FreezeMe: update to be released this week in North America

FreezeMeFreezeMe came out last week in Europe, but it was released even earlier in North America. Unfortunately, at launch, the game was plagued by various bugs and issues. The good news is that those issues will soon be a thing of the past, as a patch will be released either today or tomorrow in North America.

The patch will fix quite a lot of bugs and various issues, but also bring some new features. If you live in Europe, you don’t have to worry about it: all the changes and fixes are already implemented in the European version of the game, which came out last week!

Here’s the complete list new features and fixes:

New features

  • Green statue added to the HUB, now you can change your Green Pigcoins there
  • The stats now display the time in minutes and seconds
  • Now R has more oxygen while underwater
  • Signs indicating the location of the cubes have text
  • Now if you are crawling and press the Jump button R will roll up and stand up quickly

Head after the break for the list of bug fixes!
