The Finals Steam/Embark Studios

Fans have been having a blast playing The Finals — a destruction-focused first-person shooter game by Battlefield veterans. However, given that the game is currently in closed beta, it’s obvious that it requires a ton of updates and patches. One such update went live a few hours ago.

Patch 0.4 is quite similar to the previous patch as both are focused heavily on balancing changes, tweaks, and bug fixes. No new content has been introduced just yet.

The ranking system now has a Diamond League, and the responsive time of picking up items via a Gravity Glove is improved. Crane ziplines are made indestructible, and the camera shake from Cashout Stations is removed. Interactions with vertical ziplines have been made easier as well.
