Game Update 02 has been slightly delayed to do some additional tweaking and testing. We are tentatively planning for release later this week and will update specifics when we can. Thanks for your patience! It'll be worth the wait.
We've pulled these features from this update to reevaluate and make sure that if / when they're implemented it's in a way that addresses some of the issues that players have expressed. They may very well come back in a later update in a modified form, or we may find alternative ways to get the positives without the negatives.
