    Some Common Questions

    So I recently got an update for the Reddit Q+A I was helping out with. A fair number of the questions were console based so I asked the guys at TTG to have a look at them.

    Now a lot of this has already been said before either as a response from the teams posted by me, by other mods, or myself. But I figured it would be worthwhile to post it here as well so it's all together.

    -----------------

    The console and PC games branched during development, in order for us to focus on maximizing console features such as the split screen experience and bringing a fully feature console experience to market. We are striving to continue to improve the game with future patches as well and greatly value input from the community!

    With regards to the increase in the size of the multiplayer games/dedicated servers and adding further features to the console version of the game (eg: marketplace/splitscreen online) -

    We are considering many future options and features or the game. At present, we can't say for certain but we know these could be very cool features. We'll keep the community posted on all future release plans - one is planned within the next few weeks! (I hope to have an update on patch 3 from the teams by the end of the week - Clare)

    Will Alpha 15 be added to consoles?

    While we are not able to announce an official date at this time for future patches and releases, please know we are striving to improve the game in core areas and will have more to say in the coming weeks.

    Will everything update at the same time?

    As console and PC are two different beasts from an approval and submissions standpoint the answer is “probably not”. The console version of the game will update in blocks instead of the more fluid update system PCs can employ on a regular basis. This is partially due to approvals needed from both Microsoft and Sony when updates are submitted.

    Because of the branching nature of the games - the games are very similar at the core - but will continue to vary in features in some ways as time goes on.


    Updating the console fans

    We are working on getting a regular message out to the Console players so we can keep you up to date with what's happening, as well as answering some common questions.
    (I am working on getting a regular version of the "Message from the Team" posted in the News and Announcemnts section. But please note, due to times when the teams are really busy working on the game, the gap between some messages may be longer than others. -Clare)

    ----------------

    As always, please don't post bug reports in these threads, please head to the Bug Reports section.

    If you do have suggestions of topics you'd like me to put to the teams for the "Message from the Team" sections, please post em below.

      Thank you. Excited to hear about next patch and new features. I read about possible wolves you can tame, motorcycles, and even a mini helicopter! But right now I'm just anxious to play without horde night lag. That's all I want right now. Hope that's coming soon.

        Maybe "features being worked on" first from the pc ports. Like focusing on 10 out of 20 features of A15 & why these in particular.

              Excellent news. This section had a tumbleweed feel to it.

                  I try to sweep em out the door but in busy times they tend to tumble on back in when I'm not looking!

                      Thanks for the update! I know a lot of our fellow console players have been dealing with the recent frustrations poorly (and loudly), just remember that many of us love what you guys are doing and can't wait for more of it!

                      Would definitely like to have the regular update from the crew, even if it's just in the form of "We're aware of problems x,y, and z and are working to get them smoothed out!" or "Here's what we're hoping to add to the console version next!"

                      I know a lot of that info is available, but sometimes forums can be a little difficult to navigate (especially when people get loud....) and the sticky post notices are nice!

                        Keep up the good work! This game has everything I've wanted in a game and is by far one of my favorites, even with the stutter and bugs!
