Launched fine for me. Pleasantly surprised that (by the look of things) settings and keybindings have not been reset, as has often been with major updates. The disclaimer language did change, but that's fine

I would still like to see the 1.95 Changelog but so far, nothing...

I can't seem to start episode 4, or make any new wintermute save file, without getting a black screen. Older save files work fine tho. Any way to fix this? :(

Continuing from EP3 to EP4 went fine for me (Win10, Nvidia Geforce GTX1660 Super).

The cool thing is, that the Epic and Steam install are sharing the save location. So I was able to continue with Steam, where I left in Epic.

FYI - there's a known issue with Win7. Please visit: https://hinterlandgames.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408005055636-Windows-7-Black-Screen-After-Disclaimer-or-Starting-WINTERMUTE-Episodes 

Additionally, if you are seeing missing text strings that say things like "gameplay_EpisodeFourTitle", etc., this is because you are using a language mod. Please revert back to the default translations until the loc mod files are updated.

If you're experiencing other issues after updating to Episode Four, please send a note to our Support portal and someone will get back to you ASAP. Launch days are high-volume so please be patient! http://hinterlandgames.com/support

Will you be there to see it when it happens? Or will you give up during the wait? Only time will tell, now...

Sadly i can't get past the disclaimer screen on my ps4 just keeps on crashing and i've tried reinstalling, deleteing all my saves(had them backed up) going into safe mode and rebuilding database but nothing works.

It's available on XBox now. Thanks for your patience! 

In German it's called "sleep"...😛

To be honest I'm not so eager to deal with this 🤬 Timberwolfs soon...
