Patch 1.06

PlayStation 4 Version Note: This patch is numbered patch 1.05 on PS4
Console Note: Consoles will also receive all 1.05 fixes with this update

We’re now finished with Patch 1.06, which is now live on all PC platforms. Unfortunately consoles are likely to have to wait until the new year to get these updates as they still need to go through the console submissions and game developers and publishers need holidays too!
