Is it just me who keeps repeating the video to see some "easter egg" or the landscape? :lol:
I'm simply speechless to describe this magnificent thing! You guys are working really hard, thanks for that great job. 8)

:D! My favorite NPC looks so good with his new makeover! GIM is really doing a stellar job with these models, and the sounds & animations really bring it all together.

Thank you to all of the WQ team for your hard work and for keeping us in the know. Even if the game takes longer than anticipated, I'm sure it'll be worth the wait to see all of the TLC you've given it come together.

The new bear model has so much more life to it! The way it washes its paws, it's a nice little detail. Looks like the new animals are coming along really well, and I look forward to seeing what amazing upgrades the other animals will receive. Even if it takes a while, I'm sure they'll be worth waiting for!

The angle of the video really makes the bear look massive and intimidating, especially when it's standing on it's hind legs. Can't wait to run into one of these!

Also this isn't super relevant to the update, but I really love the fur on the new models. It looks great.

This new bear looks and sounds so much better than the current one! I love it! I do wonder if this means the coyotes and wolves will get new sounds too? I think the howls could use some improvement tbh :'D

Wow, take a look at this guy. The larger claws, the muscles, the intimidating theme--I'm definately going to have to learn to express caution around bears now. With this being said, this is such a beautiful model! That team from Slovakia sure can conjure up some really smooth looking models.

horribilis? What, did wolves name them?

I keep trying to imagine how harassing bears away from the den/a carcass would work more realistically (in WQ 3/Tower Fall), and I think the incredibly wide wolf turn radius and the low agility of the player wolf makes those sorts of encounters stiff and difficult. Are there any plans to increase wolf dexterity (moving sideways left and right, jumping backwards, and quickly turning 360°)? It would make bear encounters more natural-feeling, as well as just the player wolves' movement in general.

I've noticed this also. It's like that if you're in SP or the host in MP. If you join a public game, you're able to turn faster. It's weird :lol:

Hahaha I bet wolves named the bears XD and bears named the wolves (not really)
It would be nice to host games/be in SP without this difficult and stiff turn ability. Plus it would help us take care of bears, instead of trying to turn around, catch a glimpse of a grizzly then have a pup die x(
