Yes, the long drought is over! Wolves in WolfQuest will finally be able to take a drink of water, for a big boost to stamina and a small boost to health.

This new action will be added to the existing game late this year, as well as the new episode.

My little heart is fluttering!

As an animation fanatic, I'm loving the smoothness of the motion. At long last, we'll be able to drink! Hooray! Look at that water, too! Wow! I'm absolutely stunned. And this is only the beginning, I assume!

yes finally!

Ahem...

I'm so glad this is going to be a 2.7 and 3.0 feature! You guys are truly amazing with this! Our poor wolves have gone, what is it, 9 years? without being able to drink.... xD They must be severely dehydrated.

Hey, I really like this! It's not going to be a necessity (like eating), though, is it? It's just a bonus if we drink water?

Correct. Water can be quite a distance away, so we don't want to make it a requirement that could get annoying, but a helpful boost (and just fun for RPing).

Hahahaha, witty. I agree, though. This is a lovely addition, although I'm glad it doesn't necessarily complicate the survival aspect any further. It's nice to have this extra bit of interactivity in the game, and the animation looks fantastic! Thank you for treating us to this :)

Phew! I was concerned that death by dehydration would be a new way to die, haha.

Oh my gosh that looks absolutely fantastic you guys have come so far with the fluidity of these animations, These are phenomenal keep up the good work guys! This drinking will definitely help with bull elk hunting, I have a question though, will there will be a limit to the amount you can drink to prevent 'power drinking' for health to add an aspect of realism?
