The last Pre-Season of the year - Adaptation - has arrived, and besides all the bugs the team has crushed (which can be read in full below), there are also significant balance changes and not one but TWO new toys to play with when you turn the white snow red with Dinosaur blood.

Another little gift awaits you. A small compensation package will be given to players when you log in due to an issue with the reward packages not working correctly during the Pre-Season 6 update.

We hope you enjoy Pre-Season 7, and if you find any bugs, please report them directly to support via [email protected]. If you have any questions or feedback to share, join our ... Read more

We not only need more variety in terms of objectives and activities in Expeditions. We need a new map. Judging by their past comments, all of that is going to be DLC instead of going into the base game.

Look at Generation Zero as to what to expect from them after Early Access. Even if they add new, much needed content. It will come with a price tag.
The full release of the game should very much be seen as the base game, and we've announced that it will include a new map, so not sure how you came to that conclusion. :)

After Pre-Season 6 was released, we quickly noticed that some issues had come with the update preventing you from experiencing and enjoying it to the fullest. With this patch, we hope you'll get to enjoy Horde Mode and the rest of the content in all of its gory glory.

We have not forgotten about Leaderboards for Horde Mode, but we had to prioritize getting Pre-season 6 into a good state before biting into getting new content ready and pushed. Therefore it's slightly delayed, but on the way.

If you run into any issues, let our support team know by contacting us here[support.secondextinctiongame.com], and as always, we're happy to hear your thoughts and read your feedback on the update and our game in general on our ... Read more

Hello, Extinction Elites!

Welcome to the Pre-season 6 State of the Game Letter. Pre-season 6 has been a whole year in the making: many of the improvements and features resulted from early feedback we received right as we launched Second Extinction into Early Access. In-game communication was a big request, as was the desire for some sort of Horde-type gameplay. It took this long to bring it in because we knew we had Xbox and its ecosystem joining the family, and we wanted to make sure we could enact crossplay at the same time - a Systemic Reaction first, in all honesty.

The inclusion of the Wardrobe function (being able to preview your cosmetics AND know what was out there) and improved matchmaking experience was also a direct result of what you were saying. We’re very happy to be able to deliver such a whammy! But, there is still more to do…

We also want to note that we’re aware that new issues emerged for some of you with the release of Pre-Season 6: crashe... Read more

Are you using an Xbox controller? The UI should switch over to Xbox control buttons as soon as you have your controller connected and clicked a button. If it doesn't there's probably something wrong with the connection. If you've checked and your controller is working on other games send in a report to support.secondextinctiongame.com so they can have a look. We haven't heard of this issue before so would have to dig a little deeper.

From the day we launched Second Extinction into Early Access, one area of the game that we realized we needed to improve a lot was stability. The number of crashes reported was far more than we were expecting.

You might ask yourself, how do games with plenty of crashes get released?
We are a small team, and we are all on similar hardware and software setups, so with the variety of PC hardware (and software) that exists, there's plenty of things that can slip through our testing, unfortunately. Before we launched into Early access, we did compatibility testing, and those results were very positive. Then when we actually launched, we received many reports of crashes, so our coverage wasn't as good as we had hoped for. We chose to release with Vulkan for our graphics rendering, and that's seemingly a choice that has caused us some problems. Third-party software that injects into the Vulkan driver is something we often see as culprits in our crash reports.

Another thi... Read more

Since the community team for the game only consists of me when it comes to gathering feedback I don't have time to check-in and answer everyone, everywhere. So I've had to make a plan how to gather as much info as efficiently as possible. Discord has become the bas... Read more

There's an issue I've got with some enemies, that make the game incredibly annoying at higher difficulties or even just high danger zones. These are flatbacks, both types, due to them constantly knocking you over over ANY range, over walls or any other structure. This is not fun, not being able to do anything while being tossed around is not fun. Other big enemies and electro raptors are at the perfect spot right now, they knock you down but not as often as these guys. Same applies on overmutated raptors, these are terrible. You took regular raptor and cranked his speed and jump spam to 100. Terrible idea for a pretty cool rapto...

Yes, what Cryosis said. However, the log-in rewards you can get from logging in during the Pre-Seasons won't return in any shape or form in the future.
