Players of the game will be familiar with NPC quest giver Bushranger, and his spawn location near the river. Unfortunately, the Bushranger has disappeared. The place where he used to hang out now has a grave. So, what happened here? Well, research suggests that the character Kyle was able to engage in a secret exchange with the now probably deceased Bushranger.

Upon entering the secret interaction, the Bushranger would express that he was trembling in fear. This has led many to believe Kyle murdered the Bushranger, primarily because Kyle is a woodcutter. But does this mean the Bushranger won’t make a return to the game? Well, therein lies the second mystery.

Players of the claim they have heard strange music coming from within the grave. And that seems to be the reason some players believe he might make a return (maybe next season?)

Leaks regarding coming event

The abduction of locations, courtesy of the Mothership, will probably take place during an upcoming event. The Mothership will use a beam of light to abduct the locations, and players will probably be able to be abducted as well.
