    As someone who played on old gen consoles, and purchased a new copy for the current gen based on the original timeline we were given on this release, i disagree with this being a "free" update. I would never have bought a copy for ps4 if it wasnt required for the new content. So far i have seen no return on my purchase, and very little information as to when i will be recieving this content.

    You have til the end of the month, per Pipeworks revision. You're not the only one waiting, I'm sure Pipeworkds is working as hard as they can. I for one would rather wait for them to deliver something they can be proud to deliver versus getting some buggy mess that isn't enjoyable to play.

    To each their own. I would rather they kept their word and released during q2 like they advertised they would waaaay back in 2016. And since that ship has sailed, i would like them to have at least taken an active role in keeping their community informed. We are now 1/3 of the way though sept, and still no new information regarding the promised release. The only information we recieved in months comes from thier youtube Show case and streams. One week its absolutly going to be a q3 release. The next week they shrug and tell us they don't know. I get it, they didnt want to release a buggy mess, but with the deadline getting so close, they have no excuse for not providing us with a new update on timeing.

    It would be nice to hear something soon. Like you said, Q3 is almost over and there's no new info. Might as well just be a Q4 release (hope not). Also can you people stop pointing out that "Hey, a delayed less buggy version is better." We know...

    They really can't.
    Anything to get those relogic brownie points.
    Settle in for a spring 2018 release, just in time for half life 2 episode 3 and a court ordered sanction to kill micro transactions!

    They couldn't delay to Q4; they've had enough time.

    Yeah, it was originally supposed to be q2, they announced they would be delaying into q3 back in i think may, in a different forum post. They just never updated this one. The forum page "an update on timing" is supposed to be their definitive page for news on 1.3 but they havent given any new updated information in months.

    Ok so wait. It said Q2 of 2017. Isn't that ending? I'm sorry I'm just really excited for this!!

    Q2 has already ended. They delayed it to Q3 and I'm sure they won't delay it again as we'll give an even bigger uproar.

    You're right about community involvement, it could be better. However, We'll have to agree to disagree when it comes to releasing in q2 as advertised, I think the backlash would be more severe with the community. It came as no surprise to me that the update got delayed, it's a huge patch. Keeping a promise would seem an afterthought compared to: ex. Mobs not dropping certain items from their table or rolling certain prefixes.

    I'm sorry to hear that, but the fact is the only thing they've guaranteed is that current gen will be getting the update. They talked about their goals for release but never promised an actual date. When you pay for content do you prefer that it works or not?
