Hey Tamers,

Lots to update you on this week, so let’s get right into it. Pre-beta period ended with the successful Combat 2.0 test – we had a lot of positive feedback about the updated combat system. The Untamed Community enjoyed battles, especially with devs! We were happy to spend a couple of hours playing the game with you guys!

Another big update of this fortnight is the fulfilment of two of our Kickstarter rewards. We sent out exclusive Thoona wallpapers last week and Guppy Portraits this week to all eligible backers. It’s great to see them as your profile pics on Discord and as your screensavers as well!
