W is forward movement, as always. S turns you around 180 degrees -- helpful when you want to go in the opposite direction quickly.

That's no longer an option with the new controls, but we understand that some people would still prefer it. Having two different steering systems can get very complicated code-wise (steering interacts with more game systems than you'd imagine), but we haven't completely ruled out adding that option.

Loving it! I hope it will be more noticeable in the future when the elk slows down, because of tiring. This I always found interesting a wolf pack may take several days just to bring down one elk, they are really patient!

What about the controller support that was supposed to come with this new edition? Seems all of this new stuff would be a LOT easier to do with a controller than the keyboard.

EDIT: ok...HOW do you quote a user?? I can do A quote by how do you get it to cite the user??

I suspected as much, just wanted confirmation! No worries at all- I'll just have to get my hands practicing so they're back in top camera swiveling shape for that Amethyst Mountain early access. Sounds like an excuse to play some more...

I personally felt a bit of an "Over already?" feeling when the video finished. Even with that length, my attention was held throughout the video, too. I'm guessing some people prefer the shorter videos, but I'm definitely with Bushmeat in that I didn't find it too long at all.

I'm loving the look of the tiring system, I think hunting elk will be a lot more exciting with it.

Woah.
Didn't expect that! Yas this is something I need for pup-care! :D
And I noticed something in the background again. I don't know what it is... sometimes it looked like the elk were prancing on top of it XD

Welp, good thing I've been playing a bunch of Meadow as of late, so I should have plenty of practice for when Amethyst Mountain Early Access rolls around XD
