Ys X: Nordics Steam Sales Temporarily Suspended Due to Bugs

    A major patch is on the way.

    Clouded Leopard Entertainment (CLE) announced Steam sales for their PC version of Nihon Falcom’s Ys X: Nordics have been temporarily suspended. The publisher is working on a major update to fix the PC version’s bugs and performance issues. 

    CLE released Ys X: Nordics on March 14 for PC via Steam. Like CLE’s previous Falcom releases, the game supports Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean language options. Despite the game’s lack of English support, fans were still interested in checking out the PC version. Unfortunately, this turned out to be bad idea for week one buyers, since the game suffers from performance issues. 

    Ys X: Nordics Steam Sales Suspended

    In a statement released by CLE, company CEO Yuen-Yuen Chen confirmed that a new update for Ys X: Nordics is in the works, and Steam sales have been suspended. The company is offering full refunds for the game on Steam, and the sales will remain suspended until the update is ready. 

    The upcoming update aims to resolve the following issues in Ys X: Nordics

    • Significant drop in frame rate
    • Inability to change keyboard settings, and incorrect in-game keyboard instructions
    • Freezing during gameplay

    Here’s the full statement released by CLE CEO Yuen-Yuen Chen:
