Gato Salvaje Studio has released the first of their three planned Winter Updates to their myth-filled RPG, The Waylanders. Today’s Community Update brings significant changes to combat and character equipment based on community feedback.
“Since our Early Access launch, we’ve been talking with players and listening to their feedback in our Discord, Steam community forums, and on social media. We’ve included quite a few suggestions on how to improve our game in previous updates, but today’s release is entirely focused on community feedback.” said The Waylanders Creative Director, Serio Prieto. “Combat has been overhauled to feel more intuitive and tactical, character levels now give bigger leaps in progression, and the equipment you use will have more of an impact. We’ll continue to keep these conversations going with the community and you’ll see more improvements in coming updates.”
In addition to the new gameplay and equipment changes, this update brings improvements to game cinematics, new cutscenes, quests, combats, and over 150 bug fixes. Additional UI information for abilities, companions, classes, and more have also been added.
A full update changelog can be found in The Waylanders Steam Community Forum on release.
