Really Old Trees

In the sprawling wilderness of Amethyst Mountain and Specimen Ridge, there are a lot of grasslands and a lot of forestland, but with few notable landmarks — so we need to make the most of what’s there! The most distinctive is the Fossil or Petrified Forest — a collection of stone logs and stumps which is all that remains of a forest that thrived 50 million years ago. Buried in volcanic ash, then gradually turned to stone as silica-rich groundwater permeated the ash, the ghosts of these ancient trees are exposed as the dirt erodes—becoming a fascinating landmark for WolfQuest!

Today’s video looks at a new set of petrified tree models created by 3D artist Alex Yung for the game. They’re a beautiful upgrade from what’s in the game now and we imagine players will find the new fossil forest to be a great spot to hang out.

Wow, the petrified forest looks great I like the ones that have the roots exposed. I also really like how the wolf blended into the environment at the end of the video. keep up the good work.

I was actually playing WolfQuest when I got the notification on my phone that WolfQuest had uploaded! The new fossilized trees look pretty good so far. The Fossil Forest is one of the most interesting locations in WolfQuest, and I'm glad to see that it, like everything else in WolfQuest, is being improved. The game seems to be coming together quite nicely so far, and I can't wait to see what these petrified trees look like in the finished version.

I didn't know rocks and petrified trees could erode/look like that. It's odd and fascinating. I think we can all agree this will be a beautiful game, and I doubt it'll be very long until we get AM. I wonder what Slough Creek will look like? Beautiful, no doubt. Well, until then, keep it up, WQ Developers! We're getting closer.

The artist behind those models did an outstanding job. Can't wait to explore in-game.

Fossil trees, very old, very cool! :D This looks pretty nice and adds a touch more realism than the previous fossil trees.
