Today's game update features TruRACS - the True Random Antler Configuration System. With TruRACS everyone animal will have a unique set of antlers, scored exactly as you see them in the game. Through sophisticated algorithms and rule sets the game engine produces a unique set of antlers for every animal, every time you play.
Besides a load of other features this update also contains the enhanced ground blind and tree stand, allowing you to leave them in the woods to later return to them (even another day).
For more details about the update, see below. The update will be automatically downloaded and applied next time you start the game.
