1.24.1 update is live on all platforms

Ambient sounds, new scope, Free Hunt mode difficulty fix and more

Welcome to Africa. Again. We have carefully monitored what bothers you after the Tikamoon Plains DLC (and 1.24 update) release and tried to put things in order. With this update, you can enjoy African ambient sounds, enjoy the story without being interrupted by unclaimable animals, or be free to set up difficulty for the Free Hunt mode. The update is live for all base game owners, even if you don’t own Tikamoon Plains or any prior DLC. Please check the patch notes for details.
