Thank you @JTtheDestroyer. I’ve also selected a few text quotes, as found below:
"Today we’re offering a more detailed look at some of the things to come"
Things to come. Not things that may come, could come, or that we’d like to see. Things to come.
"we’ve yet to mention that we’re also going to be adding buildable siege towers, avatar defense and corpse lockers to keep the fallen bodies of your slain enemies"
we’re going to be adding - no uncertainty, it’s presented as a given fact, nothing less (only one of those features have manifested so far, though it’s currently broken)
"We’re eventually also adding a dye system for customizing your armor and clothes."
Here the use of eventually shows some uncertainty over when (there’s still no if) - though somewhat ironically, this feature (dyes) did make it into the game
"During this period we’ll be adding some major updates to the game in the form of things like The Purge, animal taming and mounts, sorcery, a settlement system and new biomes."
The Purge did make it into the game (sort of, though nothing like it was first described). The rest of those features never did. But it’s we WILL be adding, not “we’d like to”, “maybe” “if we can”. It’s a straight up promise.
For the record I am neither particularly angry or (I hope) ranting that these features were cut. It’s unfortunate, but it happens. I was (somewhat) supportive on Reddit at the time, too. But let us please not pretend as some have started doing that it was never promised, that’s just dishonest.
