  • Fixed a few issues where Talion could fall outside of the environment, which would force the player to have to restart the game.
  • Fixed a few issues where a message that reads “Invalid ID” could appear in specific instances.
  • Fixed an incorrect tutorial message for poisoning a nearby barrel that would ask the player to hold the button rather than press the button.
