The developers often don't post changelog to "news" on Steam and update notes can be difficult to find - in this instance, Frictional Games shared patchlogs on their forums for all of their games preceding Soma. I've started adding game changelogs under "general information", for instance: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Amnesia:_The_Dark_Descent

 

Do you agree?

I don't see an issue with it, albeit it can be useless if the place linked to don't actually mention all patches. For example, that changelog for Amnesia you linked do do not include the v1.3.11 update, meaning it doesn't cover all updates.

 

 

Also, there's no reason to use the {{ii}} flag either, as the {{mm}} flag is more appropriate (changelogs are "more information", not regular "information"). I'd also move it below the official forums, since the changelog is a mere thread on the forum in question.

 

I've implemented the changes to better illustrate my point, see https://pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Amnesia:_The_Dark_Descent&type=revision&diff=381717&oldid=381415

I'm aware of this, I added a note to keypoints about added achievements. The changelog does however cover five years of updates.

I wondered which one I should use, I agree with you now. Thank you for the help.
