    This is sooooooooooo fricken frustrating. No where on the net does EPIC say HOW to down load the 1.4 patch, (or any patches, for that matter, where to buy the DLC or season pass, provides no info about either. Where is one supposed to start doing the patch and buy the DLC. Nothings on the website about the patch or DLC.
    If the patch is automatic………..I’ve been waiting 12 hours for it to start. Nada. Please, I can’t be alone in this mess!

    I downloaded it all yesterday when they forced me too on Epic. 9 hours total since i’m stuck with rural DSL. Today they tried to force me to download it again and i just quit i was so upset. Epic seems to have issues.

    Downloaded the DLC, not sure how to download the patch, if the patch was downloaded automatically i wouldnt know. But now when i try to play the game the game wont save (every time i try to save, or there would be an auto save it says save unsuccessful), and i cant load previous saves either. This has basically rendered the game unusable at this point. Not impressed. I was so excited to play the DLC but now im screwed.
