Hey Everybody, 

Today we have a new update coming to the test branch, some new Twitch items and a login bonus item.

The team has been hard at work on the next major content update "Reap What You Sow". This is a pretty substantial update in terms of impact so we need your feedback on bugs and as well as tuning, so please don't be shy. To be clear, there are a lot of things we need to dial in to get the tuning right for this, so tell us what you think, this is not final.  
There are a number of strings that have not been completed and there are still some items in development, such as the Composting Bin and the Lord of the Fruit Flies so this will be filled out more as we approach release. 

Key Points

  • Survivors can now plow fields and sow seeds to grow the crops of their dreams
  • Each vegetable has their own unique plant with preferred growing seasons and type of nutrients
  • Stay close and tend to your crops and you will be rewarded.
  • Neglecting crops won't be the death of them, but you might regret it.
  • Be sure to cull weeds before they become a problem
  • Use the Gardeneer Hat to research plants and track your progress via the Plant Registry 
  • Farm like the Ancients with the Premier Gardeneer Hat and learn your plants’ every desire

Additional patch notes

Up Next!
We're going to try to get Winter's Feast out for you all in a couple weeks. As with Hallowed Nights, we don't have any real changes to it this year since the team is focused on content updates. But we'll have some more free stuff and some new skins as well. Including, new skins added to the Snowfallen collection! 
Shortly after that we expect the content update to release toward the middle of December and we'll make sure to tidy everything up before we head out on holiday break. 

Till next time, Have fun out there!
