Consoles Update

Posted by 8 Points (Creator)

Hi from HypeTrain Digital! As you may know, after buying the rights to The Wild Eight in August 2017, we formed a new division in our team - which continues working on the project, now in Early Access on Steam. This team has already released a number of big updates for the game: Animal Taming, the new Combat System, as well as done work on bug fixes and general optimization.

With buying rights, we’ve also assumed all obligations to Kickstarter Backers, which includes sending physical goods and, of course, releasing XBOX ONE and PS4 versions of the game. We truly believe that success of the game was only possible with your help.

We have already received all the devkits and started development on the console version of the game. But still huge parts of the game such as multiplayer and render require heavy re-work, since they originally weren’t developed with console architecture in mind. Coupled with content updates, it becomes a large chunk of work, which will undoubtedly take some time. We can't share any dates, but really hope to finish all of it till the end of 2018.

To say thanks for waiting we're going to send every PS/XBOX backer Steam keys for The Wild Eight, as well as the soundtrack on January 12.
