Developer Crafting Legends has announced that the Death Trash update schedule is changing as the team shifts its attention to developing new content.
Death Trash is a post-apocalyptic game that combined old-school role-playing with a hefty dose of action and player freedom. It's featured in both the summer and winter Xbox demo events last year. Since then, the game has launched in Early Access and the devs have been hard at work making the game's roadmap a reality. The way Crafting Legends releases updates, however, is about to change.
Why the Death Trash Update Schedule is Changing
Previously, the Death Trash update schedule saw gamers getting a patch roughly once per week. That is now going to change to a monthly schedule due to two factors: fewer bugs to crush and a need to develop new content.
"So far we have updated the game about once per week since release," read a Steam Community news post from the developers (via Reddit). "This fast rhythm was really helpful in improving the quality of the core game."
"We're focusing on new content though, which often means bigger chunks of work, and the remaining bugs are less of an immediate nature. Therefore an update rhythm with longer intervals seems to be more fitting to the development tasks in front of us."
However, it should be noted that this shift to a monthly schedule is being made for the public branch of the game. Players who would like to receive updates more often can opt-in to the beta branch on Steam, but you should keep in mind that this version of the game is largely focused on getting feedback and reporting bugs.
It's always good to see developers clearly communicate their intentions to fans. If you're looking for a new game to play, you can give Death Trash a go by buying it for PC on pretty much every major digital storefront for $19.99 or your regional equivalent.
