[UPDATED] Console and Mobile Port Status Update

Recommended Posts

Master Wolf    126

1) Will console players be able to have access to the loyal skins for purchasing shipwrecked and RoG?

2) Will console players be able to have access to buying skins directly from you guys?

3) Will console players be able to have access to skin trading and/or more skin drops (to make up for a lack of marketplace/ trading)?

Than you so much much for the update.

There are difficulties with answering some of this directly because various platforms have different policies for how they deal with items. For exaple, on steam, we can see specifically that you own something and then give you something for it. Or we can give you a key and then you can use that key somewhere else. On console, we can't do that. We are currently in the process of getting as close to parity as they will allow us on their respective platform. But I don't have anything I can tell you for sure right now. 

It is very likely that console players will be able to buy skins directly and we are currently looking at what we can do to make up for the lack of a marketplace and person to person trades. The weaving system might be the answer here and we may just balance the drops so you have more opportunity to get cool stuff. This is something that should be coming very soon.

Usually you have to log into a developer’s website, using an Xbox Gamertag or PSN ID in order to let them track you (most developers do this). Maybe this way, we console players can get the Metheus puzzle :p.

Thanks, I can’t wait, specially being able to purchase skins directly from you guys.

You are getting the content, but it won't be coming as an event. Essentially, when we catch up it should be in time for the next seasonal event in February and we still need to get you into The Forge which will be coming a short while after that. Running the winter event would push all that out even further. 

 

We're not getting it as an event? What do you mean by that, actually? I'm guessing we'll be able to manually activate it in a new world? Or can we activate it in our current world?

Thank you for the update!

I hope you guys find a good answer for that. Personally I would love to buy like event skins from you guys but,I know many won’t agree with me but if you can purchase any skin ,elegant items would lose their worth and that’s one thing I always liked about the console version,that they are so rare and hard to obtain! This might be a unloved opinion  but it also makes it worth for me always coming back to it.But whatever you guys do I’m sure it will be a good solution.

What about fixing the game?

I think it's more important than "localization".

The skins will not be dropping - however the game content will be in the game

ok ok let me get this straight?  We need some clarification, we are not get winter feast, BUT we are getting the benefits like more chances for skins  ect right? 

And are we getting snowfallen skins after you guys have played catch up or atleast gladiator skins when forge shows up?

Because what you wrote makes it sound like hey we are playing catch up and we dont have time for winter feast, but you will get benefits and a feb event coming up and forge will be in late feb+ or march ish.... did i get it right?

Its not on if u ask me, i got dont starve as the free ps plus game way bkkkkkkk. Played all the time. Soon as dst come out i paid 4 the game but now i lose interest in my fav game have a mega bace 2500+days bored of the grind always get gloves or tshirts Quality of life late game is poo as we dont have mods. Noted that its near on impossible to mod 4 ps4 in the same way as pc but ur have 2 adapt that console should have a new system 2 in place so we can benefit. I dont mind paying klei my hard earned money for skins or add ons for late game quality of life players. We r Stuck in Halloween i know this is a moan up in a way but   They didnt want 2 give us the winter feast as they didnt want to update the code 4 the new skins 4 bosses. Only 4 skins drop aweek no trade opinion just the standed game but u guys hot fix ppls mods so they work with the game u add stuff 4 the modders 2 help but nothing 4 us lot. I can under stand ur a small team but just look at the ark game. It was 4 pc now its console and any update or add ons they release they do it 4 pc xbox and ps at the same time. My brother writes code makes apps and all that so i know its not difficult 2 update the ps4 code its coz they working on hamlet update 4 pc we wont get till months has past they put console and the bottom of the pile still haven't had sw update or have they fixed the lag cant give us servers 2 rent from them, would just b nice 2 feel like ur lot care 4 us console players as pc players get upset u go running 2 help. Come on guys show us u care

Yea this is confusing. Are we getting Christmas feast in the update as a game setting for new worlds if we were to start over and select Christmas feast as the events? Just not a live version of it where skins drop? If no Christmas feast this really is a pow right in the kisser. Especially as we were led on in December to be getting Christmas feast soon as the new year starts. Been waiting daily since Christmas checking for updates to now it sounds like were skipping it?

Yeah, there will be no auto updated servers, just being able to make a Winter’s Feast server. He answered this in a question before:

“You are getting the content, but it won't be coming as an event.”

Ah I see, just was confused with the specific contents he was referring to, thanks for clarifying.
