Breaking into the gaming scene with a post-apocalyptic RPG experience, Broken Roads has certainly caught the attention of gamers worldwide. Set in the vast landscape of Australia, this game boasts a morality system that is said to redefine the genre. Drawing inspiration from classic Fallout titles, Broken Roads has had a somewhat rocky start since its release on April 10.

In a recent tweet from Drop Bear Bytes, the developer of Broken Roads, it was acknowledged that the game fell short of player expectations in certain areas. However, the team has not given up and is actively working on improving the game. A detailed roadmap has been laid out, promising various changes and enhancements to be implemented soon. Some of the upcoming updates include manual leveling for companions, improvements to random encounters, localization fixes, quest logic improvements, new animations, and more.


Looking ahead, players can anticipate custom keybinds, a more fleshed-out final chapter, additional dialogue options, increased companion interactions, impactful gear, and more skill checks in future updates. The first quality-of-life update is slated for April 19, with another significant update planned for May.

Despite its ambitious concept, Broken Roads has received mixed reviews on platforms like Steam. While players appreciate the effort put into the game by the developers, there are notable issues ranging from bugs to design flaws that need to be addressed. With a completion time of around twenty hours for the main story, Broken Roads offers a classless structure that promotes replayability. However, the ultimate success of the game hinges on how effectively Drop Bear Bytes can address these issues.

It's evident that the developers have poured their hearts into this project, and player feedback is crucial in shaping the future of Broken Roads. With a commitment to delivering a higher quality experience, the team at Drop Bear Bytes is striving to meet player expectations and create a memorable gaming journey.
