Fear The Wolves Early Access has started a month and half ago and we'd like to give you an update about how we are doing so far and what's coming soon.
First we'd like to extend a huge thank you to all of you who have played and posted feedback over social media and the official forums - we read all of it and it is the grassroots of our future updates.
We're well aware that the amount of players right now isn't as high as we'd have liked, making it difficult to deliver on the 100-player battle royale experience we had in mind at launch. We've worked a lot in the last weeks to adapt the gameplay and bring you more fluid and intense battles, while also reducing the matchmaking time.
Treasure maps leading to hidden stashes - coming in next week update
In our first update, we introduced small shrinking scenarios adapting the gameplay for smaller pool of players, and update three added the option to queue while spectating. We’ve also worked closely with players to improve the server performance, by finding the best location for our servers in Asia for example. We'll continue to work on delivering a smooth experience to all of you!
Locked buildings that need to be broken open with an axe to uncover high tier loot - coming in next update
The team is carefully crafting new ways to improve the overall flow of the game and bring you a truly unique experience in a decaying Chernobyl. Meaningful changes and updates take time, but we have great expectations with our newest patch to improve mid-game through advanced looting mechanics.
This next update is planned for next week and is packed with content which we’re really happy to share a first glimpse of today:
- Rework of the shooting feeling based on your feedback
- A new weapon: DMR SOK-94 for mid to long range combat
- Locked buildings that need to be broken open with an axe to uncover high tier loot
- Hidden stashes around the map, accessible through the discovery of treasure maps
- Improved wolf behavior and rebalanced resistance
- Dozens of other smaller features and bug fixes
Points of interest have also been reworked in this update, here is a small glimpse at what you will encounter in the Zone moving forwards.
Thanks once again for your support and feedback - we hope to see you soon in game!
