If you have been holding off on Green Hell until it fully releases, you will be waiting a bit longer as it looks like there has been a delay in its production. This is something that sounds weird as Creepy Jar has had it out there in Early Access for a while now and the only thing we are seeing getting the delay is the Story Mode 1.0 update for the game, but it is causing the game to get pushed out a bit. At least in terms of the full release of Green Hell as it looks to be aimed to move from Early Access with the Story Mode update in Summer of this year. All of the other things are par the course for now.
This is a weird kind of update to me, but it is what it is. I have yet to go hands-on with Green Hell and it has been getting constant updates since it first hit the market out there. It has been an amazing ride for the game from what I have seen and the fans and team have been able to keep moving forward with it all in the best of ways. All so we can get some better updates and the game move from an older version of Unity to the newer one so that Green Hell can be fully optimized. I hope this means that we will see the game hit other platforms when or shortly after it leaves Early Access on the PC.
Green Hell — Announcement Trailer
Originally scheduled to release out of Early Access in late Winter 2018, Creepy Jar has announced that Green Hell’s ‘1.0 Story Mode’ has been delayed to Summer 2019. Enjoying a string of successful updates so far, the development team has decided that in order to continue to deliver the best experience possible that a short delay is in order.
While a precise release date for 1.0 has not been decided on, the team at Creepy Jar will be taking the extra time to bring Green Hell to the Unity 2018 engine from the current Unity 2017 engine. Featuring the much anticipated Story Mode, a massive map expansion, new enemies, and more, the engine upgrade will result in a better-looking experience, and a smoother, much more optimized final product. Not only that, as part of their ongoing relationship with their community, Creepy Jar wants to continue listening to and implementing some of the amazing suggestions provided by their dedicated player base.
In the meantime, fans can look forward to the Mud Update which will arrive within the next few weeks! Featuring new items and crafting alongside the addition of mud-based buildings and apparatus, the Mud Update aims to continue Creepy Jar’s track record of providing quality updates with the players in mind. More information on the Mud Update will arrive soon!
Are you at all upset that Green Hell is getting a slight delay now or will it just make the final release that much better? Do you suspect that the upgrade of the engine is the bigger reason or could it be other parts of the story that we do not know as of now? Could we see the game make the jump to the consoles around the same time or will that be further down the line after the PC version is perfected? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. There will be more for Green Hell and we will have it here for you. Just be sure to keep checking in for all of that soon.
