Version 1.00 (In game version 1.0.34540.14335.20231021_0353) included on disc. Game only contains 10GB of data on disc with an additional 19GB of data being in the patch.

Unlike the PS5 version, the PS4 version does not crash immediately on boot, but the game still requires an update to proceed past the “Tintin’s Mind” chapter (About 1/3rd of the way through the game). Upon completing it in the disc build you will just be sent back to the main menu with a prompt telling you to download the update to proceed any further.

Other issues encountered:
- The trophy list never gets installed in the disc build so it is impossible to earn any trophies
- One of the doors in the first chapter is basically floating in the air and not properly connected to the wall
- The cutscene after completing chapter 1 does not have any voice acting.
- The camera in the Underground Cave puzzle clips through the rocks in the environment constantly which makes it more annoying to solve the puzzle.
- Multiple cases of objects being out of sync with characters’ hands.
- Multiple default UE4 placeholder textures spotted in the Egypt chapter.
- Game does not seem to properly track any collectibles that you find. The counter will always say you’ve found 0 collectibles
