Do you guys plan to add new animals to the 3rd episode? If yes, which ones? It would be so amazing if you didn!

An icon is displayed on the account button, both in-game and on the title/splash screen, as well as the Game News tab itself whenever the game detects a new announcement, so it's hard to miss. I don't think it goes away until you've read the latest entry, but I could be wrong. The latest entry in that tab is "Episode 3 in development!". The link in that announcement redirects to this section of the forums. ;)

The team post each update across multiple locations -- the Steam News hub and their official social media accounts, so anyone who doesn't follow the forums but does have an account on one or more of these sites can still follow for notifications.

...unless you're referring to 2.5, in which case, people still playing that version will have to do the good old fashioned check-the-website-for-updates thing. ^^;
I know that you can check the news in the game, but what I meant is that not everyone checks the news and my suggestion of the pop up tab was to make sure that everyone is aware of the news

Would donations expedite this process? And if enough people donated, would it make the new episode free for everyone?

Those pictures of Tower Fall are just breathtaking! I'm sure the map will be as well. This was a great choice; looking at the other areas around Slough Creek and Amethyst Mountain, Tower Fall is definitely the most geographically interesting. And, unless I'm mistaken, there appears to be a road running through the western side. Perhaps we'll be seeing cars full of Yellowstone tourists driving through?

This is so exciting! I cannot wait to see what all this episode has in store for us.
Tower fall is absolutely beautiful and definitely a good place to place the next episode.
I wonder, will it be the final episode? I'm sure it's still too early in the development to decide that yet though.

Considering Dave's response below, we'll have to see what Episode 3 manages to fit in.

After your pups grow, will you go back to SC to raise an other generation? What happens next, or is that being saved for another awesome update?

There are some technical reasons which we'll explain in a future blog post, but it's also due to timing: Elk and moose calves aren't born until late May/early June. Wolves make the journey to the rendezvous site in early June, so those offspring would not be wandering around as they will be later in the summer in Tower Fall. So that won't be an issue.

I may have misunderstood, but does this mean moose and elk calves will not be introduced in Episode 3? Or does this mean they wont be added in the current Episode 2? Sorry if i misunderstood.

Elk and moose calves won't be added to Slough Creek/episode 2 map, but they will be in Episode 3's map (Tower Fall).

Personally I feel like that as much as that would be awesome, chances are, it probably won't end up being a reality. I can't speak for the developers, though.

This is going to be a very interesting game, but maybe a little strange as you'll be running around with one or four additional wolves.

There is one thing I been wanting to ask...if your mate dies, can it be possible for us to find a new mate or have dispersal wolves join our pack (since that happens quite a bit). I know the mates respawn, but given how single form no longer lets us respawn (which is kind of a downer because that completely ruins a chance of hunting difficult prey)...it kind of would be interesting if we had to start the process all over.

The elk and moose calves are going to be a fun experience, but will deer ever be introduced? They are an important part of a food source...which now makes me wonder.

Will Episode three involve a special pack hunting set up (kind of built in so we won't have the wolves running around and making a mess of things).

Yes, Mule deer (bucks, doe, calves) will be introduced.
