The team has been following up in the communities for queries from players, hence we’ve decided to have a Q&A session to better answer those questions. The Q&A session will be held onwards to answer any questions.


Jason, Feb 10, 2023


Hello everyone, these past couple of days we have been following the forum and gathering all kinds of thoughts and ideas and we are going to answer some of the questions that you have asked in this post. We hope to not only provide you with some useful information on the future but to get closer to all of you.


Q&A


Q: Can we expect some regular updates and new content, or it’s just bug fixes that we can expect? 

A: Absolutely! Our Dev team will continue to produce new content like new weapons and heroes as always. We will look to incorporate future TWD show releases into the game.  

At the same time, we will continue to do our best to fix the problems and bugs in the game, and if you encounter any problems in the game, please feel free to leave comments on the Forum.


Q: Would you mind briefly introducing the release rhythm? Will it become super slow?

A: Actually, we are going to start with a smaller release, since it is the first release for us and with a lot of changes related to the transition, we’ll try to maintain the same rhythm that you've been used to after that. 


Q: Any significant changes to the current gameplay? 

A: Honestly, at this point I would say that’s really difficult for me to say what exactly will be changed for now. The team is now focusing on ensuring a smooth transition and getting everything sorted. But moving forward, as I start to go through all the great suggestions from you guys, I will be sure to share them with the team. So back to the question, I’d rather say that, at the least, more weapons and heroes will be implemented into the game, and if you have any ideas, please feel free to leave comments on the Forum!


Q: ​​Is a wish list from the player okay for you guys?

A: Yes, we are very eager to hear from you - this is what we care about. If you have any ideas, concerns, or thoughts, please feel free to leave comments on the Forum - happy to read through and discuss with you.


Q: Any future plans in regards to the new spin-offs? 

A: Definitely, we hope to provide players with a great continued experience. Brand new levels, features, and heroes… will also be updated in the game along with the new TWD series in the future. Please stay tuned!

    Next Games hasn't made any updates to the Outpost, apparently because the code was created by someone else. Would that be a problem that prevents DECA from updating that game mode as well?

    @JasonW - I'd recommend joining a guild and playing the game to get the best perspective. My guild has an opening and it is a great spot for you to learn more about the game from a player's perspective. We are a seasoned crew. We will even waive our minimum for you.

    How will the forum be handled? Will the existing database from NG be moved over to the DECA forums so no accounts and post counts are lost?

    Guild Wars is in need of a rebalance. All end gamers find it easy and most wars end as a draw. Zombie missions are no challenge and PvP are rather easy as badges don’t count and AI is rather dumb.

    Badge crafting is a pain and frustration for most. Re-rolls are too prohibitive. Some ideas to improve and simplify are welcomed.

    I love the game and concept and I hope you guys can bring new ideas to life without damaging gameplay

    Consider attracting new players. Game is prohibitive and progress super slow for newcomers. The upgrade system for guns and armour purchased for $$ is dumb - only end gamers will spend with this system in place.

    Would this be too unimportant/irrelevant/extraneous to address or consider sometime in the future?

    Thank you so much for your continued efforts of the game!

    I have been wanting for YEARS the Fear TWD characters!
    I need a John Dorie, Daniel, Strand, and Alicia!
    Maybe even a Teddy? He is one of the best TWDU Villains in my opinion.

    If any of the Fear cast was added for its last season, it would literally be a dream.

    I literally dreamed about it.

    What will be the biggest change we can expect to see in the short to medium term? In other words, how will you treat the game differently than next games did?

    Can you please increase the equipment limit. Over the last couple of weeks I have gotten so much equipment and I've had to delete survivors I've had since the beginning that were at high levels to make room for the heroes. Plus it takes so long upgrade the equipment and the survivors.

    Just in case if you're not aware, Epic and Legendary equipment won't get deleted if you go over the limit. 

    You also don't need to delete survivors to make room for Heroes (they get their own slot for free).

    Unfortunately I signed up for OUTPOST in the begining years ago and stop playing,so those players are assigned to Lower level weapons.  I cant delete them I have only Epic or Legendary weapons.

    Can we please have The last stand available to play for more than 3 times. I read before the updates they used to have it every day which seems logical because to get the points that you need to get the rewards it takes to long. There are new players and there some who have return as I have.

    Will there be compensation for players who need to pick up gear purchased from the GW shop before the update?  those who buy after the update will have a level up

    What are some of the short/long term plans/vision for NML since DECA has purchased the rights? A basic timeline outlining what to expect will be helpful. Not only for the community but also for DECA. Transparency is key here considering Next Games ended development on Our World and Stranger Things has migrated over to the Netflix universe.

    As I said in the announcement. It's difficult for me to say what exactly will be changed for now. 😥 But I will be discussing this more with the team to move forward.

    @JasonW

    We will see about that. 😊

    Hey man. These Forums are often busiest on the weekends. And Next Games staff was always scarce on Friday thru Sunday. ( this was especially frustrating during Guild Wars) 

    So my question is: will you be available on the weekend? Or will someone on your staff be available? Or will you all put your phones on do not disturb? LOL 

    Thanks my man.  🤔😉✌️

    @jasonw you should add a Tomato event to help with this nonsensical grinding. 2x tomatoes for sale would be nice. We all hate upgrading useless buildings to get to the point.

    Are there plans to add the game to Steam? Playing on a PC without using emulators would be nice.
