Hey ArkCoNauts! Another busy week is behind us, and we continue to work on the next big patch to the game. So much work is going into it, but it will definitely pay off, and we look forward to getting it into the hands of players in a few weeks. We want the game to look at feel a lot more polished, and be set up for more of the upcoming features, even if it means a couple more quiet weeks on the development side of things. It will be one of our longer patch cycles, but the community is always wonderfully patient, and eager to see what's next for the game. We are very excited about the features we are getting in this time as well! The response to the current build has been very positive, and it is definitely starting to show more balance for new players. Making early crafting easier was absolutely the way to go, and players seem pleased with that, as well as the addition of basic torches and a tutorial in game.
We are 4 days from the next Greenlight pull on April 17th, so we really want to encourage supporters to get out there and vote, and get others to vote! We need to keep the pressure on so we can make it through. Once we're on Steam, we have a special surprise planned for the community to thank everyone for their ongoing help and getting us to where we are today. We're almost there, just keep up the good work! To get people even more excited, we have released a brand new teaser trailer. Get out there and share it, it's awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-TxCEw_bYE&list=FLkvWr4axxM9f8R2M-5TnFSA&index=1
On the community side things are quite the opposite of quiet. We have already announced our big Spring Showdown gaming event, and opened signups! Get in there and join the fun! That's not all we've got up our sleeves. We have also just revealed a massive expansion to the Divisions experience and we can't wait to see the reaction to that. Ever want to level up in a community, and
earn special rewards and privileges? Ever want to JOIN the corporations involved in the game's back story? Then you've come to the right place! Things are definitely going to get interesting around here. Show us what you've got, ArkCoNauts!
We are looking forward to a busy but rewarding rest of the month, and we hope everyone will be
along for the ride. Stay awesome, and we'll see you next week for the ArkCo Weekly News!
