The Finals update 1.7.0 patch notes – Get ready for Super Bowl LVIII with QB Set | Gaming | Entertainment

The Finals has been given another big new update as part of Season 1. Launching in time for Super Bowl LVIII, The Finals update 1.7.0 adds the Cash Box QB Set to the game. Fans can check out the Football-themed set in the new trailer further down the page. Perhaps more importantly, however, are the changes to progression, which should make it easier to earn XP and level up the Battle Pass. As you can see from the 1.7.0 patch notes, the amount of XP earned has increased across the board, whether that’s completing Weekly Goals, to opening a vault.

Developer Embark Studios explains more: “This week we are rolling out some changes to progression, with several adjustments to how XP is earned.

“These changes will help you tackle the Battlepass and Career Ranks! It’s time to scramble!”

Elsewhere, the studio wants to encourage more communication among teammates. To help with this, VoIP has been turned on by default for all players.

It’s worth pointing out that the voice over settings can be disabled in the settings.

Unfortunately, however, it’s not all good news, because the studio is yet to fix the “explosive power of the red canisters”. The unintentional stacking damage will be fixed in the next major update, so keep checking back for the latest updates and information.

Content And Bug Fixes

Game Show Events

• Disabled the ‘Dead Go Boom’ game show event

 – Dev Note: We feel this event punishes melee users too much at present, so we’re disabling it for now.

 – We’re hoping to return it to the game, after a re-work, at some point in the future

UI

• Added a ‘play again’ button to the end-of-round sequence, allowing players in a party to quickly get into the next match

VoIP

• Set VoIP to be enabled by default on PC, with Push To Talk set as the default input (existing players)

• Set VoIP to be enabled by default on console, with Voice Activated set as the default input (existing players)

 – Dev Note: we want to encourage more teamplay in matches, and enabling VoIP for all players is part of that effort.

 – Players can disable VoIP via settings. We previously made this change in update 1.5 for new players and saw positive results!
