Hinterland. Good foresight to seperate the story mode and sanbox into two. Both have their own seperate needs.

I was intending to write more but life got in the way so i just tapped send, i meant it was nice they seperated the sandbox thread and the story one.

And I was going to ask if theyll ever release cool development videos or more videos on their current team and what they do, those always interested me because i want to be an animator/concept artist for movies/video games.

Id be particularly interested in how they developed the motion graphics artstyle we see in the cutscenes etc.

It has come up in discussion with the volunteer mods but obviously there's no confirmation that they'll be able to do it @MarrowStone. With the release date now only weeks away the team is completely focused on that.

I wonder if the team will need a bit of cooldown after release because of how hard I'm sure they've been working? Like, a month of simple bug fixes, if necessary, but nothing super big, maybe even just take a break entirely.

Im a little confused, @cekivi, sorry, what do development videos have to do with modding?

So to clarify...because I don’t know anything about how story mode works yet...after finishing the two episodes does it dump your character into the sandbox like most sandbox games?

Or no?

I'd prefer ending up in the sandbox after completing the story obviously....

I would hope for a season 2 although Raph said that if season 2 came about, it would be a separate game all its own.
