The Black Death starts you in your underpants. Deal with it.

    
22

Thanks to the latest patch for the medieval survival sandbox The Black Death, all players will start their lives in the game in their underwear. It’s best to tap into those deep-rooted nightmares early, in our opinion.

The recent patch wasn’t just about roleplaying Captain Underpants and the Plague Doctors. The team said that the priority for the patch was to fix some LAN server issues and put an end to land claim exploits that were running rampant on PvE servers.

What else do we have here? Well, girls are starting to get their own clothes, although right now this is limited to a primitive vest. YOU’RE WELCOME, FEMALES. There are also new dagger animations, a “new potato procedural resource” whatever that is, and a sleeping bag for players’ tents. Truly, this is a patch to rival all others.

“Out of thin air comes another one, a male this time and thank goodness he have underpants” … this is silly :-)

Why not start with random items? not asking for much, but random set of cloth, maybe an item or two, no one reach middle age without owning something.

I guess if this was your game Mr. Schlag, you’d have the helms drop first! o.O

A complimentary tube of Neosporin would be a nice gesture from the devs….

So it’s ground camping in underwear with the chance of a nasty nasty end …. Potato … procedural …. resource …. some whatchmacallit or other while you’really dying horribly. I have to hand it to these guys, “Let’s pick the worst period in history and make a game out if it!” Yay!!

Why do girls get tops and guys don’t?

Either tops for everyone or tops for no one!

Because then all the guys would have female avatars and spend all day looking at themselves and never get anything done. Who wants to go raid when you can look at breasts all day long.

I have heard that…*whispers* there are girls who like to look at breasts too.

Shocking, isn’t it?

If this game was really hardcore they’d start you off as a newborn and you’d have to survive to adulthood in real time and death would be permanent. Oh wait, that’s real life.
