I’m not going to recognize this game when it is released. The fighting mechanics look fantastic, even when they are broken!

The movements of the darker circling wolves are so realistic to me! I was impressed by them the most! Although I understand the fight poses are still a WIP :P.

On a different note... for some reason, watching this particular update video brought something to my attention about the anatomy of WQ model wolves that I haven't been able to articulate before. It's been in my subconscious I guess, but I haven't been able to put my finger on it until now.

Does anyone else think that where the hind paws meet the ground seems too far forward for the neutral/not moving model pose? When I Google images of "wolf standing", the vast majority of the non-arctic wolves that are standing on a level surface have their metatarsus bones behind the hindquarters, rather than at or slightly in front of them. To me, the WQ model wolf looks like it is standing on a rounded boulder, not flat ground, because the lower part of the hind legs is farther forward than it "should" be.

Disclaimer: I'm mentioning this observation moreso to see if others agree with that opinion, rather than asking for a model change. I don't really know, but I imagine that's not a quick or high-priority tweak at this point in the project!

WOW....I keep getting sooo excited the more I see of these videos!!

Is there still going to be controller support for when this is released?...there is soo many new mechanics and such I think it will be much harder to do all of this new stuff with just a mouse and/or keyboard.

Ahhh this new video has me so excited for the update! I think it's really interesting seeing how you guys put together the fighting mechanics and refining it. It's looking really cool so far!

Holy crap! The wolves look great (the fur and lighting look absolutely amazing!), and the fighting is looking really good! I especially like the fact that wolves can dodge each others' attacks; that will definitely make things more interesting.

This looks super awesome so far! This seems extremely difficult, but it looks awesome, and I can't wait to use it in the new release :3

I'm super excited about the pvp/fighting mechanics, as we've never had them interpreted to wq before(aside from now).

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for the early access stuff ;3
