Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance V1.16 patch notes have been shared recently and the fans are not happy. The promised crossplay between PC, Windows 10 and Xbox platforms is still missing.

It's been a week and a half after D&D: Dark Alliance released to mixed reviews. The game just got its first round of improvements after its launch date on June 22.

D&D: Dark Alliance's day one patch brought general improvements, bug fixes and made some adjustments to balance and difficulty. Tuque Games also shared a list of known issues at the time, but none of them have been dealt with in the new patch.

Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance V1.16 patch notes

Here are the latest D&D: Dark Alliance patch notes in full:

  • Improvements to multiplayer latency.
  • Voice chat remains enabled after returning to Kelvin’s Cairn.
  • Improvements to camera lock-on.
  • Improvements to the user interface.
  • Improvements to teleporting attacks made by enemies.
  • Instances where progression is blocked when a player respawns as a boss dies has been fixed.
  • Balance changes and tethering improvements.

While vague and somewhat frustrating, the patch notes are missing several bullet points that were promised on launch day. The have devs assured the player base that a post-launch update that would enable crossplay between Steam, Windows 10 and Xbox platforms is on the way.

 Also missing is the crossplay feature between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
