While the update is currently only available for PC users, it will be rolled out across other platforms very soon.

Take a look below at full list of changes made to version 2.01 of the Wii U and 3DS iteration, and while you wait for the update to arrive, let us know in the comments how you’re progressing with the latest Plague of Shadows expansion.
