If you plan to play this game solo, you are in for a shock. The games mechanics allow for solo play but are designed around group play, and atm make it very hard to play solo.
Even small animals like rats and marmots and rabbits will have 3-4 times as much HP as you and will do at least 3 times the damage to you as you can do to them. Needless to say, you wont get alot accomplished dying all the time to tiny livestock.
Many things have been greatly improved and I am not saying that there is no appeal, but if you don't have a few friends to join with you, or you don't join a tribe with 6-10 active players you are probably wasting your time.
The new revenants they put it are very tough for new players ( shoot even for many vets ) and they stick to the areas they spawn. Animals spawn all over and are a much greater cause of irritation.
Some of you more hardcore types will think this post is some sort of whine, but I would challenge you to join the game and check it out before you think I am exaggerating. Even hardcore players need to build structures to keep out the riffrafff.
Build walls and don't depend on dirt piles to protect you as animals can climb ANY dirt you put up.
