When will the new DLC be released?

Post by sdgmlj »

I can wait, but I'm afraid my youth won't allow it!

The official version made me from 30 to nearly 40,

How much youth do I have?

If the new DLC is released, the following things I must do:

1. I will buy it no matter how much it is

2. Whether it's fun or not, I'll buy it. Even if I don't play, I'll buy it

Because I like this game, but I'm afraid my youth won't allow it

What does your youth not allow?
Like you said, whether you play or not, you will buy...

Exact dates are still a bit early I fear.
Those are the current official news:

According to the 7-step plan in FFF367 they said, that they are at step 4

My ultimate goal is to make the official release earlier.

"My youth" is my metaphor. I mean that when I get old, I won't have the energy to play this

I think, everyone wants the release earlier, but it will take the time which is needed.

Honestly, the energy to play this game depends more on motivation and less on age, in my experience. If you think you get too old for this game, it's probably time to get more distance and strive for regeneration. Factorio is really an exhausting game from time to time. If you are motivated, its very much fun, but it won't last forever.

You need to play it more as you get older your brain needs the problem solving exercise to keep you sharp. That is your motivation. I'm in my 50s and love the game, definitely in my top 10 and I have been playing video games sense the Atari 2600. :shock: 8-)

"Sometime this year" is a reasonable deduction from the above snippet. And given controller support would take time for development/testing, that might mean the expansion release is August-October.

Actually, the reasonable deduction from that snippet is “maybe late this year, maybe sometime next year”.

You missed two key components of that snippet : *if it comes* and *much later* …

You aren't understanding what I'm saying. Whether controller support comes or not is irrelevant. It is the fact if it happens, it will be much later in the year. Couple that with the statement that the expansion is their top priority, perhaps meaning it won't be a focus until the expansion is complete. Much later in the year could reasonably mean November-December. Which leads to my earlier statement- "And given controller support would take time for development/testing, that might mean the expansion release is August-October."

It should be noted that by saying the expansion has top priority, it doesn't necessarily mean the controller support gets none. It's still possible that they may get the controller support done before they finish the expansion.

Obviously, I'd hope for the expansion being done sooner than later, but I'm just saying that you can't with any level of assurance say when the expansion will be done by that comment they made.

You're right, its fun to guess with sparse data points. We'll see what happens. 8-)
