Upcoming Game Updates: Promises for the Future - [Aug 14]

Survivors,

Over the past few weeks, we’ve spent a lot of time analyzing your feedback on the state of the game and folding that feedback into an exciting series of updates that we have been working for a long time. Many of these changes should reflect direct responses to the suggestions and feedback that you, the players, have provided, as well as additional updates that we believe will make for a much better day-to-day game experience.

The below updates are scheduled to go live in the game the week of Aug 19th with the 21.0.0 update.

Please note, while there are many changes listed below, there are still additional game updates that we are planning to make that will further address the feedback that players have given us. Those additional updates are scheduled to launch later this Fall and we will share more info on them at a later date.

We’re also excited to update the community on the promised Player Council initiative. Thank you to the players who have agreed to participate in this program, which kicks off next week. We’re excited to work with you on the below update and future updates.

We feel that these updates are a major step forward in addressing the feedback we’ve received from all of you. We look forward to continuing to iterate on the state of the game to make sure it is an experience that everyone loves and believes in.

For an even more detailed view of these changes, please see the full changelog here.

Doesn’t say you removed basic tokens from war crates, but at least the tokens themselves are better

Negative, once you receive the war chest, then the result is already determined (to my knowledge at least). Therefore, old crates have old options, while new crate will have new options.

Thank you and I look forward to more improvements moving forward!
