Developer Nexon has launched Hotfix 1.0.1 for The First Descendant, a popular free-to-play looter shooter, to address several performance and gameplay issues.

Despite these improvements, criticisms regarding the game's monetization system remain unaddressed. The First Descendant has garnered significant player numbers, particularly on Steam, but its launch has faced challenges, including technical issues and incomplete reward distributions.
