenging combat, players can dive into a deep story, based on the best-selling ‘The Dwarves’ series of novel by Markus Heitz.
