Naughty Dog has announced that patch 1.08 and 1.09 will both roll out next Monday, the 9th of April. Both title updates usher in a fair few significant tweaks to gameplay including weapon/medal kickback balances.
Most notably, 1.08 will include the long-awaited option to toggle DLC on and off. Naughty Dog has also warned players to save/upload their precious cinema files as they will become corrupted after installing 1.08, thereby crashing the game if selected from the in-game menu. For a full list of patch notes read below and be sure to check out the accompanying videos too.
