The good news for fans of Gigantic is that the game is getting very close to its launch state. The bad news is that there isn’t an exact date to discuss right now, and as a result of the team working hard to prepare the game for launch, updates have slowed down a bit. But the further good news is that the latest dispatch from the team talks about exactly that and promises a big update by the end of the month replete with all sorts of fixes and improvements.
Bots and voice chat, for example, are both fully integrated in internal builds an should be a part of the game’s next major update. The developers are also working on improving the experience of playing the game for new or returning players, creating an experience that does a better job of explaining the complexities going on beneath the surface. They’re also hard at work solving disconnection issues, so you can make matches and play with confidence. Don’t take our word for it, though; you can hear a lot of it straight from the team in the video just below.
