Whilst also touching on a few important bits of info relating to the current state of the game like Vaulting, which as per the developer update over at Steam
confirms that the team is working on it. And that adding the ability for players to jump over in-game objects isn't as easy as it sounds. Also, the team is addressing the idling players issue... and more. New town!
But of course, the big news is all related to weather... and the new map.
- Added Foggy weather
- The foggy weather effect will hinder player sight on the map. This weather effect has a low probability to occur
- In order to test the weather effect, the foggy weather will have a higher chance to occur during test server gameplay, but will be reduced for Live servers
- Enhanced graphics of the sky in pre-existing weather effects
- Added a new town, East of Stalber

Oh and regarding the planned release date, as per the update "The entire team is hard at work to stay on track with the current roadmap and move out of Early Access before the end of Q4 2017, and we hope to share more details about the official launch later this month." Exciting!
