Thursday will be a pretty sizable patch. New female model, Steam Marketplace, First Person BR and more. We are also going to grant everyone a Daybreak Logo shirt to celebrate the release of our new site and logo. We will have some new crafting elements and UI goodness. We will have more specifics about everything going into the patch in the patch notes on Wednesday evening.

A patch this size and the back-end changes on our side mean that we need to do a full player and server wipe. All of your items that are tied to your account will remain but all items in your inventory and player built structures will be reset. We don't do wipes unless they are necessary and will improve the stability of the game.

Those of you who have been through it before, wear your Player Wipe One shirts with pride this week.
