What is the purpose of an update? Well, obviously, it’s to update people on the situation or status of something they’re a part of. For video game developers, the update is a perfect way to detail the status of a game they’re making, or a patch that’s coming, or a new mode or detail that they’re developing, or all of the above. It’s a way to show that they care about the games community. For the team behind The Black Death, it’s very important, as the game is on Steam Early Access, and is still in its beginning stages in some ways.
This weeks update focused a lot on the work that’s being done to fix the game, as well as work on a certain area of the game. The team lament that they can’t talk about some of the changes yet, as they’re just not ready to be revealed. However, they would confirm that The Black Death would be getting a major update that would fix many key issues that the game is having.
All that being said though, next weeks update will apparently yield something very big for the game. What that is exactly is unclear, but the team is very excited for it.
Aside from that, the team is working hard on a key location that players can visit, Freeman’s Port. This legendary location is getting a lot of detail put into it. In fact, they want the port itself to look as if it’s infected. There’s also going to be a lot to explore in the port, plenty of NPC’s to talk to, and much more. They want this area to be big and special, and apparently, Freeman’s Port plays a big role in that upcoming update we told you about.
The Black Death is available now via Steam Early Access.
