    I remember ds saying there would boats for esp 3 and Chris saying he just needed to iron out how they will work. Is there a road map out for this yet ?

    No and Im pretty sure they said they wouldn't be putting out any sort of timelines in the future. It's just extra work that will delay progress. In my opinion their time is better spent finishing up episode 2. Makes sense to wait until that is wrapped up, before spending any time on episode 3.

    Adding new things usually causes issues, so any sort of timeline is bound to get off track. Which in turn makes people angry because they were hoping for something to be implemented at a specific date. Rather not open that can of worms again, but maybe that's just me.

    Ohh I didn’t know eps 2 wasn’t done yet, I stopped playing a couple of years ago and I have been waiting on the introduction of a useable boat system before I return. Sounds like it’s no where near that date then?

    if it takes 4-5 years per episode it’s going to be a little bit before we reach esp5 (part of the package rewards)


    um everywhere ??? Little confusing post not sure what that has to do with boats but thanks?

    I was cracking wise about the first response.

    Episode 3 is not even a pipe-dream.

    Why not. After all, I was promised 5 Episodes as were many others many years ago :)

    In addition, I haven't really played Episode 2 yet. Waiting for the story to flesh out a bit.

    Currently, you can go run around the various Episode 2 areas and just have a blast. There’s nothing yet in them that would be any spoilers for the Episode 2 main quest.

    If you haven’t been running around in them, you are completely missing out on some great and fun scenes.

    The flip side to that, though, is once (if) the story content goes in, you'll pretty much just run from person to person completing the quest(s), as you'll already have mostly explored the scenes the story takes place in. It's a personal preference, of course. But once it occurred to me how boring the content would have been in my favorite games if I had already explored every inch of the world first, I opted to stop visiting new scenes. To me, it'd almost be like a second playthrough, just hitting the places I know I need to go to get to the end. I'm sure there will still be some new surprises, and maybe a few unlocked areas only added later as quest goals, but not nearly as many as there would be if I'm on a quest and entering a scene for the first time.

    I'd prefer a Finishing E2 roadmap, but that's just me.

    I'd just like to see an Episode 2 Road Map to begin with.

    They are more than a little allergic to commitment these days, anything that might result in a legal obligation is anathema to their current design philosophy.
