It seems that the winter season has come in the ecological simulation WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition. Beta Patch v1.0.8p brings deep snow improvements and a new graphics setting that may help enhance your gameplay experience, especially if you’re using a high-end GPU.

As soon as you start a new game in WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition, heavy snow will start falling immediately. You’ll also find that the snow accumulates slightly faster now and that its melting rate is a tad slower than before. The latter change was to help the deep snow last longer.

In addition, animals in the game will now leave tracks when traversing on the snowy ground, making it easier for you to know where they’re headed. The deep snow affects animal speed and stamina drain as well. Most animals can also stumble often when being chased through the deep snow, except for Elks.

Another feature that was added in this update is the “Stupendous” graphics quality. This setting allows you to adjust how far grass is rendered, increase shadow distance, and more. This feature helps unlock the full potential of the latest GPUs on the market.

If that player accepts the transfer, the game will then reload for all players, with the new host in charge.
