Howdy again survivors!

First off, thank you for the tremendous support from everyone in the community and any new Bambi’s out there. We greatly appreciate our Patreon Supporters, Discord Subscribers, and everyone who has provided feedback. Y’all are helping take ZSGO to the next level!

We’re a little over halfway through January (30 days since our early-access release) and we have some news for you about upcoming changes for ZSGO. We will be discussing our new monthly update schedule, beta testing branch, the February update, and some sneak peeks of what’s next!

Monthly Update Schedule

Ever since last year’s Steam Next Fest, we’ve been pushing updates and new builds out around every 2-3 weeks.

The new plan is to have an update at the start of every month.

This gives us some more time to test new features in the upcoming update as well as provide a fixed schedule for when you can expect new content.

Beta Branch

With the next update, we are going to test a new approach to updates.

A week before the update is scheduled for release, those who opted into the beta branch will be able to play the update before it’s available to the public. If you’re hungry for more updates sooner, you can enlist in our beta branch on the ZSGO Discord. Being a part of this group will provide an early look into the next update & help us discover any game-breaking bugs.

The game grows larger and larger with every update, so our small team of four appreciates all the help we get from this unbelievable community! 😀

Remember, we are testing this new system and there may be tweaks in the future.

February Update

This update will be the first on the new update schedule.

This means that the Beta Branch testing will open the last week of January and the public update at the start of February! This update is more focused on improving the PvE aspects of ZSGO.

You can expect some new furry animals & bandit scavengers running around the world as well as some features not mentioned in this post.

We will post the patch notes for this update alongside its release.

Dev Notes

Once again, thank you for all the support and feedback survivors. If you are interested in joining the community and journey of ZSGO, be sure to visit the ZSGO Discord. Also, if you have any feedback or bug reports, discord is the best place to be heard.

Good luck out there survivors! Thank you so so much. See you in the apocalypse!

Howdy survivors!
I'm Dev Ear and I mainly handle the gameplay loop, web development, and Discord! I have also been surviving online FPS games for 10+ years. I have probably briefly touched every survival fps game you can think of.
The current survival fps drought means that it’s time for our team to step in and create what everyone has been waiting for!
Besides game development, I like making music and every now and then touching some grass. Since release, it's been nothing but ZSGO however. Can't wait to see what the game evolves into!
See you all in ZSGO!
