    I honestly think that a new campaign is upcoming, and that is the reason of the teaser.

    Probably some new DLC is what I am guessing. Maybe a few freebies thrown in, doubt it is anything "major". :(

    It says welcome to Triton on that sign. So maybe it is a new planet/moon in deep space.

    Nah, that's no snow, that's the star skybox shining through atmosphere

    It’s probably a teaser for the new weapons and shields upgrade that is coming out.

    You did that just to rattle my cage. Git them shields off my lawn!

    New planet type: Triton. Perhaps a new moon system and tile-set they plan to add. The sign says "Welcome to Triton".

    new skin or enviro-skin effects : You can tell by the fact that blocks have a frost skin overlay on them in the shot. The containers in foreground for some reason are hard to see the effects but they're there. Every other function block has clear FROST on them; even on the drone. The frost effect is even on build stages, as judged by the scaffolds of light armor blocks in their incomplete build stages.

    Biggest hopes?

    WEATHER - BIOME EFFECTS.
    I would die and go to heaven if they added any form of weather detail based on the Biomes you explore. Which means I hope they add something funky to the Alien world to certainly add to that Alien appeal.
    I also hope it effects game play! What if sand or frost build up effects solar panel output!? What if storms or wind means turbines can get damaged due to over-speeding!? What if cold temps hurt batteries if they're not kept warm by massively decreasing their total charge?!
    WHAT IF?!?!?!?!?!?

    please Keen?

    I do really hope it is a new planet and/or moon. It does not seem like Keen has actually done much with the planets themselves since they were added.

    I like to take blind guesses from these teaser pics/short videos- I was waaaaaay off on the lost colony guess, but here goes:

    NPC procedural stations, encounters, cargo ships and drone spawners. on planetary surfaces.

    Sort of like the mods Surface Occupation, Air traffic, and Assertive Stations, all rolled into Vanilla. Maybe a light salting of Corruption.

    Yes, Please.

    PS: I see no "frost coating" on armor blocks- the curved corner blocks of that drone are simply Glamour paint/texture... in a for some reason not brilliant chrome/gold/purple.. (??)

    I'm hoping for weather (high hopes I know). I just watched this the other day and got excited...

    If FROSTBITE is all about freezing biomes then there has to be a future update called MELTPOINT where there is very hot biomes right up until the point of things melting...

    Triton is a god of the sea... maybe liquid water.
    R.O.S. - Robot Operating System. The vehicle in the picture looks to be a droid.

    Frostbite... atmospheric effects like snow?

    Throw in a snow weather effect and something that drops the ambient temperature to, say, -80, and you will have all the DLC you need to play the new campaign: Frostbite: Crashed on a Cold Planet.

    Kind of like a small Lego set. I'd pay whatever I paid for the DLC that had the toilets.

    I like the eye candy... but can we step it up a notch... with WIND that exerts randomish lateral forces on your ships and characters.
    With weather like snow and cold... how about a localized change in air density that gives a bump to atmospheric thruster output. That might also work for day and nighttime temperatures.

    I think hailstones the size of softballs and ionizing radiation would be simply splendid.

    I have no idea, this is the Space Engineers sub-section of the forum, perhaps you should ask that question in the ME sub-section of the forum.

    Regarding the SE public test.

    And they don't post in here on ME things.
    They (devs) barely post on SE things in here. :D

    It's nice, after 3-4years of playing this game, and see its slow progression, the game is thriving with lots of updates, since its departure from early access, with this basic Weather Element, it brings up a new challenge and realism to the lifeless oasis of mountains, hills, ice flats.

    I'm still hoping they'll add more variety of Fauna In the future, a stepping stone for lootable consumables, instead of looting "nuts n' bolts" on a pooch.
    --- Automerge ---
    It's puts the space engineers a step closer in having Liquid water on the game, if that comes we'll have water crafts to conquer the planet's oceans. And that's a nice time to play with the "ship's trim and stability calculation" a nice added math field on the game, in my mind as a seafarer like me, making, designing ship's along side with a calculator. With lesser bugs of course.

    I'm glad that you ONLY get "nuts n' bolts" out of those things. What the hell am I going to do with ENTRAILS?
