The latest Dark and Darker update stops players from running around nude, effectively nerfing the speed boost it gives.
Dark and Darker entered early access on August 7 on an indie storefront called Chaf Games as opposed to Steam, and the medieval extraction looter game has been receiving frequent hotfixes throughout the week.
Ironmace Games shared the details about the latest hotfix on Twitter, which went over the patch notes in more detail. While the majority of the fixes focus on class updates to Wizard and Warlock spells, as well as a few Bard changes, the most notable patch buffs the Armor Rating – which essentially causes players to receive more damage when hit naked.
Those who have been playing Dark and Darker may be aware of an exploit of sorts that gives players a character speed boost if they remove their armor and clothing. The starter armor for certain classes also isn’t great for protection, and players found that being nude with an additional speed boost was preferable.
Unfortunately, players will now need to put on some clothes as the patch has changed “the Armor Rating curve table”, so players will “now take more damage while naked.”
