I love the blog

But is there anything in the near future in terms of hero balancing?

There are heroes that are unused because they’re secretly really good (like shock trooper remegade)

And heroes that are unused because they’re actually just not good (a lot of constructors and ninjas and outlanders)

I can't really get into details but we have folks that are actively looking into hero balance and developing heros. Ultimately our goal is to make having a collection of heros, even ones that aren't your favorite, useful to have in your collection. Everyone has their favorite play style that we want to support.

What abbout the pickaxes?

We want to improve previewing of the harvesting tools in the front end too, but it's a bit more complicated than the glider was, so I don't have an estimated build for you.

Cheers, Michael Noland

I think this makes it official.

I had my doubts over the past few months over wether or not StW was going to be killed off like Paragon, but if this roadmap is implemented, there’s no doubt in my mind that they have no intentions of abandoning this game. The changes over the past few months have been incredible, and I’m happy to say I never gave up hope.

StW has always been a pillar for Epic. :). We're here for years to come.

Stupid question: challenge the horde is rensmed horde bash right?

I slotted a dragon's roar that I'd love to have back. Will I not be able to remove it due to it being an event item, or does that only cover items/heroes you haven't yet obtained?

If you slotted it you'll be able to unslot it.

What about the controls on STW ? Will we have specific controls ? Choose what we want ? Also will it be available on PS4 ? I didn’t understand this part Thanks for the good news!

All our changed apply to all platforms that we're on including ps4

It’s not three people working at the same desk. They have to communicate and compile everything correctly, so the community doesn’t flip out when something is wrong.

This guy. He gets it.

I take back every comment I've made on Reddit doubting Epic's commitment to StW. I also promise to never say "Paragon 2" again.

Thank you Epic for restoring some faith. StW has amazing potential in it's uniqueness and we're glad to see you cherish it as much as we do.

Aww, that's nice to hear. We're definitely not going anywhere.

We recorded some Steel Wool this week. You just wait!

I can't wait for the "buying skull trooper for 20vbucks" video titles.

Only if you slotted him can you unslot him.

What exactly is builder pro?

Control scheme that's meant to help make building easier on controller. First seen in BR, we've brought it over to StW.

Challenge the Horde will have all new rewards.

Yay controls improvements!

...and no mention whatsoever about aimed/scoped sensitivity in StW.

Hopefully they just forgot to mention it, though u/arsehole-o-matic isn't counting on it.

ADS improvements are on our list of things to do. The work is assigned out. Hopefully in a few builds, but I can't promise anything.

Great plans, and I'm happy you guys aren't abandoning the game.

One thing with the recruitment: could you add the ability to recruit from events you participated in? There's a few items I tried to get over the lifespan of the game, but despite playing the game, earning the tickets, and crushing the llamas, RNG flipped me a middle finger.

I wouldn't even care if the price was high for event heroes/schematics (10K Research points, 10K XP, 100 Manuals, and 100 VBucks, I would gladly pay), I just want to play as the classes that eluded me all this time.

Abandoning the game isn't remotely close on the radar. Save the World is alive and well. Lots more things to come in the months and years to come.

New rewards will be part of the improved Horde Bash.

Will we get a biome for plankerton too since the blogpost says nothing about that.

cough cough

What about level gating the lower people from joining high PL missions? And also, when is CV update due and how will players in TP access the quests/story?

We know it's a problem. We didn't want to mention it because we don't have a timetable nor a design we're fully happy with. Although there seems to be 'obvious' solutions, all obvious solutions actually require a lot of work because of the way our game is architected. It's definitely on our list of things to do, when we know more we'll share. We don't want to promise anything we don't feel confident we can deliver in a timely way. dev blogs excluded

Have i read that right? I can get Megabase now by spending Legendary Flux and Training manuals ?! or only Legendary and below not mythics?

Most collection book items will be attainable in the first version of the feature (heroes, weapons, etc). Not everything, survivors for example. Things we won't include are event items and quest items because those items need to be earned by participating in our events or quests.

Will veterans be able to experience the questline coming with new Canny Valley biome since everyone in twine peaks has completed the mockup questline thats in current PH Canny Valley?

Yup, you won't be blocked from story quests or anything. Doesn't matter if you're hanging out in Twine.

Is “Challenge the Horde” basically Horde Bash?


Originally posted by redditxboxplayer

Some good news, thank god :)

Glad they made this.

Time to get off till new stuff.

But one more question.

How will the quest line be if you are past canny?

Will they're be a way to go back and explore?

There will be a way to do the canny quest line if you're beyond natural progression. We won't hurt your current progression and everyone will be able to enjoy the story!
