0.64.00 Experimental Update: New Hog, Giant Crab, Localization and more!

Update 0.64.00 Splash.png

Hey everyone,

A new experimental build 0.64.00 is up!

This build features new Localization! This build is highly experimental as the localization work has been all-encompassing. We will be monitoring bug reports closely and we appreciate the feedback.

You may not notice much as everything is still being localized in English for this shakedown build. One of the most obvious changes you will notice is that actions will display controller specific glyphs for supported controllers.
In the near future we will be releasing and supporting a set of official localizations. The next update will feature tools for the community to author and translate their own localization assets which players will be able to subscribe to.

This build also adds a new Leaderboards menu! This is something that has been running in the background in the last build so the leaderboards are already populated with lots of results. The leaderboards display rankings relative to your friends so open it up and see who’s the best survivor so far!

There’s also some great new animals, a better tutorial, improved fire lighting mechanics and nicer particle effects! See the patch notes for more info.

Have fun! 🙂

Stay Alive!
